About this book

This volume offers an empirically rich, theoretically informed study of the shifting intersections of nation/alism, gender and sexuality. Challenging a scholarly legacy that has overly focused on the masculinist character of nationalism, it pays particular attention to the people and issues less commonly considered in the context of nationalist projects, namely women and sexual minorities. Bringing together both established and emerging researchers from across the globe, this multidisciplinary and comparison-rich volume provides a multi-sited exploration of the shifting contours of belonging and Otherness generated by multifarious nationalisms. The diverse, and context specific positionings of men and women, masculinities and femininities, and hegemonic and non-normative sexualities, vis-à-vis nation/alism, are illuminated through a vibrant array of contemporary theoretical lenses. These include historical and feminist institutionalism, post-colonial theory, critical race approaches, transnational and migration theory and semiotics.

Reviews

“The impressive range of case studies included in this collection highlight the complex but intimate relationships that exist, in variable ways, in different nationalist political projects. It points out how notions of masculinity and femininity, sexuality and belonging construct – in shifting and contested ways which vary temporarily and spatially – the boundaries of these nationalisms. An important contribution to the field of nationalism studies.” (Nira Yuval-Davis, Professor and Director of the Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging (CMRB), University of East London, UK)

“In the critical juncture of the Great Regression, nationalist types of identification have increased in spread and intensity. From the Brexit to the Catalan crisis, renewed calls for separatism, national symbols and narratives have acquired relevance, challenging the expectations of a linear trend towards cosmopolitan visions. Focusing on the interaction between gender and nationalism, this very timely volume contributes to our understanding of the diversity and fluidity of various nationalist projects.” (Donatella Della Porta, Professor of Political Science and Dean of the Institute for Humanities and the Social Sciences, Scuola Normale Superiore, Italy)
