Hierarchies of Cohesion and Diffusion
This chapter considers the hierarchy of concentric locations and the nature of identification and attachment to each: microloyalties to neighbourhood, town and city; the province; the country and the state; regional affiliations; European identity; and global constructions of the self. This chapter suggests that the degree that a particular level is prioritised over others is contingent on the circumstance of the moment: narratives are flexible, and accommodate changes in emphasis to meet the context of the discussion. Multiple locational identities are not only the norm rather than the exception, but different settings make different types of identities more or less salient. This chapter will examine each level in turn, from the most local up to the global.
