Central European University, Budapest, Hungary, 12-14 June 2014
The focus of the conference Nationalist Responses to Economic and Political Crises will be nationalism and ethnic conflict in Central Europe, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and Central Eurasia. Special attention will be given to themes discussing the relationship between economic crises, nationalism and politicized ethnicity.
The year 2014 will be the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I, and also the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust in Hungary. Thematic panel proposals and individual papers dealing with these events, as well as with the connections between them (both in the Hungarian context and more generally), are also welcome.
The conference invites proposals devoted to comparative perspectives on nationalism-related issues, empirical case studies as well as papers on theoretical approaches that need not be grounded in any particular geographic region. Disciplines represented include political science, philosophy, history, anthropology, sociology, international relations, economics, political geography, sociolinguistics, literature, and related fields.
The keynote lecture will be delivered by Donald L. Horowitz (Duke University).
Conference panels will be organized under five sections:
