The Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN) is holding its 21st Annual Conference, entitled “Forging the Nation”, from the 5th – 7th of April 2011 at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The fundamental purpose of this conference is to address the role of performances and rituals in the production and reproduction of national identity. This is an important issue for the study of nations and nationalism, however, it remains under-theorised. It is therefore the intention of the conference to gain a deeper understanding of this issue by moving beyond written texts.We are delighted to announce our confirmed plenary speakers:Professor Jeffrey Alexander (Yale)Professor Carol Duncan (Ramapo)Dr. Jon Fox (Bristol)Professor Anthony Smith (LSE)Additional plenary speakers to be announced soon.For additional enquiries, please email email@example.comClick here to see our call for papers
