dc.description.abstract This thesis explores the ways in which nationalism is expressed through cuisine and ethnic restaurants in today’s increasingly globalized world. It examines in depth the relationship between nationalism and globalization, given the presence of global migration flows and the opening and closing of nation borders around the world in response to these flows. This thesis discusses how these flows result in immigrant communities, particularly the Afghan community in the Washington, D.C. area of the United States, developing a transnational and deterritorialized nationalism, that is a nationalism for their home country while in a different country, and how this dual nationalism is expressed through the space of Afghan restaurants and cuisine.
