OPIS PREDMETA:

Poučiti studente i studentice glavnim suvremenim teorijama nacionalizma, analizirati ključne pojmove i raspravljati o klasičnim raspravama, pitanjima i nedoumicama kod proučavanja nacionalizma. Na kolegiju će se raspravljati o pitanju zašto je nacionalizam još uvijek važan pokretač u suvremenoj politici i zašto je njegovo znanstveno proučavanje i dalje relevantno. Nakon toga dati će se pregled i ocjena glavnih sustavnih tipologija nacionalizma, i ispitati kako se ključni pojmovi, kao što su nacija , nacionalizam , nacionalnost , identitet i srodni nazivi koriste kod različitih autora. Nadalje, kolegij će se baviti glavnim teorijama (modernizam, konstruktivizam, primordializam, postmodernizam) koje objašnjavaju nastanak nacionalizma. Također će ukratko ispitati i kako se reproducira nacionalna i etnička simbolika. Kolegij će se baviti i suvremenim društvenim i političkim promjenama koje utječu na budućnost nacionalizma, te će se pokušati procijeniti koliko globalizacija utječe na suverenitet, nacionalnu pripadnost, demokraciju i nacionalnu državu.

Islamism and Democracy
Bassam Tibi - Wikipedia Tibi is known for introducing the controversial concept of European  Leitkultur  as well as the concept of  Euroislam  to discussions about integration of Muslim immigrants to countries in Europe. When it comes to Europe, Tibi distinguishes positive and negative elements of European culture. The positive ones are, according to Tibi,  enlightenment ,  pluralism ,  civil rights  and  secularization . Tibi argues that there is a need for Europe to defend these values, especially in times of  globalization  and  migration  from Muslim countries. On the other hand, Tibi argues that  racism  is a European invention, and that Europeans must overcome what he calls "Euro-arrogance" and  xenophobia  to integrate immigrant.

Ontological Insecurity
  Dear colleagues, in the lecture I tried to connect - fear - nationalism - and the concept of ontological insecurity. Below I bring a quote and refer to two titles. I hope this will interest you in the concept and allow you to connect the theory of nationalism with the theory of international relations. Thank you for your cooperation. Best regards, Tihomir Cipek "By default, nations are held together by master- narratives about the continuous self, moving through time and space. This imagined self stretches from the time immemorial, golden era and common ancestors through chosen glories and shared traumas to the present, which periodically returns to yet another critical juncture on the path towards eternal future.....As Uriel Abulof points out, ‘historical novelty is a grave threat to ethnic ontological security, since it undercuts the primordial claim’ (Abulof 2015: 38-9). In critical situations, amassed inconsistencies in autobiography are brought to the forefront of public discussion pushing nations into the paralysing vortex of shame and self-doubt."   Ejdus, F. (2018). Critical situations, fundamental questions and ontological insecurity in world politics. Journal of International Relations and Development, 21(4), 883-908. https://doi.org/10.1057/s41268-017-0083-3 Catarina Kinnvall, Globalization and Religious Nationalism: Self, Identity, and the Search for Ontological Security,  Political Psychology,25,5, 2004,  pp. 741-767

The Global Class, National State and Democracy
Dear colleagues, you can follow the discussion of the relationship between the nation/state and democracy, the global class and populism in the book: Jan Zielonka, Counter Revolution. Liberal Europe in Reatreat. It is also good to look at the article:  The Global Class and the new Inequality by Ralf Dahrendorf., and Antonio Polito:  Die Krisen der Demokratie. Ein Gespräch.  C. H. Beck, München 2003 Jan Zielonka   The book takes the form of a series of heartfelt letters to the late European guru Ralf Dahrendorf. Several months after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Dahrendorf wrote a book fashioned on Edmund Burke's  Reflections on the Revolution  in France. Like Burke, he chose to put his analysis in the form of a letter, reflecting on the implications of the turbulent period around 1989. Thirty years' later, and faced with an equally turbulent period, Jan Zielonka asks: what next?  This is not a book on populism, however: it is a book about liberalism. Populism has become a favourite topic within liberal circles and few have exposed populist deceptions and dangers better than liberal writers. Yet, liberals have shown themselves better at finger-pointing than at self-reflection. This book addresses the imbalance; it is a self-critical book by a life-time liberal.

"Counter-Revolution. Liberal Europe in Retreat".
Jan Zielonka , Ralf Dahrendorf wrote a famous book on the liberal revolution after the fall of the Berlin Wall and Zielonka, a Ralf Dahrendorf Fellow at Oxford, addresses his ideas as a modern response to equally turbulent times. In this book Jan Zielonka explores the sources of this counter-revolution to the liberal establishment and asks if Europeans can feel secure again? a very interesting book!!!!!

Community and Society
Ferdinand Tönnies distinguished between two types of social groupings. Gemeinschaft —often translated as community (or left untranslated)—refers to groupings based on feelings of togetherness and on mutual bonds, which are felt as a goal to be kept up, their members being means for this goal. Gesellschaft —often translated as society —on the other hand, refers to groups that are sustained by it being instrumental for their members' individual aims and goals https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ferdinand_T%C3%B6nnies
