>
>The Fondation Nationale des Sciences Politiques is organizing an
>international conference devoted to the issue of identity - national,
>political, cultural, local, or supra-national - in the post-communist
>world. The conference aims at bringing together scholars from academic
>disciplines such as political science, history, demography,
>anthropology, economics, sociology, and sociolinguistics. It is
>co-sponsored by the Association for the Study of Nationalities (ASN),
>whose annual convention in New York has established itself as the
>leading academic gathering in the field of nationalism studies.
>
>The construction and reconstruction of nations and states raises
>questions related to identity at various levels: regional (for
>instance, the Russian Republic), macro-regional (European, Eurasian),
>micro-regional, transnational (especially religious), cross-border
>(national minorities linked to a state other than the one in which
>they live), or inter-regional (for instance, Visegrad). The identities
>of networks (diaspora, economic or virtual networks) and social groups
>also create new affiliations, non-territorial affiliations produced by
>links which reconstruct the social, cultural, and political space. In
>this perspective, the conference aims at providing a forum of
>discussion on the emerging identities of the post-communist space
>(nationalist, ethnic, civic, regional, European/cosmopolitan), how
>these new identities relate to older ones (tribal or religious
>identities), and how they are challenged by a Europe in the process of
>(re-) formation.
>
>The conference will feature twenty to twenty-five panels and is
>requesting paper proposals on any of the following ten themes:
>
>* Changing Notions of Citizenship and Nationality
>* The Use of Language and Ethnic (Nationality) Categories in Censuses
>* Mobilization, Conflict and Secessionism in the Caucasus
>* Islam and Politics in Central Asia
>* Threats of Regional Disintegration in Russia
>* Identity Claims and Economic Development
>* Central European Reactions to the Expansion of the European Union
>* NATO Expansion and Its Consequences in Eastern Europe and Russia
>* Rebuilding the Balkans
>* Diaspora and Transnational Politics
>
>Panel proposals are also invited on topics congruent with the general
>theme of the conference. All proposals should include the full
>coordinates of each applicant, a 200-500 word abstract of each paper,
>as well as a one-paragraph curriculum vitae. Email applications are
>recommended.
>
>The conference will be in a position to fund the travel and
>accommodation of at least twenty scholars from the former Communist
>bloc. Eligible scholars have to be citizens of one of the successor
>states of the former Communist bloc and reside in a country of the
>former Communist bloc at the time of the conference.
