Patriots often express pride in national literature, claiming great works of art, or great novelists, as national icons. Literary figures may also imagine themselves promoting or embodying a national tradition. Whether novelists proclaim themselves national or are so proclaimed by others, however, the nation always has some boundary: as Benedict Anderson memorably put it, the nation is “inherently limited.” Even literatures whose boundaries are defined by a national language may have fuzzy boundaries, since the relationship of the national language to “dialectal” literature may be unclear.
International Workshop: Departure towards Democracy and Nation State? Current Research on the Local Level in Central and Eastern Europe (1917-1923)

Yet, as we approach this anniversary, the People’s Revolution has become part of the distant past for many Mongolians, who may feel nostalgia or antipathy towards the socialist Mongolian past or who may question its relevance for their lives.
