Le nationalisme ordinaire, un régime de vérité pragmatique ? : Anthropologie des symboles nationaux au Mexique

Abstract : The aim of this article is to explore "banal nationalism" from an anthropological perspective which de-centers the State from its own prose. This perspective enables to grasp the nation in its social dimension by putting at the forefront of the analysis the active participation of individuals in the shaping and reproduction of national values. Our case study, an Indian community in Milpa Alta, a Mexico City district, shows that more than a consolidated and rigid whole imposed through a "top down" phenomenon, nationalism can be understood as a pragmatic orthodoxy which meaning is produced throughout the everyday accomplishments of social actors.
