    National identity has its roots in loyalty to the tribe or family, but has at various points in history or in different regions been subsumed by affiliation with a religious denomination or political movement. Since the European Enlightenment, the idea is most often associated with the political nation-state and the loyalties it inspires in people.   There are two differing viewpoints when it comes to establishing the origin of national identity: Perennialist theorists assert that national identity, along with the nation, is socially constructed. They view the nation as a product of modernity and therefore national identity as something which is not inherently linked to us but rather owing its origins to pre-modern ethnic groups.

    National Collective Identity ascribes transformative power to social actors rather than viewing them as merely conditioned by the self-perpetuating logic of the state. In so doing, Hall presents a new theoretical model that accounts for human agency as an integral component of national systems. National Identity and Global Sports Events looks at the significance of international sporting events and why they generate enormous audiences worldwide. Focusing on the Olympic Games and the men’s football (soccer) World Cup, the contributors examine the political, cultural, economic, and ideological influences that frame these events.

    Nation-building theory was used primarily to describe the processes of national integration and consolidation that led up to the establishment of the modern nation-state—as distinct from various forms of traditional states, such as feudal and dynastic states, church states, and empires.

National identity has been the subject of much controversy and debate. Some have even suggested dropping the concept entirely. One group, Essentialists, argue that national identity is fixed, cultural, based on birth and ancestry. Another viewpoint is posited by Postmodernists who argue that national identity is malleable, invented or : Andrew Milne.

This chapter is concerned Identity and Social Theory book the development of national identity in children and adolescents, and the possible utility of social identity theory (SIT) and self-categorisation theory (SCT) as heuristic frameworks for the investigation of developmental processes in this by: Social identity theory (T ajfel and T urner ) assumes that when individuals belong to a group, they form a group identity, which becomes part of their personal.

Social identity is the part of the self that is defined by one’s group identity theory, which was formulated by social psychologist Henri Tajfel and John Turner in the s, describes the conditions under which social identity becomes more important than one’s identity as an individual. The theory also specifies the ways in which social identity can influence intergroup.

Per the discussion below on the changeability and impermanence of the bases for national identity formation, note that what we are talking about in this example is the American nation post Both the markers employed for constructing national identity and the behaviour of the American nation were quite different before that date.

A crucial theme of the volume is that social identity theory affects all of us, no matter whether we are currently in a state of conflict or one further along in the peace process. The volume is organized into two sections. Section 1 focuses on the development of social identity theory.

This chapter addresses how liberal nationalist theorists have constructed an argument to the effect that sub-state national societies constitute a distinct category of group, distinguishable from both the majority of ‘dominant’ national society of the host state, and other ‘minority’ groups within the state.

It explores the objective and subjective features of identity which liberal. and by providing a road map for the rest of the book.

A Social Theory of National Identity Dviad M (reill ) holds a social understanding of national identity, arguing that there are five aspects of this identity that play important parts in establishing the national community. The first is in many. David McCrone, University of Edinburgh, UK ’This volume collects a number of Krishan Kumar’s outstanding reflections on the historiography and politics of English identity, as well as his acute discussion of the social thought and intellectual culture of this national tradition.

Nationalism can be briefly described as a theory that gives people an identity as a nation through the imposition of similar identities.

Kohn () described it as an ideology based on the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests. The International Social Survey Program ran two National Identity related surveys.

One of them inand another one in The batteries of. Abrams, in International Encyclopedia of the Social & Behavioral Sciences, Positive distinctiveness. Social identity theory offers a motivational explanation for in-group bias.

First, judgments about self as a group member are held to be associated with the outcome of social comparisons between the in-group and relevant out-groups.

Personal Identity, National Identity and International Relations is the first psychological study of nation-building, nationalism, mass mobilisation and foreign policy processes. In a bold exposition of identification theory, William Bloom relates mass psychological processes to international relations.

Nonetheless, social categorisation theory (SCT) is not a theory of national identity but it is used to explain national identity processes in terms of psychological group membership. For example, the phenomenon of national stereotyping is argued to rest upon the same processes of categorisation that underpin any other group.

Nation and National Identity: Definitions, Concepts, Theory Quite often in the place branding context, you will hear people talk or write about nation branding.

But what is a nation, why do we feel part of a nation, and what role does discourse, especially mass media, play in what we perceive as national identity.

According to social identity theory a social identity represents a self-concept based on perceived membership of a social group and is associated with in-group favouritism and discrimination against members of outgroups.

Conceptually similar is the idea that national identity/membership of a nation represents membership of an imagined community. Social Construction of Nation Reconciling Contrastive Perspectives of National Identity Our attempts at demystifying some issues pertaining to the onto-logical nature of the “nation” provide us with a useful backdrop to examine selected, contrastive ways different scholars construct their conceptual framework in their study of national.

These borders define what is of the nation and what is not and identifies the outermost limits of national identity. The study of nationhood through the lens of territory is vital in explaining the formation of the nation through political geography as the concept of nation cannot be separated from that of sovereignty and the value of territory.

Three decades after its first appearance, identity process theory remains a vibrant and useful integrative framework in which identity, social action and social change can be collectively examined.

This book presents some of the key developments in this area.One social identity theory argues that the person's desire to enhance their social selves motivates people's attitudes and behaviors in intergroup situations.

Therefore, people want to maximize the value of the groups they belong to, as the value of the group reflects on the individual's social self.
