The article examines methodological nationalism, a conceptual tendency
that was once primary to the advance of the social sciences and undermined greater than a century of migration reports. Methodological nationalism is the naturalization of the worldwide regime of realms via the social sciences. Transnational experiences, we argue, together with the learn of transnational migration, is associated with classes of extreme globalization resembling the flip of the twenty-first century. but transnational stories have their very own contradictions which could reintroduce methodological nationalism in different guises. In learning migration, the problem is to prevent either severe fluidism and the boundaries of nationalist inspiration.
