Picking and Choosing Multiple Approaches
– Reading: Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities Chs. 4, 7, 11 (47-66, 113-140, 187-206)
SHORT REFLECTION DUE in class and on Beachboard – What does Anderson believe are the key components of nationalism?
What is the process by which a people/culture/group asserts themselves as a “nation”? What historiographical approaches is he using? How does the interaction between the historical “West” and “East” play into this process?
How would Said’s argument about orientalism interact with the ideas Anderson is putting forth?
