Nationalities Papers

Nationalities Papers <i> Nationalities Papers </i>is the place to turn for cutting edge multidisciplinary work on nationalism, migration, diasporas, and ethnic conflict. We publish high-quality peer-reviewed articles from historians, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, and scholars from other fields. Our traditional geographical emphasis has been on Central and Eastern Europe and Eurasia, but we now publish research from around the globe. As the journal of the Association for the Study of Nationalities (ASN), our mission is to bring together scholars worldwide working on nationalism and ethnicity and to feature the best theoretical, empirical, and analytical work in the field. We strongly encourage submissions from women, members of minority and underrepresented groups, and people with disabilities.

  • Beyond the National Museum Paradigm: Troubled Past Vernacular Representations in Central and Southeastern Europe
    on May 5, 2023 by Asavei, Maria Alina

    As nationalist and populist rhetorics have gained momentum in Central and Southeastern Europe, there is an urgency to disentangle the historical narratives and political agendas displayed by national museum paradigms. And yet, equally significant is the urgency to illuminate the strategies and mnemonic devices through which the past is rendered worthy of commemoration, both in those memory cultures that come to life in opposition, or those which are complementary to the national museum’s paradigms. In line with these considerations, this special issue addresses the vernacular dimension of public memory, with a special focus on those memory cultures instantiated by mnemonic actors who do not necessarily possess the public epistemic authority to materialize their narratives about violent pasts as official memories.
