Constituting the German Nation: The Construction of National Identity
through Constitutional Theory and Practice, 1898-1998.
‘Constituting the Nation’ addresses the ways in which constitutional forms
have both influenced and reflected common conceptions of citizenship in
modern Germany. The participants in this project, each pursuing separate,
but parallel lines of research, will consider the complex relationship
between constitutional discourse and popular identities in
twentieth-century Germany. A more detailed outline of the project is
available at http://www.kcl.ac.uk/hrc/gernat.html.
