Everyday autochthony

Paul Mepschen sets out to examine the politics of autochthony in the Netherlands. He thereby zooms in on the everyday articulation of a metaphoric figure that is central to the culturalisation of citizenship and that has come to play an increasingly pivotal role in the Dutch political and cultural imagination in broader terms: the figure of the ordinary Dutch person.
