CRONEM Conference: Nationalism and National Identities Today: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

12-13 June 2007
University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

At the end of the Cold War many Western commentators anticipated the advent of a New World Order of unipolar American hegemony or/and of global governance under the rule of international law, enforceable human rights and democratic institutions. Since then, those predictions have been met by challenges on behalf of national identities, ethnic rights and demands for the reassertion of statehood. Reflection on the present and future prospects of nationalism and national identities has retained and raised its status as one of the major research areas in the social sciences and humanities. After successful conferences in 2005 and 2006 on aspects of multiculturalism, CRONEM’s focus for the 2007 event is on nationalism(s), national identities and the politics of ethnicity. A number of leading authorities from a range of different disciplines political science, political geography, history, psychology, sociology, sociolinguistics have agreed to give keynote addresses.
