Additional Information: a]. POLITICS b]. Ethnology, and secondary analysis. c]. Contrary to existing theories, that nations and nationalisms began in 18th century imperial Europe, and subsequently, that anti-imperial nationalism is the nationalism known to Africa, this paper argues that there were nations and nationalisms in Africa prior to the 18th century modernist threshold, and that anticolonial nationalism is one of many types of nationalism in the evolution of global history. The paper further discusses the limitations of nationalism both as a theory, and a movement. d]. In demonstrating a grip on theorizing to date on Nationalism, the paper has earned chapter 1 of an edited volume seeking to break ground on the philosophical, epistemological and conceptual basis for teaching and discussing Nationalism in Africa. e/f]. The paper is peer reviewed, and composed in response to a call for papers on the edited volume ‘Rethinking and Reimaging Nationalism in 21st Century Africa’.
