Please note that the call for papers is now closed; we do hope you will attend the symposium. Registration for the conference is now open.
The following is here for archival purposes.
We welcome proposals for 20 minute papers from both established scholars and PGR students, in any discipline, addressing: theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of everyday nationhood / social identities, empirical studies of the phenomenon, the application of Billig’s arguments to non-national frameworks as well as critiques of the Banal Nationalism thesis.
Please send a 250-300 words proposal to Michael Skey (email@example.com) by Friday 13th June 2014.
Those applying can expect written confirmation by Friday 4th July 2014. It is anticipated that a selection of papers relating to the symposium will form part of a special edition of a peer-reviewed scholarly journal.
The cost of attending the symposium, which will cover lunch and refreshments on the day, will be £15.
