The Historical Roots of Contemporary Controversies: National Revival and the Assyrian ‘Concept of Unity’

Abstract [en]

In addition to more traditional labels such as "Assyrian", "Chaldean" and "Syrian" ("Syriac"); emic terms such as Suroye, Suryoye , Süryânî, Suryaye as well as a number of combined designations such as "ChaldoAssyrian" or "Assyrian/Chaldean/Syriac" are currently in use in academic, social and political contexts when reference is made to the Assyrians in the English language. Over the last few decades, debates on differing perceptions of ethnic origin and national identity have dominated the community’s internal discourse. This article suggests that we look for alternative ways to reflect upon the current Assyrian "identity crisis" and argues that it should be understood as the consequence of an uncompleted social process, namely the failure of Assyrian nationalism to evolve into a mass national movement.
