Dates:
  • Wed 18 Nov 2020 17.00 - 18.30
  Add to Calendar 2020-11-18 17:00 2020-11-18 18:30 Europe/Paris MWP Book Roundtable with Prof. Siniša Maleševic (UCD) - Grounded Nationalisms: A Sociological Analysis

Online event (via Zoom).

Book abstract:

Globalisation is not the enemy of nationalism; instead, as this book shows, the two forces have developed together through modern history. Maleševic challenges dominant views which see nationalism as a declining social force. He explains why the recent escalations of populist nationalism throughout the world do not represent a social anomaly but are, in fact, a historical norm. By focusing on ever-increasing organisational capacity, greater ideological penetration and networks of micro-solidarity, Maleševic shows how and why nationalism has become deeply grounded in the everyday life of modern human beings. The author explores the social dynamics of these grounded nationalisms via an analysis of varied contexts, from Ireland to the Balkans. His findings show that increased ideological diffusion and the rising coercive capacities of states and other organisations have enabled nationalism to expand and establish itself as the dominant operative ideology of modernity.

Moderator:

  • Dorothee Bohle (EUI), Max Weber Programme Director and Professor of Political Science (SPS Dep)

Panellists:

  • Siniša Maleševic (UCD), Professor of Sociology
  • Veronica Anghel (EUI), Max Weber Fellow, SPS Department
