Thank god, I'm back!: (Re)defining the nation as a homely place in relation to journeys abroad
Skey, M. 2011. Thank god, I'm back!: (Re)defining the nation as a homely place in relation to journeys abroad. Journal of Cultural Geography. 28 (2), pp. 233-252.
Growing individual mobility has been a key element in the re-evaluation of the links between (national) place and identity in what has been labelled a 'borderless world'. In this paper, an alternative perspective is provided by exploring the ways in which discussions around travel are used to redefine the nation as a bounded, familiar and homely place.
