ERNiE is dedicated to the critical study of nationalism; it aims to provide an enhanced understanding of that ideology in order to facilitate its critical analysis and deconstruction. The tenets and expressions of nationalism are displayed and discussed dispassionately, with due regard for their historical motivations, causes and intentions, and in as neutral a form as possible, as befits academic scholarship; however, this does in no way imply any endorsement of an ideology which SPIN considers deeply problematic and often pernicious.
ERNiE is an ongoing project.
