#2 José Casanova

This episode of R&T is a recording from a conversation taking place in April, 2021 as a part of the Conversations Series.

The relations between religions, nationalisms and patterns of globalization have historically beenand continue to be complex, multiform, and diverse. They can hardly be reduced to simple unilinear, unidirectional or universal formulations, or to simple alternating dynamics betweenprogressive globalization and regressive reactive re-nationalizations. Professor Casanova guides us through the emergence of various types of neo-nationalisms in the EU and beyond providing us with powerful analogies, historical contexts and seemingly ignored factors that show complex transnational coalitions beyond the European Union.

Music for the Conversation Series is generously provided by the Shavnabada Choir
