Abstract:My approach is guided by the theoretical stance that, contrary to its vociferous claim to prove otherwise, the nation-state's project of social integration, totalization, and unification is carried through the denial of particularities and differences, because the nation-state's assertion of format equality and social unity has no factual basis. This doctoral dissertation is based on nine months of ethnographic fieldwork conducted in the village of Kandalama, located in Sri Lanka's Central Province.
