Cohen,  R.  2000.  The  incredible  vagueness  of  
being  BriPsh/English.  Interna'onal  Affairs  76  
(3):  575-­‐582.  

HIN  4312-­‐15  Cultura  Británica,  Dr.  Jason  Kendall  Moore,  Universidad  de  Playa  Ancha,  Campus  San  Felipe,  Segundo  Semester  2013    

CollecPve  idenPty  is  important  (1)  to  protect  
minoriPes  and  improve  their  self-­‐image,  (2)  to  
help  the  majority  define  itself  in  terms  of  
excluding  others,  and  (3)  to  promote  
coherence  between  a  people  and  where  they  
live.

Britons  do  not  have  a  strong  naPonal  
idenPty,  in  part  because  BriPshness  is  
o]en  used  synonymously  with  
Englishness.  Eighty  percent  of  Britons  are  
English,  and  they  borrow  much  from  the  
Welsh,  Sco_sh,  and  Irish    

HIN  4312-­‐15  Cultura  Británica,  Dr.  Jason  Kendall  Moore,  Universidad  de  Playa  Ancha,  Campus  San  Felipe,  Segundo  Semester  2013    

The  BriPsh  Empire  is  one  strong  component  of  
being  BriPsh/English.  It  has  been  observed  that  
the  problem  with  the  English  is  that  their  
history  happened  overseas  and  they  don’t  
know  what  it  means.

GlobalizaPon  is  challenging  the  concept  of  
naPon-­‐states,  which  depend  on  taxing  their  
ciPzens,  etc.  However,  there  has  been  a  loss  of  
sovereignty  that  adversely  affects  popular  
noPons  of  naPonal  unity.

Some  fear  that  the  UK  might  fragment  like  the  
Soviet  Union  and  Eastern  Bloc  naPons  in  an  
aeempt  to  restore  ciPzens’  trust  in  
government

The  UK  has  undergone  many  poliPcal  
configuraPons,  none  of  which  has  been  
especially  generous  toward  the  Northern  Irish,  
whose  territory  is  included  in  the  UK  due  to  
BriPsh  loyalists  who  colonized  it.  The  Irish  
quesPon  is  a  source  of  indifference  or  
embarrassment  for  most  English.    

HIN  4312-­‐15  Cultura  Británica,  Dr.  Jason  Kendall  Moore,  Universidad  de  Playa  Ancha,  Campus  San  Felipe,  Segundo  Semester  2013    

Though  the  UK  is  an  EU  member,  most  Britons  
share  an  unfriendly  a_tude  toward  mainland  
Europeans:  the  French  are  perceived  as  
untrustworthy,  the  Germans  as  former  
enemies  who  are  now  at  economic  war  with  
everyone  else.  Other  percepPons  are  as  
follows:  Spaniards  are  sinister,  Italians  
excitable,  Greeks  impoverished,  Irish  vengeful.  
The  BriPsh  have  a  very  us/them  perspecPve  of  
Europe.  

HIN  4312-­‐15  Cultura  Británica,  Dr.  Jason  Kendall  Moore,  Universidad  de  Playa  Ancha,  Campus  San  Felipe,  Segundo  Semester  2013    

Stereotypes  are  that  English  are  generous,  
honest,  taciturn,  tolerant,  eccentric,  brave,  bad  
loves,  decent,  good  losers,  trustworthy.  They  
have  an  ironic  sense  of  humor,  charming  
manners,  a  sense  of  fair  play,  and  sense  of  
stoicism.
