Call for Papers

"History, National Identity, and Political Order in the New Eastern
Europe and Eurasia"

8th Annual World Convention of the Association for the Study of
Nationalities (ASN)

International Affairs Building, Columbia University, NY
Sponsored by the Harriman Institute
3-5 April 2003

100 panels on the Balkans, Baltics, Caucasus, Central Europe, Central
Asia, Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, China, and Mongolia, as well as thematic
panels on Nationalism, Islamic Movements, Conflict Resolution,
Democratization, Demography, Language Issues, Geography, Interpretations
of History, Ethnicity in Film and Literature, Theoretical Approaches to
the Nation

ASN has become the most attended international scholarly gathering
dealing with issues of national identity, nationalism, ethnic conflict
and state-building in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet
Union, Central Asia, and adjacent areas. Disciplines represented include
political science, history, anthropology, sociology, economics,
geography, and

The central theme of the 2003 Convention addresses the complex
interaction of history, national identity, and political order in both
the past and the present. Proposals may focus on particular cases,
theoretical questions, or cross-regional comparisons. Papers or panels
comparing cases of the post-Communist world with cases from other
regions of the world are encouraged.  Given contemporary trends and
events, proposals dealing with Islamic movements, ethnic violence,
intercultural contact and exchange, the Balkans and Central Asia are
particularly welcome. Unlike most conventions, ASN accepts individual
paper proposals, although full panel proposals have a greater chance of
being accepted, due to space constraints.

The ASN World Convention's yearly theme specifically refers to a core
number of panels. Since the Convention is far larger in scope than a
thematic conference, we invite, as in previous years, proposals on a
wide range of topics related to identity, nationalism, conflict and
state-building in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union,
Central Asia, and adjacent areas.
