About the Book

The book is a collection of papers presented at the 13th Triennial conference of the Association of Commonwealth Literature and Language Studies (ACLALS), held in 2004 in Hyderabad. The essays examine the swiftly changing connotations of nation in today’s global world. The contributors to the volume come from different parts of the world, and this makes the collection a truly cross-cultural attempt to re-examine nationalism and understand its complex negotiations in the present. The title Nation in Imagination points to the shaping influence of narratives in the shifting contours of the concept of nation.
