Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: The Triumphal Entry was, by definition, a grand occasion. Grand ephemeral architecture, sculptures, ornaments, fireworks, etc. – all seen by a multitude of crowds, designed to transform the city and to overwhelm the senses – was, finally, to be recorded and published in a book. Documented in text form, each monument was described; most were engraved, showcasing large and small items, statues as well as emblems. My presentation argues that the emblems on Triumphal Entries were a type of “foot note." Placed always at the foot of the monument, they addressed especially the learned. Voicing/presenting the designers’ ideas and ideals, these emblems used and were used to present cosmopolitan universal ideas of the time, and to pass them on – not only addressing peers, but also forming a circle of intellectuals within the general laymen crowd.

Abstract: The November 2015 Paris terrorist attacks were perpetrated primarily by French citizens. Yet, the response of the far right Front National (FN) was to treat the attacks as an immigration issue and link them to the broader European migrant crisis. The FN thus frames terrorism as an external problem that “we” as a nation can solve by containing the entry of the foreign “other,” who poses a threat to our national identity and security. Why? In pursuing the “préférence nationale” (i.e., an agenda of excluding migrants), the FN has increasingly justified its positions in terms of explicitly civic nationalism, thus offering ideological rather than biological rationalizations for who belongs to the nation: presenting the other as hostile because their intolerant beliefs pose a threat to “our” national values, rather than because of their ethnicity per se. This paper argues that terrorism provides the FN with a twofold opportunity to pursue this strategy of legitimizing exclusion along civic nationalism lines: (1) the FN capitalizes on terrorism as a nationalism issue which posits that cultural “others” are the enemies of the nation because of their intolerant ideological beliefs, and (2), thereby aligns itself more closely to the programmatic agenda of mainstream competitors in the party system. Through the use of a sophisticated framing analysis of speeches delivered in reaction to six terrorist attacks on French soil during the period 1986-2015, by the leaders of the Front National (Jean-Marie Le Pen, followed by Marine Le Pen) and the leaders of the main competitors in the French party political system (Modem, Front de Gauche, UMP, PCF, Parti Socialiste, and RPR), the paper tests the assumption that terrorism provides the FN the tools to legitimate itself in the French political arena by providing civic nationalist justification for “the préférence nationale.” In doing so, this paper systematizes the framing of terrorism as a nationalism issue in the programmatic agenda of the Front National (FN) across time.
