|Title:||Community imagination as a social process : the case of a protestant church community.||Authors:||Ong, Yan Sen.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences::Sociology||Issue Date:||2012||Abstract:||This article reanalyzes the dynamics of imagination in Benedict Anderson's framework on imagined communities. Past treatments of community imagination are found to be premised on a binary dynamic of existent/non-existent. This article studies ideological schemata and imagination management in a Protestant church community to structure a process-oriented framework that recognizes imagination as a field of heterogeneity and volatility. It ultimately argues for viewing imagination as a social process. This has significant implications for community integrity as well as potential as a practical model for future research and application.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/48273||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
