Title: New Nationalism, Old Ideologies and Left Problems
Abstract: This talk will argue that one core feature of challenging the contemporary nationalist capture involves properly reckoning with its conjunctural affinity to multiple ideological repertoires, some of which we mistakenly consider to be inured from such trends. These multiple discursive heritages include but are not limited to: the liberal – nation in relation to Eurocentric interpretations of tolerance, free speech, secularism, the rule of law and civility; the neoliberal – nation as mediator of economic enterprise and ‘homo economicus’; the conservative – nation in nostalgic relation to the provincial, imperial, Christianist, or rustic whiteness; and the communitarian left – nation in relation to the welfare state and broader anti-market, anti-globalisation sentiments. Particular attention will be given in this talk to the challenges that new nationalism poses to the possibilities of a popular but anti-racist Left politics.
