Setting an historiographic context, this article proposes a new reading of Colombian nationhood in which growing regional participation - in particular, Caribbean interest - leads to adjustment. This change, it is claimed, results from the cultural industry that subverts traditional channels for the construction of Colombian identity as well as from globalisation, which forces a re-examination of identity within a new, transnational context. Thus, if Colombia is to survive its present crisis as a modern nation-state, the profile of regional culture ought to increase, fostering greater tolerance for social, political and cultural difference, and bringing about the gestation of a new, more comprehensive collective.
