Deadline of CFP: "Nationalism, East and West:Civic and Ethnic Conceptions of Nationhood"


The Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN) and the London School of Economics (LSE) launch a
Call for Papers for their 18th Annual Conference on:

"Nationalism, East and West:
Civic and Ethnic Conceptions of Nationhood"

London (UK)
15-17 April 2008

It has long been standard in the field of nationalism studies to classify nations according to which principle serves to unify the nation. The distinction between the Western, political type of nationalism, and Eastern, genealogical nationalism as systematised by Hans Kohn in 1945 has been used, extended and adjusted by scholars of nationalism to conceptualise a framework of "inclusive" nationalism based on citizenship and territory and "exclusive" nationalism based on common ethnic ties and descent. This conference seeks to assess the continuing relevance of this dichotomy in its various forms: its contribution to theoretical work on nationalism, its usefulness for historical interpretation and its value for contemporary policy-making.

The conference will include keynote addresses from leading scholars in the field, along with opportunities for scholars from various disciplines to examine the relevance of ethnic and civic conceptions of nationhood in a series of panel sessions. Suggested themes include:

- Civic and Ethnic Aspects of Nation Formation;
- Is Nationalism a European Phenomenon?;
- Alternatives to Civic and Ethnic Nationalism;
- Experiences of Historical Migrant Nations;
- Citizenship and Immigration;
- Multiculturalism.

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. Please see the ASEN website for more information and to submit your proposal.
