some traditional and contemporary emphases in its interpretation. It would stress, for example, its interest in conflicting processes of remembrance rather than assuming that it presents a uniform vision of the past associated with the ‘history play’. Henry V may well extol the potential of English or ‘British’ nationhood especially as it is inspired by charismatic

images of nationhood produced by the Australian cinema is linked indelibly to enduring colonial, cultural associations. The stereotypes of Australian-ness which emerged in early, successful or favoured cinematic representations have entered the consciousness of local and foreign audiences. Consequently they form as benchmark from which subsequent images can diverge or derive power from contrast or comparison. Even under circumstances of indigenous production, the framework of cinema often remains a First World institution, from

4 Feelings of sympathy In the last two chapters of this book, I will investigate in detail the last aspect of my general argument about homonationalism, nationhood and neoliberalism. In the previous chapters, I focused to a certain extent on political rationality and the way debates shaped representations about the nation, sexuality and citizenship. Now, I propose to look at how political affect is central in the configuration of the effects of the social problem of LGBT asylum. This analysis is premised on the idea that the expression of social suffering is

were, at their core, endemic to an established Anglo identity. It did not necessarily include ‘second wave’ immigrant Australians, nor did it encompass the Indigenous experience. Rather, these identities were marginalised, even silenced. Instead of constructing an image of Australia as culturally plural and democratically inclusive – a political community that required its members to share a sense of purpose by adhering to civic principles – Howard constructed a sense of nationhood that drew from cultural cues. Through his words, Howard was reconstituting Australian

Vinland as remembered by Icelanders
Simon Halink

. I will focus on a limited selection of written sources – particularly popular histories and retellings of the Vinland voyages, but also more creative treatments of the subject matter in poetry and addresses – from the late nineteenth century and first half of the twentieth century, when new ideas on Icelandic nationhood emerged in the spirit of the island’s independence movement. Icelandic interpretations of Vinland will be analysed in the first part, but the main focus of this essay lies in the significance Vinland acquired to Icelandic immigrants in Canada. I

in turn provides evidence that not all nations have statehood. The nation state is a legalistic device. It applies to sovereign states that may or may not correspond to nationhood. Nationality is also a constitutional formula. It relates to citizenship – the idea of ‘belonging’ to a particular nation state. For many people in the world, nationality and national identity coincide. But such is by no means always the case, because so many nations are uncomfortably located within states, whilst others are divided by state frontiers. The nation, therefore, is best

interesting since it was written in the heart of Elizabeth’s Protestant court at a time when Catholics were (or were presented as) menacing to both England’s state religion and its nationhood. Few non-Catholic English people late in the century would have recognized Our Lady of Walsingham and her shrine, except in memory, as one of the hundreds of ruins scattered across the English landscape caused by the devastation of the Dissolution of the monasteries in 1538. Yet Walsingham had once been home to a shrine that drew many thousands of pilgrims; it had been centred on what

A world of difference: religion, literary form, and the negotiation of conflict in early modern England
Jonathan Baldo
Isabel Karremann

still mattered more than many other social paradigms emerging at that time, such as nationhood or race. This collection of new essays explores a range of literary and theatrical forms as means of mediating religious conflict in early modern England. The authors approach the issue from a variety of angles, including the representation of Catholic figures in post-​Reformation texts and contexts; the survival and ongoing importance of Catholic ritual as a mode of experience and of representation; and the drama’s engagement of the audience in and beyond confessional

The Anglosphere, England and the Brexit referendum
Ben Wellings

Anglosphere’s core states provided Brexiteers with economic and political models to emulate (and exceed) those of the European Union. Crucially these alternative models resonated powerfully with the wider categories of belonging in English conceptions of nationhood and the past. By framing the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union as a return to the Anglosphere, Brexiteers were able to lessen the sense of rupture associated with Brexit in England (there was little evidence of what this might have implied for other parts of the United Kingdom) and situate a

from Liège – expressed the intertwined nature of internationalist principles and national peculiarities: ‘An international congress is always interesting. There, one sees friends again; . . . one hears very curious opinions, both with regard to form and content, in which one senses the particular qualities of each nation despite their common base of [shared] principles.’153 Accepting nationhood as an element of internationalism, freethinkers measured national greatness through a nation’s contribution to their cause rather than in military might – and this made it
