What is a Nation? What is a Nation? (Qu'est-ce qu'une nation?)[1] is an 1882 essay by French historian Ernest Renan (1823–1892), known for the statements that a nation is "a daily referendum", and that nations are based as much on what the people jointly forget, as what they remember. Nationhood in antiquity and in Renan's time[edit] Renan begins his essay by noting that there is frequent confusion between the idea of nationhood and of racial or linguistic groupings, a form of confusion which he says can produce "the gravest errors". Renan noted that a unique element of the European nation-forming experience was the mixture of races, origins and religions, where conquering people often adopted the religion and manners, and married the women, of the peoples they conquered. Forgetfulness[edit] Renan then states what has become one of the most famous and enduring ideas of the essay. Now, the essence of a nation is that the people have many things in common, but have also forgotten much together.

5. Imagining the Nation — Centre for the Study of Culture and Society What is a 'Nation'? When we cheer for a particular team and country in a cricket game, we rarely question what reasoning has gone into our idea of 'nationalism' at that point. The history of nationalism is now far enough in the past for us to take it for granted that all human beings have nations and that 'good' human beings profess a loyalty towards their own nations. Ernest Renan provided one of the earliest answers to the question, 'What is a Nation?' Though this was one of the first answers to the question and is more than a century old, this answer is far from obsolete. Memories of shared glory, great sacrifices and suffering are vital in creating a sense of solidarity. Thus, to deny the `sacred' bond of the nation then becomes almost to blaspheme against an order that is natural and higher than any that a human being has created. This is why cheering in a cricket match is an act charged with significance. • Activity: List out some of your own answers to the above question.

Watch the United States grow before your eyes - The Washington Post On March 4, 1789, the U.S. Constitution took effect, forming a nation of 13 colonies and a whole heck of a lot of unorganized territory. On August 21, 1959, Congress admitted Hawaii as the 50th state. Now, a clever Reddit user, Anthony Vincent, on the subreddit appropriately dubbed Mapporn, has made this handy gif, using maps created by another cartographic expert, Andrew Leonard, of all the steps it took to get us from point A to point B: Graphic courtesy Anthony Vincent More: 25 maps and charts that explain America Nationalism 1. What is a Nation? 1.1 The Basic Concept of Nationalism Although the term “nationalism” has a variety of meanings, it centrally encompasses the two phenomena noted at the outset: (1) the attitude that the members of a nation have when they care about their identity as members of that nation and (2) the actions that the members of a nation take in seeking to achieve (or sustain) some form of political sovereignty (see for example, Nielsen 1998–9, 9). Each of these aspects requires elaboration. (1) raises questions about the concept of a nation or national identity, about what it is to belong to a nation, and about how much one ought to care about one's nation. (2) raises questions about whether sovereignty requires the acquisition of full statehood with complete authority over domestic and international affairs, or whether something less than statehood suffices. 1.2 The Concept of a Nation Second, the normative ones: 2. 2.1 Concepts of Nationalism: Strict and Wide 3. 4.

HISTOIRE DE FRANCE - L'histoire de France en cartes La présence humaine sur le territoire de la France actuelle remonte d’il y a environ 1 800 000 ans.

What is a Nation-State? What is a Nation-State? In a nutshell . . . The terms nation, state, country and nation-state are used to refer to political, economic, social and cultural actors in the international system. The modern nation-state refers to a single or multiple nationalities joined together in a formal political union. What's the difference between these concepts? A nation-state differs from a "state" or a "nation" for a couple of important reasons: A nation refers only to a socio-cultural entity, a union of people sharing who can identify culturally and linguistically. A state refers to a legal/political entity that is comprised of the following: a) a permanent population; b) a defined territory; c) a government ; and d) the capacity to enter into relations with other states. This distinction is an important one because we, as political scientists, must be able to account for both political and socio-cultural factors in a political entity. What does the growth in the number of nation-states mean?

The Formation of Modern Nation States Video - Lesson and Example Europe Prior to the 1500s In today's modern world, the idea of nations and nationalities is widely understood. For instance, I'm an American, and so are these guys. These folks are not. To begin a nation state is a defined territory with a sovereign government, made up of people sharing a common culture, history, and language. The Decline of Feudalism After the Crusades, or wars fought between the Christian West and the Muslim East over the Holy Lands, European soldiers began returning home with tales of the wealthy East. Monarchs Emerge As feudal lords were losing their grip, a number of European monarchs seized the opportunity to consolidate power by allying themselves with the growing merchant class. Perhaps one of the best examples of a monarch bringing about a strong nation state through trade is Henry VII of England's Tudor dynasty. Feudalism not only fell due to the increase of cities and towns. Church Power Declines Lesson Summary

British values: article by David Cameron This week there has been a big debate about British values following the Trojan Horse controversy in some Birmingham schools – about what these values are, and the role they should play in education. The values I’m talking about – a belief in freedom, tolerance of others, accepting personal and social responsibility, respecting and upholding the rule of law – are the things we should try to live by every day. To me they’re as British as the Union Flag, as football, as fish and chips. Of course, people will say that these values are vital to other people in other countries. And, of course, they’re right. Our freedom doesn’t come from thin air. These are the institutions that help to enforce our values, keep them in check and make sure they apply to everyone equally. The question is: should we actively promote this? But there are 2 other reasons why we should promote these values. I strongly believe that our values form the foundation of our prosperity. The second is social.
