We are in a crisis of belonging, of who, what, when, and where. More and more people feel as though they do not belong, more and more people are applying to belong, and more and more people are not counted as belonging. It is a crisis of culture and population, of living together. This chapter addresses the crisis through three principal foci: the social significance of culture, the dislocation of populations, and the response of cultural citizenship. I establish that culture increasingly operates as a resource for nations, note why this is necessary given their increasing cultural mixing (particularly in the United States), and interrogate responses via cultural citizenship that seek to operationalize resources for living together.
