Summary:
"If the nation is an imagined community constructed through discourse, then belonging--the feeling of being part of that nation--can only arise when citizens are empowered to enter the discourse and modify it. Linking political science and cultural studies to explore the mutually constitutive role of discourse and institutions, this volume argues that citizenship is an ongoing and evolving discursive project. Further, it studies the role of culture and different media in the process of citizen-making by taking postcolonial India as its case study."--Jacket flap.
