Citizenship and Nationbuilding

This research area is concerned with the role emotions have played in forming political entities, particularly “the nation,” and in identifying their members. The projects look at how emotions have shaped discussions about national ideals, and how they have influenced the ways in which citizens are included or excluded within the nation state. They also consider how emotions have helped construct a shared past and a common destiny in order to maintain a national community.
