The next ENNIN presentation will take place on Tuesday the 25th of March at 16.30 in pod 3 of the CMB. The presentation will be given by Eirik Fuglestad, and is entitled:
“The inception of nationalism and its entry into the world: the dialectics of property, people and sovereignty”
The presentation will discuss how nationalism developed and revolved in America from the 1760`s to the 1790`s around the concept of Lockean private property. The first part of the presentation will look at how the notions of Lockean property became interwoven in a historical narrative and tied up to the notion of a sovereign people. A second part will look how this historical vision was turned into political reality in the form of an American nation state. A third part will discuss briefly the nature of historical documentary research. I look forward to getting your comments on the these things.
