Om oplægget

The re-emergence of “identity politics” in the past years has attracted wide attention in popular and scholarly debates. But what precisely is identity politics? Why and how did this phenomenon re-surface at the end of what we call free-market “globalization”? And what might be the form and nature of this ethno-nationalist identity that is largely shaped in the structures of late-twentieth century economic liberalization.

In this class, we will draw attention to the connections between identity and economy, or what can be called “identity economy”, which is rapidly reshaping the early twenty-first-century. That nationalism remerged amid the breakdown of globalization is not a co-incidence. Far from being a counter force against free-market globalization, the twenty-first-century nationalism boosts, and is boosted by, liberal markets. Taking India as an example, we will take a look at how nation-state itself became an enclosure for capital in the shadow of globalization, its lifeblood the dream worlds of capitalist “growth stories” and the majoritarian quest of recovering a mythical Hindu golden past.
