Teaching Reflections and Resources

The subject of nationalism is both complex and expansive, warranting its own undergraduate and graduate classes as well as integration into courses on diverse subjects.  Due to students' diverse and often dramatic encounters with nationalism in their own lives, it can also be an exceptionally sensitive subject to approach in the classroom.  For these reasons, H-Nationalism regularly produces a variety of pedagocial content.  If you would like to contribute your own reflections or resources, please contact Dr. Eric Limbach, one of our editors, at ehlimbach@gmail.com.  Below we provide some suggestions about how to contribute.


Syllabi and Syllabi Discussions: Do you have a syllabus of your own creation that you would like to share with us?  Please do!  We currently have several, but would like many more.  Perhaps you are merely in the early stages of designing a course and would like to explain your goals for it and solicit recommendations from our members.  We'd love to help out, please drop us a line.


Teaching Reflections: Do you have experiences teaching about nationalism in the classroom that you'd like to share and reflect on?  Are there certain challenges or rewards to teaching about nationalism, or about a specific national identity, that you would like to discuss?  Is it harder to teach about nationalism in some places more than others?  A post explaining your experiences and any advice you have for fellow teahers can be a great way to advance how we teach this subject.  Please contact us about sharing your perspective.  We'd recommend thinking of something between 500 and 2,000 words. 


Teach This Source:  Do you have a specific source, perhaps a research publication or a historical document, that you believe works excpetionally well in the classroom?  A post describing the source, providing any necessary context and advice about it, and explaining its merits can be a great way to encourage other scholars to consider adopting it for their own classes.  Please contact us to share your recommendation.  We recommend thinking of a post of between 200 and 800 words.
