Anderson and the Imagined Nation

  • Marc Sanjaume Calvet

Resum

This article is a synthesis of the Theory of Nationalism in Anderson’s
work and argues its applicability to ‘Stateless Nations’. The author’s
point of departure is the interpretations that have been made of
Anderson’s definition of nations as ‘imagined communities’. Anderson’s
definition is presented as universal, realistic and capable of embracing
diverse facets of nationalism — oppressive or liberating as the case
may be. The paper ends with a short reflection on the complexity of
The Catalan Lands from an Andersonian point of view.
