This chapter discusses the centrality of racial ideologies to the founding moments of the state. It studies how the relationship between racism and the new state becomes a key theme in James Joyce's Ulysses. It observes that it has been widely assumed that, since Irish nationalism was created upon resistance to colonialism, the state that emerged from it would express hostility towards racial ideologies.
