From the Culture Studies notes: Appadurai : - Reflects on the sense of nostalgia that is part and partial of what makes identity identity. The sense of longing for what we think we are and for how we would like to think of ourselves, makes identity appear elsewhere. We, in other words, are elsewhere. This absence is not only what shapes the relations between south vs.
It is not necessarily in land From the Culture Studies notes: Appadurai : - Reflects on the sense of nostalgia that is part and partial of what makes identity identity.

It is multidimensional. The missing component is imagination. The imagination has the potential to shape interpretations rather than get stuck on one viewpoint. The relations have mostly to do with power and domination. Ethnicity is not linear or stuck; he argues that it changes. You cannot put a finger on what ethnicity is anymore.

This unleashing of the imagination links the play of pastiche in some settings to the terror and coercion of states and their competitors. The imagination is now central to all forms of agency, is itself a social fact, and is the key component of the new global order.
