About Nationalism Studies Program
The Nationalism Studies Program was established at Central European
University by the late Ernst Gellner with the goal of promoting the
study of nationalism in the post-communist countries of Central and
Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The aim of the program is
to engage students in an empirical and theoretical study of issues of
nationalism, self-determination, problems of state-formation, ethnic
conflict, minority protection and the related theme of globalization.
Drawing upon the uniquely supranational milieu of Central European
University, it encourages a critical and non-sectarian study of
Students are encouraged to engage in an interdisciplinary study of
nationalism, a subject that is inherently and fundamentally
interdisciplinary. For this reason, the international teaching staff has
been assembled to represent a wide range of disciplinary expertise
relevant to the study of nationalism including history, social theory,
economics, legal studies, sociology, anthropology, international
relations and political science. The program offers a wide selection of
courses that provide a complex theoretical grounding in problems
associated with nationhood and nationalism combined with advanced
training in the methodology of applied social science. Additional
courses focus on placing problems of nationalism in the context of
economic and political transition as well as constitution building in
post-1989 Central and Eastern Europe with a comparative outlook on
regime transitions outside the region.
The faculty of the Nationalism Studies Program includes M└ria M.Kov└cs,
Andr└s Kov└cs, Will Kymlicka, Shlomo Avineri, Rogers Brubaker, Donald
Horowitz, Michael Stewart, Erica Benner, Walter Kemp, Selim Deringil,
Rainer BaubĂck, Tibor V└rady, Victor Kar└dy, Michael Miller, Zolt└n
MiklĐsi, Jălia Szalai and Florian Bieber.
