Reading group on Benedict Anderson, Imagined Communities (excerpt)


This reading group will be a consideration (and re-consideration) of a key text, Benedict Anderson's Imagined Communities. An excerpt will be circulated for discussion.

Please contact Nan Da (nda@umich.edu) or Alice Tsay (atsay@umiched) for further details.

Reorientations is an interdisciplinary group working towards building the scale and quality of reorientational studies, which is not the rewriting but the rethinking of dominant historical doxa in English literary criticism along a global, transnational and transpacific axis. Topics that reorientational studies take up include, but are certainly not limited to: Global English, Transpacific Nationalism, Global Commodities and Labor movements, Historicizing Globalization, Transnational Discourses and Bodies, Translation and Translingual Theory, Global Imaginaries, Virtual Worlds, Cosmopolitanism, Travel(ing) Texts, Pacific Island Studies, Orientalism(s), Sinology and Neo-Sinology, Western and Eastern Imperialism/ Literary Nationalism, Queer Asians/ Cosmopolitans, Theories of Geography and Space, and the role of the East in Contemporary Critical Theory.
