Drawing on analysis and examples from the readings, discuss the relationship between ‘race’ and nation in the construction of national identity in post-colonial Britain and France. How are processes of exclusion and inclusion, and subsequent notions of who belongs and who does not, built on racialized understandings of the nation and national identity? In other words, how are the boundaries of the nation
constructed through representations of essential cultural and racial difference that exclude certain populations and confirm the belonging of other populations? In answering this question, you must draw on those three readings:
１． Paul Gilroy, There Ain’t No Black in the Union Jack(1991), chapters 2 & 3 (pp. 72-79, 85-102) , Ch. 4 (Page:114-135) , Chapters5. Page153-171, 192-197, and 209-219.
２． Todd Shepard, “Introduction” to The Invention of Decolonization: The Algerian War and the Reamking of France (Cornell U. Press, 2006).
３． Enoch Powell’s “Rivers of Blood” speech
Each paragraph of the paper should be about one-third or half a page, and each paragraph should have a topic sentence. In other words, the first sentence of the paragraph should summarize the content of the paragraph as a whole or the paragraph’s main idea.
The introductory paragraph should summarize the topic of the paper, the main argument (i.e. the thesis of the paper), and the texts are drawing on.
The bulk of the paper will be taken up with discussion/analysis of the reading in terms of the essay question.
Each of the discussion/analysis paragraphs should have one main idea. Given the nature of the essay question, you will probably want to structure your paper by author/text. In other words, for this essay Question, you will want to discuss the authors one by one as you examine how they approach the
relationship between race/culture and nation.
Important: use these three readings only:
1. Paul Gilroy, There Ain’t No Black in the Union Jack(1991),
2. Todd Shepard, “Introduction” to The Invention of Decolonization:
3. Enoch Powell’s “Rivers of Blood” speech
