In line with its chosen name, the Private Nationalism Project does not plan to focus on moments of high political drama, but rather on the process by which these moments are so naturally absorbed and embraced by ordinary people. It thus concentrates on the solid texture of ordinary people’s everyday experience and involvement in setting in motion the machinery of nationalism. The project scrutinizes our banal clichés, labels and stereotypes about ourselves as natural members of our nation and about those who are excluded from it. The aim of the collaborative project is to shed light on the overlooked issue of the daily routines of nationalism, the subtle process by which its ingredients infiltrate and are absorbed into citizens’ everyday lives.
