Nationality – Dead or Alive?
Jörn Rüsen
It seems to be clear that nationality is an outdated piece of history. In the field of cultural studies, the idea that we are living in a post-national era has become firmly established. Nationality has become a concept of political disqualification. Whoever stands up for or even defends it as a concept of identity is pushed into the right-hand corner politically, and thus not taken seriously academically (anymore), as well as suspected of racism and subject to fundamental criticism. This inability to discuss nationality is counterbalanced by the fact that all relevant states in today’s world political structure are nation-states. Thus, the transcience of the nation seems to be rather far fetched.
