Contested Inclusion: Status, Movements and Transformations of Nationalism

Scholars have devoted major attention to the origins of nationalism. This talk develops an analytical framework for tracing and explaining how the contents and salience of official national discourses change over time. A social process approach is proposed to explain transformations of nationalism as driven by the conflicts and alignments between state elites and social movements, and patterns of state infrastructural development. The leverage provided by this framework is explored through a comparative historical analysis of early and mid-20th century Mexico, Argentina, and Peru. Matthias vom Hau is assistant professor in comparative politics at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI). {Will appear in FYI on Nov 8, 2011
