Dear All,

 

Salon has an interview discussing Christian nationalism’s impact on democracy in the US. VOA has a video story about what France’s election can teach the US in its upcoming midterm elections. The Washington Post (paysite) published an opinion piece arguing that the GOP is a movement to impose White Christian nationalism.

The Economist (paysite) published a story on how the Good Friday Agreement is under increasing strain as the nationalists are set for a historic win in Northern Ireland's vote.

Foreign Policy published an op-ed by scholar Stephen Walt focusing on what elites are getting wrong about nationalism. 

The Washington Post (paysite) has a story about Hindu nationalism and the demolition of largely Muslim neighborhoods in India. 

NBC News published an article about how Western leaders are feeling relieved with the re-election of French President Emmanuel Macron. Atlantic Council has a piece also looking at the French elections and what the outcome means for Europe and the world. 

 

 

Regards,

 

Justin Collier

 

PS. In light of the ongoing geopolitical crisis surrounding Russian state aggression towards Ukraine, H-Nationalism is looking for authors who can contribute a short post (roughly 500 words) or series of posts providing perspective on the situation in the context of nationalism studies. This could include a survey of short, publicly available readings (along the lines of our main "Weekend Reading" series), thesis-driven pieces, or both. If you are interested in contributing, please email us at prior@mail.h-net.org and collierjustin@gmail.com.
