Welcome to Identity Hunters
This project is about understanding how identity and difference are politicised by nationalist politics. We hunt the instances when identity is made and politicised, we are identity hunters.
This website is a platform for the public, students, and academics to engage with one another and explore the challenges of understanding and fighting nationalist politics. It is administered by students of A History of Nations, Nationalism and Theories of the State, a 3rd-year class taught by Dr Pablo de Orellana & Dr Nicholas Michelsen at the Department of War Studies, King’s College London.
