(p.182) 5 “Stretching the Skin of the Nation”
Romantic Nationalism in Eastern Europe
Stanford University Press

This chapter, which considers the relations between empire and nationality in the realm of nation-centered idioms, with particular emphasis on the Polish–Ukrainian context, examines the tension between imperial loyalties and modern national idioms; the latter of which sometimes undermined but often buttressed the idioms of empire. In the 1830s–1840s, however, nationality was rather compatible with empire, which, in individuals, was reflected as a hierarchy of loyalties.

Keywords:   Russia's empire, nationality, nationalism, hierarchy of loyalties, national idioms
