Session Abstract

As nationalist movements around the world have taken on a religious character—whether Hindu nationalism in India, Islamic nationalism in the Arab world, religiously informed Zionism in Israel, or the political mobilization of evangelical Christians in the United States—what global patterns or differences can we discern? This panel takes up the seemingly newfound centrality of religious belief to nationalist ideologies to ask about the prospects for the resolution of conflicts among ethnic, religious, and political groups.
