Abstract: This paper considers efforts in two different countries to connect curriculum to student identities, in the context of global nationalism. Global nationalism refers to contemporary efforts across the globe to construct the nation as unified, stable, and set apart through dehumanizing others outside the nation. We explore how these efforts, grounded in dynamic theories of identity, encountered challenges in different nationalist contexts, Catalonia in Spain and the United States, when seeking to counteract deficit views of others and re-center curriculum in community priorities. We call for sustained attention to global nationalism as a context that can potentially undermine efforts to link curriculum and identity and for continued attention to the dynamic, fluid character of identity when seeking to connect curriculum and identity.
