UPDATE- Re-conceptualizing National Identity (SAMLA, NOV. 2-4)

In her article “Scales of Aggregation: Prenational, Subnational, Transnational,” Wai Chee Dimock asks some important questions “On what scale should we study the transnational? How does it mesh with the scale of the nation-state? How does it act upon the latter-and how is it in turn acted upon as a competing as well as a complementary regime of regulation?” Dimock recognizes that the transnational is in a dialogic relationship with the national. This view, however, seems to invite a vertical interpretation of this relationship.
