Nationalism in the scope of patriarchy
While nationalism has mainly been recognized – and researched – as one of the most influential ideologies of modern times, its connection with morality and sexual norms started to receive attention relatively recently. In Europe, this phenomenon has taken root at different paces and scales, marking the continent's political cultures and multiple identities.
How is a national discourse constructed? How does it intersect with human life's social, private and political dimensions?
Focusing on the Western Balkans experience, Chiara Maria Murgia (IDM) discusses these with Elissa Helms, Associate Professor at the Central European University.
