Nationalism and Development in Asia

Nationalism and Development in Asia

Wednesday, October 17, 2018 - 12:00pm to 1:15pm

Prasenjit Duara

Nationalism as the rationale for development is used by regimes to achieve high levels of growth, but also generates exclusivism and hostilities, often in order to integrate a political core. Popular nationalism has also dialectically reshaped the goals and patterns of development during the post-Second World War period.

Join us for a lunchtime discussion on a recent paper by
Dr. Prasenjit Duara, Director of the Duke Global Asia Initiative and the Oscar Tang Chair of East Asian Studies in Duke University's Department of History.
