Nationalism, Identity and Cultural Recognition: Galician studies and the Post-National perspective

José Antonio Losada Montero


This article aims to provide an interdisciplinary context to reflect on how nationalist historical struggles have configured narratives and identities of political and spiritual redemption, and how both misrecognized narratives and identities are currently challenged by liberal and postnational frameworks. It will first attempt to de-essentialize Galician nationalism through a historical analysis of the struggles faced by Galician women’s associations, "galeguistas" and Galician nationalists during Fanco’s regime. Moreover, we will review how, far from reifying identity, Galician nationalism has historically helped misrecognized groups and cultures re-enact group identity and galvanize collective action.
