Further Details
Abstract Examines nationalism 'from below' in an exploration of four ways that nationhood is produced & reproduced in everyday life. The process by which the nation is constituted & legitimated as a discursive construct through 'talking the nation' is described, along with ways that nationhood frames the choices that citizens make ('choosing the nation'). The everyday meanings & invocations of national symbols constitute 'performing the nation,' while 'consuming the nation' refers to the constitution & expression of nationhood in everyday consumption practices.
