The Left and Nationalism
After nine months and seven exciting posts, our The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series draws to an end. Thanks to our contributors for their valuable insights and to our followers for their attention.
It has been an exciting and stimulating discussion. In the course of the seven posts that have composed our The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series, we have dealt with a broad range of both theoretical and empirical matters learning a great many things.
On this page you can find links to all the seven posts of our The Left and Nationalism series, which, from October 2017 to May 2018, looked at the relationship between nationalism and left-wing movements and thinking in a multi-disciplinary and comparative perspective.
Here, you will find the list of all posts in the series:
1. Daniele Conversi, The Left and Nationalism: Introducing the Debate, 20.10.2017
H-Nationalism is proud to publish here the seventh post of its “The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series”, which looks at the relationship between nationalism and left-wing movements and thinking in a multi-disciplinary perspective.
H-Nationalism is proud to publish here the sixth post of its “The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series”, which looks at the relationship between nationalism and left-wing movements and thinking in a multi-disciplinary perspective. Today’s contribution, by Professor Michel Huysseune (Free University of Brussels) inquires into how Belgian socialism has tried to provide a coherent narrative of class solidarity bridging national and other cleavages.
H-Nationalism is looking to expand its “The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series” by calling for posts that will look at the relationship between left-wing movements and thinking and nationalism. We would be particularly interested to hear about case studies from different areas of the globe, either in a country-specific or comparative perspective. Posts should be between 800 and 3,000 words and will circulate publicly on the web and to our 2,500 scholarly subscribers. Posts will be open to comment by H-Nationalism’s subscribers.
H-Nationalism is proud to publish here the fifth post of its “The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series”, which looks at the relationship between nationalism and left-wing movements and thinking in a multi-disciplinary perspective. Today’s contribution, by Professor Marc Becker (Truman State University), inquires into the role of race and nationalism in the working of the Comintern with regard to the South American Andes.
On behalf of H-Nationalism, I'd like to thank Maurizio Ferrera for his excellent contribution and Aleksandar Pavkovic and Daniele Conversi for their interesting comments. The fifth post of our series will be published next Tuesday (20 February). Don't miss it!
I read with great interest Professor Ferrera’s post, finding it exciting and inspiring. Here, I would like to question only one aspect of his interpretation of the ‘revival of regional homelands’. What he is really looking at in this piece is the ‘protest of rich regions’ in Europe (notably examples such as Catalonia, Flanders and Northern Italy). Now, my question is: is the process of opening up of national borders (both in terms of European integration and wider globalisation) so important in this context?
The Catalan blowback.
I read Maurizio Ferrera’s article largely as a response to, and interpretation of, the global ghosts and fears evoked by the Catalan crisis. Moreover, the author perceives similarities between Italy's Northern leagues and the Catalan pro-independence parties; this vision seems to inform much of his interpretive framework.
Thank you for a highly illuminating contribution. Could I raise a few questions that may be of interest?
