Episode 1 (Part 1) : Post-National Imaginaries

In the first part of this episode, Rana Dasgupta, Lara Garia Diaz and Timothy Snyder reflect on the nation-state model, which quickly led us to question issues of citizenship. Since the nation-state is bound to a territory, its citizens form an exclusive group with rights and benefits bestowed upon them following a logic of birthright. Imagining a future beyond nation-states, thus, must imply a shift in our approach to citizenship.

In this second part, our guests discuss the topic of citizenship and what it could mean for Europe.


Rana Dasgupta is a novelist and essayist. Through his varied body of work, he has consistently explored themes of globalization, migration and the twenty-first-century city. He is currently working on a book about post-national futures.

Lara Garcia Diaz is a cultural activist and a social theorist. Since 2016, she is investigating politics of precarity and cultural practices with commons-based approaches through the lens of feminist theories.
