Description

To what extent does peoplehood make sense today? Can plural societies tell national stories without marginalizing their minorities? Should historians be concerned with stories of peoplehood? These are the questions dealt with in this book. It describes, analyzes, and theorizes the nature and history of stories of peoplehood and their implications for national identities, public culture, and academic historiography in societies characterized by cultural and social diversity. The book offers theoretical reflections on the narrative character of national identities and empirical studies of the contexts in which they emerged.

Narrating Peoplehood amidst Diversity
Telling stories is an essential part of being human: We tell stories about Edited by Michael Böss
ourselves to show other people who we are and where we belong.
Nations have stories to tell too – “stories of peoplehood” – that build Narratingand maintain a sense of national belonging and identity. The concept
has been used to analyse identities, memories, and histories of indi­ Peoplehood amidstviduals, communities and nations. But does it make sense to talk about
peoplehood today? Can plural societies tell national stories without Diversitymarginalizing their minorities? And is it even fair to assume that our
individual self­narratives are coupled with shared cultural ones?
Historical and Theoretical Perspectives
In Narrating Peoplehood amidst Diversity, 16 internationally renowned
scholars refect on the nature and history of peoplehood and discuss
how it forms part of national identities, public culture, and academic
historiography. Based on theoretical analysis and empirical studies
drawn from Latinos in the United States and African immigrants in
France, and from multicultural stands in Canada to grand narratives
in Danish history, the book is a timely contribution to the ongoing
debate on belonging and identifcation in multicultural societies.
