Nationalisms among the Arabic-Speaking Colonies in Latin America

Immigration and National Identities in Latin America

Steven Hyland

University Press of Florida

This chapter examines the various expressions of long-distance nationalism by Arabic-speaking émigrés residing in Latin America during the first half of the twentieth century. In particular, the essay explores the consequences of three key historical moments–the 1908 Young Turk Revolution, the Ottoman participation in the First World War (1914-1918) and French Mandates in Syria and Lebanon (1922-1946)–in shaping the internal politics of eastern Mediterranean immigrants in the Americas. Novel and contested understandings of national identities emerged, creating spaces for inclusion and exclusion, and forced the refashioning of community.
