S·P·I·N - Study Platform on Interlocking Nationalisms

Collaboration with H-Nationalism

SPIN is happy to announce that it has entered into collaboration with H-Nationalism.

H-Nationalism, part of the H-Net forum of Humanities and Social Sciences Online, brings scholars in the field of nationalism studies together across academic and national frontiers and encompasses matters involving theory, methodology, history, and case studies of nationalism, nation formation, national identity, and related topics.

SPIN will work actively within H-Nationalism to strengthen the aspect of the culture-historical study of nationalism by curating that section of its online bibliography and commisioning relevant book reviews.

Dossier "Pundits at war" expanded: Mommsen, Renan, Mann, Durkheim

The section "Writings" documents critical writings inspired by cultural nationalism. The section "Pundits at War" contains writings by well-known authors and intellectuals vindicating their country in the various geopolitical conflicts of the 19th century, especially the Schleswig-Holstein Conflict, the Franco-Prussian War and the First World War.

After the upload of new material, the corpus now spans a century from 1813 until 1915, leading from Ernst Moritz Arndt to Emile Durkheim, and includes texts by the likes of Jacob Grimm, Theodor Mommsen, Fustel de Coulanges, Thomas Carlyle, Ernest Renan,and Thomas Mann.
