How does the global phenomenon of nationalism manifest differently from one local context to another? Professor Jaime Lluch (Ph.D., J.D., Yale University) of the University of Puerto Rico sat down with MIR’s Angello Alcázar to give us his insight on the issue, using Québec and Catalonia as relevant case studies in the spectrum of nationalist behaviour. Dr. Lluch is the author of the acclaimed book Visions of Sovereignty: Nationalism and Accommodation in Multinational Democracies (2014), also published in Europe as The Moral Polity of the Nationalist: Sovereignty and Accommodation in Catalonia and Quebec (1976-2010).
Angello Alcazar is a U2 student currently pursuing a degree in Sociology and Literature. An Italian-Peruvian citizen, he is passionate about cultural phenomena, social justice, and sociological issues such as stratification and the social construction of race and gender. In his spare time, Angello is usually writing stories in cafés or watching old movies with friends.
