Autochthony, ethnicity, indigeneity and nationalism : Time-honouring and state-oriented modes of rooting individual–territory–group triads in a globalizing world

Zenker, Olaf

In: Critique of Anthropology, 2011, vol. 31, no. 1, p. 63-81

Recently, proliferating discourses on autochthony and indigeneity have been noted as the flip-side of globalization. Against this backdrop, this article synthesizes insights from studies of nationalism and research on autochthony, explaining how identity formations literally ‘take place’ by conceptualizing ‘autochthony’ – the proclaimed ‘original’ link between individual, territory...
