100 panels on the Balkans, the Baltics, Central Europe, Russia, Ukraine,
Belaruso, Moldova, the Caucasus, Central Asia, Turkey, Greece, Afghanistan,
Pakistan, Kurdistan, China, and Mongolia

**INCLUDING a Special Section on
Theoretical Approaches to Nationalism**

AS WELL AS thematic panels on
Islamic Movements, Genocide and Ethnic Violence, Anthropology of Identity,
Citizenship and Nationality, Conflict Resolution, Demography, and EU
Expansion

AND the screening and discussion
of new ** Films/Documentaries**

The no Convention, the most attended international and inter-disciplinary
scholarly gathering of its kind, welcomes proposals on a wide range of
topics related to national identity, nationalism, ethnic conflict,
state-building and the study of empires in Central/Eastern Europe, the
former Soviet Union, Eurasia, and adjacent areas. Disciplines represented
include political science, history, anthropology, sociology, economics,
geography, socio-linguistics, and related fields.

For the second consecutive year, the 2005 Convention will feature a new
section devoted to theoretical approaches to nationalism, from any of the
disciplines listed above. The papers in this section do not necessarily have
to be grounded in an area of the former Communist bloc usually covered by
ASN, provided that the issues examined are relevant to a truly comparative
understanding of nationalism-related issues. In this vein, we are welcoming
theory-focused and comparative proposals, rather than specific case studies
from outside Central/Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

The 2005 Convention is also inviting submissions for documentaries or
feature films made within the past year and available in VHS or DVDno format.
Most videos selected for the convention will be screened during regular
panel slots and will be followed by a discussion moderated by an academic
expert.

The 2005 Convention invites proposals for INDIVIDUAL PAPERS or PANELS. A
panel includes a chair, three presentations based on written papers, and a
discussant. Proposals using an INNOVATIVE format are also particularly
encouraged. Examples of new formats include a roundtable on a new book,
where the author is being engaged by three discussants; a debate between two
panelists over a critical research or policy question, following rules of
public debating; or special presentations based on original papers where the
number of discussants is equal or greater than the number of presenters.

The 2005 Convention is also welcoming offers to serve as DISCUSSANT on a
panel to be created by the program committee from individual paper
proposals. The application to be considered as discussant can be
self-standing, or accompanied by an individual paper proposal.

There is NO APPLICATION FORM to fill out in order to send proposals to the
convention. All proposals must sent by email to Dominique Arelo at
darel@uottawa.ca. INDIVIDUAL PAPER PROPOSALS must include the name and
affiliation of the author, the title of the paper, a 500 word abstract and a
100 word biographical statement. PANEL PROPOSALS must include the title of
the panel; a chair, three paper-givers, and a discussant; and the name,
affiliation and 100 word biographical statement of each participant.
PROPOSALS USING AN INNOVATIVE FORMAT must include the title of the panel;
the names, affiliations, and a 100 word biographical statements of each
participant and a discussion on the proposed format. INDIVIDUAL PROPOSALS TO
SERVE AS DISCUSSANT must include the name, affiliation, and areas of
expertise of the applicant and a 100 word biographical statement.

All proposals must be included IN THE BODY OF A SINGLE EMAIL. Attachments
will be accepted only if they repeat the content of an email
message/proposal, and if all the information is contained IN A SINGLE
ATTACHMENT.

Participants are responsible for covering all travel and accommodation
costs. ASN has no funding available for panelists.

An international Program Committee will be entrusted with the selection of
proposals. Applicants will be notified in December 2004 or early January
2005. Information regarding registration costs and other logistical
questions will be communicated afterwards.

and thematic sections, the video screenings, and the new section on Theories
of Nationalism, can be accessed at

advertisers and exhibitors are encouraged to place their order early. For
