Claire Sutherland has a long-standing interest in nationalism and nation-building - understood as how states construct nationhood to maintain their legitimacy - and museum representations of the nation in selected Southeast Asian and European cases. Claire has published widely on aspects of nationalist ideology and its relationship with cosmopolitanism, citizenship and migration, among others. Claire’s current interests include theorising beyond the nation through a maritime lens, and looking at how structural racism and colonial legacies connect with nationalism.
