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.

Asian History / Studies, Cultural History / Studies, Political History / Studies, Russian or Soviet History / Studies, Social History / Studies

The year 2021 will mark the 100-year anniversary of the 1921 People’s Revolution in Mongolia, which established the second independent communist nation in the world, the Mongolian People’s Republic, and effected immediate and far-reaching changes on the everyday lives of Mongolians for most of the twentieth century. 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.
