- Benedict Anderson's Imagined Communities (1983): need for a more historical and cultural approach to understand the formation of the nation-states; concept of "homogeneous empty time" [9.25 → 10.30].
- Homi Bhabha's Nation and Narration (1990): need for a multi-sided vision of the nation; however, this does not include a transnational dimension (especially in the case of displaced communities) [10.30 → 11.30].
- Agamben's concept of the state of exception; analysis of the border; borders exist between nations but also within nations [24.11 → 24.34].
