23rd Annual ASEN Conference - Nationalism and Revolution

Poster for the ASEN 2013 conference

Registration is open for the Conference.|

The final programme is now available.|

The twenty-third annual ASEN Conference, on Nationalism and Revolution, will take place at the LSE on the 9th, 10th and 11th of April 2013, with the Gellner Lecture on the evening of the 8th April.

The study of revolution has most often focused on issues of production, class conflict and state control. More recently, it has come to include cultural and psychological aspects such as the Romantic revolt against tradition and the role of the intelligentsia and secular education. It has also been enriched by “social movement” approaches of the kind associated with Charles Tilly which look at “repertoires” of collective action. However, apart from the nationalist dimension of particular revolutions, the linkages between revolution and nationalism have received far less attention, and the two fields have rarely been brought together. It is this divide that this ASEN Conference aims to bridge.

From theoretical suppositions and linkages to historical dimensions and examples to contemporary manifestations, this three day conference will engage participants with important questions on the connections and contradictions between nationalism and revolution.

Keynote speakers include

  • Dr. Charles King (Georgetown University)
  • Dr. Krishan Kumar (University of Virginia)
  • Dr. John Lonsdale (University of Cambridge)
  • Dr. Karma Nabulsi (University of Oxford)
  • Dr. Arthur Walrdon (University of Pennsylvania)
  • Dr. Sami Zubaida (Birkbeck, University of London)

The Call for Papers has now closed.

Registration is now open.
