Summary
"Telling stories is an essential part of being human: we tell stories about ourselves to show other people who we are and where we belong. Nations have stories to tell too-"stories of peoplehood"--That build and maintain a sense of national belonging and identity. The concept has been used to analyze identities, memories, and histories of individuals, communities and nations. But doe it make sense to talk about peoplehood today? Can plural societies tell national stories without marginalizing their minorities? And is it even fair to assume that our individual self-narratives are coupled with shared cultural ones? In [title], 16 internationally renowned scholars reflect on the nature and history of peoplehood and discuss how it forms part of national identities, public culture, and academic historiography. Based on the theoretical analysis and empirical studies drawn from Latinos in the United States and African immigrants in France, and from multicultural stands in Canada to grand narratives in Danish history, the book is a timely contribution to the ongoing debate on belonging and identification in multicultural societies."--P[4] of cover
