Romancing the Nation: French Jews, Israel, and the Rehabilitation of Christian France

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper explores the emergence of romantic rather than Republican conceptions of political community among some French Jewish elites. I will argue that this is as much about Israel as it is about France. The embrace of ethno-religious conceptions of nation is a paradoxical attempt to negotiate Jewish Frenchness and justify the conflation of Jewishness with Israeliness. Some Jewish elites used ethno-religious arguments about belonging to establish the modernity of both “Judeo-Christian” France and Zionism, associating deep pluralism with unnatural and even dangerous post-modern polities. This suggests that diasporic politics has become crucial to local conceptions of national belonging on the margins of some European nation-states.
