The Bivocal Nation : Memory and Identity on the Edge of Empire.

Author: Nutsa Batiashvili
Publisher: Cham : Springer International Publishing, 2017.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This volume is about a divided nation and polarised nationhood. Its principal purpose is to examine division and polarisation as forms of imagining that are configured within culture and framed by history. This is what bivocality signifies - two distinct discursive voices through which nationhood is articulated; voices that are nonetheless grounded in a culturally common symbolic field.
