Nations and Nationalisms: Theories, Practices and Methods

The Loughborough University Nationalism Network (LUNN), in collaboration with the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN), are organising an international conference dedicated to postgraduate students (Master and PhD) interested in theories, practices and methods of nations and nationalism studies.

While postgraduate conferences are usually discipline-specific, the present conference aims to be multi-disciplinary, inviting postgraduate students belonging to different disciplines (e.g. Geography, Sociology, Psychology, History, Politics, Arts, English and Drama) to discuss ideas, theories and methods related to their common research focus on nations and nationalisms. The conference will allow students to share their research projects among a multi-disciplinary audience as a way to encourage and generate intellectual exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas.

This is a two-day conference, with postgraduate students presenting their work in sessions chaired by LUNN members, who will also act as discussants.
