Topic: Does religion oppose or enhance nationalism?
The qualities looked for will be: clarity and effectiveness of presentation, engagement with relevant literature, awareness of the context of the topic, and the links with the wider issues involved.
- Not looking for right answer…looking for interesting, sophisticated, well-thought through and convincing arguments.
- Use the Ethno-symbolism theory and the 4 approaches of Brubaker’s article. Brubaker, R. (2012) Religion and nationalism: four approaches, Nations and Nationalism, 18 (1): 2-20.
- What role did religion have in the creation of nations and nationalism?
- But is religion ‘trans-national’? Do movements undermine the nation-state?
