This module provides an historical perspective to the development of nationalist movements in the Middle East in the late 19th and 20th centuries and its aim is to emphasise the coexistence of a multiplicity of nationalist discourses both in the political and intellectual fields. After an overview of different approaches to the study of nationalism, you will be exposed to a variety of case studies. In the last section of the module these case studies will be discussed in the light of the role played by history, culture and by various political actors in the definition of new national communities.
