In the last two decades, scholars have begun to challenge the typologies that informed nationalism research for much of the twentieth century, and most particularly the binary juxtaposition of civic v. ethnic nationalism. These binary dichotomies, as scholars revealed, were normatively charged: they served to justify nationalisms among “western” nations such as the United States and France but de-legitimizing those of “eastern” nations. Illiberal elements in supposedly “civic” nationalisms were obscured, the liberal aspects of allegedly “ethnic” nationalisms were ignored.
