Henry James’s Anglo-American ghosts

discussed here with The Turn of the Screw, The American Scene (1907), ‘The Jolly Corner’ (1908), and his uncompleted novel The Sense of the Past (published posthumously in 1917). These texts have been selected on the basis of their representation of haunted houses, which are linked to notions of art, history, place, money, and national identity. James’s ‘The Ghostly Rental’ (1876) helps establish

particular moment in history was not simply a shared interest in victory on the battlefield. It was a shared belief in the ultimate triumph of human freedom and human dignity – a conviction that we have a say in how this story ends. 48 The wartime discourses laden with deeply felt emotions that the Anglo, American, and Irish leaders expressed during the Second World War defined their nation’s manhood, their national identities, and their national purposes, and had far-reaching impacts at the

Ireland the only country in Europe to experience a decline in population growth in the second half of the nineteenth century (Kuhling and Keohane, 2007: 53). Significantly, Mary Robinson’s speech did not delve into the representation of the Great Irish Famine and its consequences as being caused by the British indifference to its neighbouring island, an argument characteristic of the postcolonial discourse on which the twentieth-century construct of Irish national identity was highly dependent.2 On the contrary, Robinson took the commemoration as an opportunity to show

These surveys were also, more specifically, designed to discover what people living in Wales and Brittany think of their regions, how they envisage their future institutional development, how they conceive of their regional and national identities or how they frame issues of public policy. Public opinion and regional political institutions in Wales and Brittany A detailed opinion survey was conducted in the two regions in order to ascertain similarities and differences across a range of variables (political

relation to Scotland in particular, Kalyan Bhandari’s Tourism and National Identity: Heritage and Nationhood in Scotland ( 2014 ). Of course, the way in which Scotland brands itself has a major impact on its tourism industries and a classic text is Scotland – the Brand: the Making of Scottish Heritage by David McCrone et al . ( 1995 ). Also highly recommended is Imagining Scotland: Tradition, Representation and Promotion in Scottish Tourism Since 1750 , by John and Margaret Gold ( 1995 ). Scotland has seen a number of homecomings by its diaspora in recent years

5 The nation in social practice I Economy, football and Istria The following two chapters assess the way that the disputes about the meaning of Croatian national identity in the 1990s (discussed in the previous chapter) were manifested in a variety of social practices. This third level of abstraction is concerned with how competing conceptions of national identity (Chapter 4) that make use of abstract frames (Chapter 3) are manifested and embedded in social practice and in identifying sites of resistance to the national ‘common sense’. The six brief studies

diasporas. Rather than posit a false binary and fall into a trap of romantic, pure nationalisms, this chapter draws from empirical evidence to interrogate how Caribbean-Canadians embody multiple, hybridised national identities, and explores the ways in which they draw boundaries around their communities and use dominant discourses to demonstrate national identities that are distinct and pure.

which are not as psychologically constraining as the ethos of ‘winner takes all’ … The changes that have taken place in Europe offer, then, the prospect that bitter conflict and tension can be replaced by co-operation and partnership without anyone being cast as the victor or the vanquished and without anyone loosing distinctiveness or identity.39 From this it is clear that Hume was not arguing for the abandonment of nationalism or even the transcendence of national identity. Rather, he was suggesting that Europe, by moving away from restrictive forms of national

. The discourse analysis of political actors’ speeches and debates indicates that Israeli exclusionary policies of asylum have been justified through very ‘classical’ securitising storylines where asylum seekers are constructed in three ways: as a threat to national security, as a disruption of social order, and as a threat to national identity. The analysis of political discourse also shows that in

, the Crusader’s implied meanings accorded with the character and aspirations of its owner. Cartoon representations of an armour-clad Beaverbrook begged comparisons. Was the Crusader Don Quixote or bold knight-errant? In fact, the imposition of chains suggested a further analytic duality. For the Daily Express, shackles symbolised the failure of successive British Governments to secure unity and prosperity through Common­ wealth policy. But from a detached perspective, the Crusader might be regarded as a prisoner of his own restraints. In a national identity context
