Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Today, we face a new wave of nationalism throughout the world. Based on contemporary theories on nationalism this seminar will focus on the role schools are playing in producing and reproducing ‘nationalist literacies’ in the new generations, making the perceptible for both, everyday ‘banal’ nationalism and, in extreme conditions, militant nationalism.

People with only limited skills in English are still welcomed. Translation help in the discussion will be provided.
