Thursday, 22 March 2018 Chapter Thirteen

Join us for a discussion with Leigh French drawing on a long running editorial line in Variant looking at the rise of cultural nationalism.

Leigh will present a new paper still ‘Governing by Cultures’…? Which will ask what might the Entrepreneurial State, Nation-Branding, and Possessive Nationalism all have to do with Embedded Neoliberalism? And act as an exploratory challenge to the view that the palpable strengthening of national identity throughout Europe can be easily confined to a reaction against neoliberal globalisation.

This will be followed by an open and informal discussion.
