NATIONS & NATIONALISM
for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism
Nationalism, East and West:
15-16 April 2008, London School of Economics
CALL FOR PAPERS
The first day will explore the use of the classical dichotomy in theoretical works on nationalism, national identity and nation formation. By considering historical case studies, the development, interaction and conflict of ethnic and civic types of nationalism will be analyzed on the second day. Historical critiques of and alternatives to dichotomous types like the civic/ethnic and East/West will also be considered. On the third day, the framework of civic and ethnic nationalism will be explored by focussing on contemporary nationalism and approaches to citizenship and immigration.
The 2008 Conference Committee is now calling for papers to be presented on the conference. The application is open to any researcher who is interested in the study of nationalism and/or ethnicity, and PhD students and young scholars are particularly encouraged to apply. The abstracts of the proposed papers should not exceed 500 words and are expected by November 1, 2007. The Committee will notify applicants by November 30, 2007. Submit your proposal on-line now.
Suggestions for panels and additional themes are also welcome. Papers submitted to the conference will be considered for publication in a special issue of Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN).
