HSTY2659 - Nationalism
Semester 2, 2013 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Prof Robert Aldrich
Nationalism is surely one of the most potent forces in the modern era. It has generated wars and shaped identities, forged common bonds and torn populations apart. When and how did nationalism first appear? How should we understand this peculiarly modern phenomenon? After looking at the way scholars have understood nationalism, we delve into nineteenth- and twentieth-century case studies, considering along the way how literature, art and popular culture have been crucial vehicles for furthering nationalist sentiment.
