Fomenting Feminist Nationalism
What is femonationalism? How has feminism converged with nationalist and anti-migrant politics?
What is the genealogy of femonationalism? How has the stereotype of the patriarchal, misogynist migrant man been constructed?
How do policies regarding migrant integration and assimilation relate to femonationalism? How has discourse around women’s rights and gender equality impacted the assimilatory and exclusionary missions of nation-states?

Sara Farris focuses on femonationalism within Europe. Research migration (policies, demographics, rhetoric, etc.) within the United States context, particularly focusing on its gendered elements. Is a similar discourse of femonationalism utilized within the United States? Are there similar gendered policies? What are the differences between Europe and the United States?
