Imagined Identities: Identity Formation in the Age of Globalism

Front Cover
Syracuse University Press, Apr 14, 2014 - Political Science - 472 pages
This collection of essays, by scholars from various disciplines and regions of the world, discusses both the construction and deconstruction of identity in its engagement with culture, ethnicity, and nationhood. The authors explore the tension resulting from the desire to create a new cultural space for identities that are at once national, regional, linguistic, and religious, yet also attempt to encompass a political and geographic whole within designated areas.
