Reimagining the Nation presents a clear look at the current state of critical nationalism studies, highlighting contemporary debates and offering paths for future work in the field. Accessible yet theoretically rich, it shows how we can think about nationhood beyond binary or even broader cosmopolitan ideals, drawing on cutting-edge critical research in citizenship, urban studies, and cultural studies, and drawing examples and theoretical inspiration from Southeast Asian studies. Above all, it sets out to resist the all-pervading ethno-nationalist assumptions that continue to underpin a world system organized into nation-states.
