In an interdisciplinary, multistranded qualitative study of ethno-national identity on the Southern side of the Irish border, it shows the moral repertoires that qualify, conflict with, and on occasion replace, territorial-ethnic and state-centred aspects of national identity. It refocuses attention on the cultural and normative content of imagined national communities, and the different ways in which general norms function in particular communal contexts. It casts a new light on Southern attitudes to Irish unity. More generally, it suggests that a form of moral nationalism is possible, distinct from the forms more typically discussed in the literature: ethnic, civic, trans nationalism or even banal nationalism.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Routledge (Taylor & Francis)||Copyright (published version):||2006, Routledge (Taylor & Francis)||Keywords:||Nation; State; Border; Ireland; Europe; Moral repertoires; National identity||DOI:||10.1080/17449050600865511||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
