Acts of Citizenship

Engin F. Isin, Greg M. Nielsen
Zed Books, 15 mrt. 2008 - 320 pagina's

This book introduces the concept "acts of citizenship" in order to re-orientate the way citizenship studies has been investigated over the last decade. The authors argue that investigating acts of citizenship in terms irreducible to either status or practice, while still valuing this distinction, requires a focus on those moments and processes whereby subjects constitute themselves as citizens.

Their investigation involves a sustained engagement with interdisciplinary thought, drawing from new developments not only in politics, sociology, geography and anthropology but also psychoanalysis, philosophy and history.
