Questions related to National Identity
The present situation in the Ukraine and Russia imposes a threat to evaluation of nationalism as such. From the other side, neo-liberal globalization supporters see deep national feelings as a hindrance to their plans and further development. Can nationalism nowadays without extremism and populism be judged positively and in which aspects?
Hello everyone, I'm looking for a good review article, or research paper, on demographic predictors (age, nationality, gender, sexuality, ethnicity etc.) of values. Particularly studies using Schwartz theory of basic human values, or his refined version of the theory. What I would like to know is what predicts the different value types. I do have my own dataset that I am going to test this with, but it would be nice to have something to compare the results to.
Thank you so much for your help,
What is the impact of National Anthems (lyrics and music tonality, measure) upon population?
Does the violence invoked in lyrics have any impact upon population; a positive or negative impact?
May the National Anthems be responsible for the increased aggressive behavior and violence among populations ?
Does the tonality of melody have any impact? What about the rhythm, does it have any influence?
In the paper “National Anthems and Suicide Rates” by David Lester of The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and John. F. Gunn III of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, published in Psychological Reports, 2011,108,1,43-44. DOI 10.2466/12.PR0.108.1.43-44, ISSN 0033-2941 the summary mentions:
“In a sample of 18 European nations, suicide rates were positively associated with the proportion of low notes in the national anthems and, albeit less strongly, with students' ratings of how gloomy and how sad the anthems sounded, supporting a hypothesis proposed by Rihmer.”
Do you know of any countries that consider to change their National Anthem for any reasons, especially due to the invoked violence and/or the mood it creates?
As it is known in the neurolinguistics (Neurolinguistic Programing), the texts as well as certain sounds have a profound impact upon people's mind.
As an other example, I'll mention the anthems of France, United States of America (USA) and Romania , texts that contain blood, bombs, revenge, (perhaps discrimination as we find in the Romanian anthem).
Can anybody add to this study, reference, studies, and opinions please? All discussions will help a great deal.

I am applying the EOS-R on the Romanian community in Malta and it would be fantastic to have an element of comparison, a study into stereotypes carried out either in Romania or with Romanians abroad.
I am researching how Indian textbooks are taking shape in today's world, as India is changing and religious right is gaining power and control. How national identity is defined and promoted through education, curriculum and textbooks.
Dear colleagues! The topic of my research is the "American museums and the formation of national identity in the US, 1877 - 1920". Can you advise me on the matter of searching historic sources concerning the work of American museums in the late 19 - early 20 centuries? As well as those originated in these museums themselves and from the outside. What to start with? Are there any resource guides? I have to admit that I look primarly for electronic versions of documents, books etc but the information about physical library collections and archives will be welcomed, too.
I would greatly appreciate further advice on sources to tap - apart from the BBC! - about the renewed conflict in the disputed Nagorno Karabakh region of Azerbaijan. My dissertation is focusing on whether the 1992 conflict, where it seems there was Russian involvement, helped shape Azerbaijan's post Soviet national identity, and I wondered if Russia might be involved again now.
My thanks again for all the advice I have already received from you.

The contemporary European model of nation-state is based on the ideology of one state, one nation and one language, so we can follow many conflicts involving nationalism and multiculturalism. How can we overcome this contradiction and to ensure equal rights for all? After all, multicultural environments, today and in the past (before the European model of nation-state), are a reality.
I am searching for more information about propaganda in Turkey, due to my thesis in which I want to write a short overview about the 'tradition' of propaganda in Turkey and how the situation considdering propaganda is now. Thanks a lot!
My colleagues and I are interested in the localized social media use by foreign students in China and their identification with China as a nation. We are thinking about the mediators, such as social ajustment, social capital. Could you kindly recommend us relevant literature?
Apart from mere linguistic eloquence, the literature (prose, poetry, fiction and even tabloid serials and story lines of movies) reflects the persona and more importantly, the 'psyche' of a country. The dance, drama and music of the country reflect the beauty of its soul.
This is what we have always believed. But today, the world is multi-cultural. Except for 'national efforts' to preserve the original art and literature of our individual countries, we have adopted certain art forms and literary styles from other countries as our own.
So, do the literature and arts of a country continue to reflect its persona and inherent beauty the way they did in earlier times or have they lost their originality?
I am doing a research to measure secondary school student's national identity. I am interested to know whether there is any measurement or study on the subject in other place.
Representation theory? What else? Key words: user generated content, collective identity, self-representation
I am doing my thesis on nationalism in social media. I have ideas on how to conduct my study (methods), but I don't have a concrete study framework yet. What theoretical framework can you suggest? My focus is on the posts of people that they deem as "nationalistic" and how it affects national identity in social media. I'm planning to do content analysis.
Canada, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, some Eastern European and African countries give examples of contemporary nationalist separatism and independence. How it can be explained from political science angle when it is told oficially about diminishing roles of national states?
Society became a potential power for domestic security, especially related with sense of country belonging.
Indonesia start this education from elementary school till to under graduate school.
What is more efficient?
In the colonial world few countries dictated the way how we thought, taught, and lived our lives. Today, with the advent of communication we say we are a global village. A step further, we even talk of one world, with some discussions even taking on the concept of the Earth as one world. UN and through its agencies (UNSC particularly) we even intervene and 'correct nations and their internal governance'. In this changing atmosphere where universality seems to be gaining acceptance, is the concept of nationalism valid?
I'm trying to develop a course for undergraduate students on postcolonial novels narrating the development of the nation. I'm thinking of novels like Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children.
it should also refer to the beliefs of Italian Identity and can nicely make a reference to the art object "altare della patria" in Rome
