19th Annual ASEN Conference:
"Nationalism and Globalisation"
31st March - 2nd April 2009, London School of Economics


The Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN) is 
holding its 19th Annual Conference, entitled "Nationalism and 
Globalisation", Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 31st March - 2nd April 
2009, at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Nationalism and globalisation are complex phenomena generating vigorous 
academic debates. Yet, there has been little sustained theoretical and 
empirical consideration of their relationship, and no framework devised 
capable of satisfactorily dealing with the interactions between the two, 
especially as these change over time and vary from place to place. Yet 
nationalism has both shaped, and been shaped byglobalization. This 
conference seeks to explore the relationship between nationalism and 
globalisation in its various forms, primarily focusing on the impact of 
globalisation on national identity, national sovereignty,
state-formation, and the ways in which nationalism has shaped
globalising processes.

The conference will include keynote addresses from leading scholars in
the field, along with opportunities for scholars from various
disciplines to examine the relationship between nationalism and
globalisation in a series of panel sessions. Suggested themes include:

Conflicting or complementary phenomena?

Nationalism and global political conflict

Global migration patterns and national identities

Globalisation and the emergence of new forms of nationalism

The impact of globalisation on national culture

Nationalism versus supranationalism


The first day will explore the theoretical and historical relationship 
between globalisation, nationalism and national identities.The second
day will examine current issues such as migration, arms proliferation,
financial crisis, multinational corporations and global consumer culture
and their impact on the nation-state and national identities. The third
day will focus on the interaction between globalisation and novel forms
of nationalism and regional identities as well as nationalist responses
to supranationalism, including European integration. The conference will
adopt a multi-disciplinary approach focusing on historical, theoretical
and contemporary aspects of the theme.

The 2009 Conference Committee is now calling for papers to be presented
at the conference.  The application is open to any researcher who is
interested in the study of nationalism.  The abstracts of the proposed
papers should not exceed 500 words and are expected by November 1st,
2008.  Abstracts should make clear (a) the particular focus of the paper
in terms of evidence and method, (b) its discipline location, (c) its
relevance to the nationalism/globalisation topic, and (d) what specific
theme/panel it would best fit into. Only abstracts directly related to
nationalism will be considered. The Committee will notify applicants of
its decisions by November 30th, 2008. Please see the ASEN website
(www.lse.ac.uk/collections/ASEN/) for more information and to submit
your proposal.

Suggestions for panels and additional themes are also welcome.  Papers
submitted to the conference will be considered for publication in a
special issue of Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN). Please note
that ASEN cannot cover travel and accommodation costs. Presenters are
expected to register for the conference. Further enquiries are welcome
