ASEN Summer School 2022: Nations and Nationalism in the Contemporary World

June 5 at 12:00 pm June 12 at 12:00 pm Croatia/Zadar

Applications are now open for The Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN)’s first ever summer school, on the topic of ‘Nations and Nationalism in the Contemporary World.’ 

The summer school will be from June 5-12, 2022 at the University of Zadar in Croatia.Its main aim is to explore and analyze the social dynamics of nation-states and nationalisms through time and space. More specifically the ambition is to provide answers to the following questions: 

  • Why has nationalism proved to be such a potent, protean and durable force in the modern age? 
  • Why has the nation-state established itself as the central organizing mode of social and political life in the last two hundred years? 
  • What role does globalization play in generating populist and nativist backlashes? 
  • Do contemporary populist and nativist movements differ from their 19th and 20th century counterparts? 

The course will also analyze the origins, historical transformations and inherent malleability of nationalist ideologies. 

The organizers encourage the participation of students and scholars in the social sciences, law and humanities and other fields and disciplines studying social phenomena such as divisions, cleavages, conflicts, borders, ethnicity and diversity. Graduate and postgraduate students’ presentations are also welcome. In addition, the course offers personal inter-cultural experiences of international students and faculty from other contexts in the ancient city of Zadar.
