    Abstract

    The ideology and practice of James Fintan Lalor is examined as a geographical imagination in the service of anticolonial nationalism. The utopian and forward-looking aspects of nationalism have not received as much attention as the retrospective emphasis upon the restoration of past glories. Yet in anticolonial nationalism, the question of what an independent state could achieve incites a utopian moment and links nationalism to a more universalist discourse concerning justice.
