Chapter Summary

This chapter engages some aspects of the subjective experience of nationalism because that dimension is increasingly relevant to the ways in which homeland nationalist ideology is accepted, rejected, and conditionally enacted within diasporas. It begins by acknowledging that whereas nationalism simultaneously empowers and burdens its adherents, whether collectives or individuals, it does so variously, multiply, differently, depending on whether they live in a nation-state, on a homeland not endowed with a nation-state, or in a diaspora made up of multiple transnational communities. The crude form of the argument that the chapter hopes to develop is that under the pressures of transnationalism and globalization, a form of nationalism shared by homelands and diasporas that until recently was prevalent among Armenians and Jews, which the author calls as exilic nationalism, is being replaced by a new diasporic transnationalism, in which considerations of subjectivity and personal identity play a major role.

Keywords: diasporic transnationalism; exilic nationalism; homeland nationalism; personal identity
