Summary The vivid essays in this interdisciplinary volume combine rich empirical detail with theoretical reflection, offering new perspectives on a variety of media, genres, and religions. The purpose of the volume is to contribute to the development of new intellectual spaces from which the dynamics of current identity politics may be explored. While the essays show that the nation-state still matters in framing people's lives, equally clear is that religions have come to play an increasingly public role in offering alternative imaginations of communities.
