Placing the Nation examines the importance of place in shaping nationalism. Rather than viewing nationalism as something that exists purely at a national scale, it argues for the need to explore how various people - embedded within particular places and operating across different scales - contribute to its reproduction. Placing the Nation explores these themes through a case study of the contribution made by people in Aberystwyth to the reproduction of Welsh nationalism since the 1960s. The varied and detailed empirical themes explored in this book show how nationalist discourses and practices are generated within places and communicated through scalar connections to the broader membership of the nation. Placing the Nation, thus, seeks to re-energise both geographical and social constructivist understandings of nationalism.
