Abstract

This article provides an alternative perspective on the relationship between media and nation by theorizing the significance of media institutions, representations, and practices in routinely articulating the world, as a world of nations. The first part builds a more dynamic framework for understanding these cumulative processes, arguing that an analytical distinction should be made between the mediation of individual nations and the mediation of nationhood. In the second, I consider the possible significance of these processes, namely the articulation of nations as coherent and knowable entities, in sustaining an ongoing sense of (national) identity, place, and community.
