In this article, the author draws on qualitative research conducted with Palestinian American high school students to explore school as a key site for nation building. The author describes how U.S. nationalism and national identities are produced collectively within and through everyday racialized and gendered discourses and practices inside one school. Furthermore, the author examines the ways these productions of everyday nationalism articulate with U.S. imperial ambitions in relation to the war on terror. The author argues that legal citizenship did not protect the Palestinian American youth in this study from being seen and treated as outsiders. The authors concludes with recommendations for educating teachers.
