The ASN Convention, the most attended international and inter-disciplinary scholarly gathering of its kind, welcomes proposals on a wide range of topics related to nationalism, ethnicity, ethnic conflict and national identity in Central Europe, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, the Caucasus, the Turkic world, and Central Eurasia. The Convention also invites proposals devoted to comparative perspectives on nationalism-related issues in other regions of the world, as well as theoretical approaches that need not be grounded in any particular geographic region. The Convention is inviting paper, panel, roundtable, or special presentation proposals for three special thematic sidebars: “History, Politics and Memory”; “Interpretive and Cognitive Approaches in Ethnography”; and “The Resurgence of Russia: Domestic and Foreign Policy Implications”.
There is no application form necessary to send proposals to the convention, but a fact sheet is required. To obtain the fact sheet and to read further proposal requirements, please see the “Call for Papers” at www.nationalities.org. All proposals and fact sheets must be sent by email to Dominique Arel at both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com by November 4.
