THE POLITICS OF RELIGIOUS NATIONALIST EXCLUSION

This session seeks to encompass quantitative and qualitative studies including ethnographic fieldwork, interviews, focus groups, surveys/polling, and media analysis, as well as mixed methods approaches in formulating sites of intervention.

This session explores a broad range of research into the politics of exclusion by religious nationalist actors. It offers innovative theoretical and methodological insights into how religion becomes appropriated into an ethno-nationalist project of identity formation. By interrogating how various actors employ ideologies to justify ‘othering’ practices, this highlights similar patterns of engagement across local and global contexts, including transnational dynamics.

This session seeks to encompass quantitative and qualitative studies including ethnographic fieldwork, interviews, focus groups, surveys/polling, and media analysis, as well as mixed methods approaches in formulating sites of intervention. Drawing on multi-disciplinary research, it aims to develop collaborative discussion surrounding parallels in religious nationalist exclusionary discourses, strategies, and performances. This session complements the conference’s focus on social, political, and symbolic boundaries by interrogating constructions of identitarian membership as framed by religious nationalists.
