This course examines the complex relationships between gender, memory and nationalism. It addresses the main theoretical perspectives on nations and nationalism, as well as feminist critiques of these perspectives. The course also considers the material ways in which nationalist discourses and practices are both gendered and sexualized. Paying particular attention to the politics of memory, the course approaches the concept of the nation and its variants as historically contingent, and continually reproduced through discourse and practice. Particular areas of focus include imperialism, citizenship, sexual violence, ethnicity, migration and populism. Geographically and historically, the course takes a broad and comparative view of gender, memory and nationalism across time and space.
