New Issue of Theoria: A Journal of Social and Political Theory (Pan Africanism and African Nationalism)

Dear Colleague,

The contributions to this special issue respond to a call last year for papers to commemorate the Centenary Anniversary of the University of Fort Hare. This historically advantaged university, the first for black Africans in Southern Africa, was established in 1916 under the Inter-State Native College Scheme led by liberal news editor JT Jabavu. The articles in this issue delve deeper into Pan Africanism and African Nationalism themes.

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!

Re: The Left and Nationalism Monthly Series: “The revival of regional homelands and the perils of competitive solidarities” by Maurizio Ferrera

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?
