Nationalism and Religion in a Global Age

In case you missed it at RMIT Storey Hall in March, you can now listen to the very interesting 2009 Tom Nairn lecture by Professor Mark Juergensmeyer, University of California.

Global Rebellion: Religious Challenges to the Secular State 
If you don’t have a spare hour and eighteen minutes, here is the text version of the lecture (PDF 193 KB)
From his site…
Professor Mark Juergensmeyer is director of the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies, professor of sociology, and affiliate professor of religious studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He is an expert on religious violence, conflict resolution and South Asian religion and politics, and has published more than two hundred articles and twenty books, including the recently-released Global Rebellion: Religious Challenges to the Secular State (University of California Press 2008). His widely-read Terror in the Mind of God: The Global Rise of Religious Violence (University of California Press, revised edition 2003), is based on interviews with religious activists around the world–including individuals convicted of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, leaders of Hamas, and abortion clinic bombers in the United States–and was listed by the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times as one of the best nonfiction books of the year.
