Call for Papers - Nations in Cyberspace

Nationalism Studies Program was established by Central European University with the aim of engaging students in an empirical and theoretical study of issues of nationalism, self-determination, problems of state-formation, ethnic conflict, minority protection and the related theme of globalization. Drawing upon the uniquely supranational milieu of Central European University, the program encourages a critical and non-sectarian study of nationalism.

Students are encouraged to engage in an interdisciplinary study of nationalism, a subject that is inherently and fundamentally interdisciplinary. For this reason, the international teaching staff has been assembled to represent a wide range of disciplinary expertise relevant to the study of nationalism including history, social theory, economics, legal studies, sociology, anthropology, international relations and political science. The program offers a wide selection of courses that provide a complex theoretical grounding in problems associated with nationhood and nationalism combined with advanced training in the methodology of applied social science. Additional courses focus on placing problems of nationalism in the context of economic and political transition as well as constitution-building in post-1989 Central and Eastern Europe, with a comparative outlook on regime transitions outside the region.

About the Program

Central European University’s Nationalism Studies Program is soliciting papers for a conference entitled “Nations in Cyberspace” to be held in Budapest. This conference aims to begin a conversation about systemizing scholarly approaches to cyberspace as a de-territorialized site where national narratives are constructed and reproduced. An emphasis will be placed on devising methodological best practices for researching and analyzing nationhood on the internet.

Through digital media and distance-eclipsing technologies, memes and messaging apps, nationalism has taken on new life online. “Nations in Cyberspace” will gather scholars and graduate-level students to discuss how nationalist mobilization, transnational engagement and national identification is impacted by social media and other online forums.Framed by a keynote address from Robert A. Saunders (Ethnopolitics in Cyberspace: The Internet, Minority Nationalism, and the Web of Identity, 2010), the conference will tackle qualitative and quantitative methods for studying nationalism in cyberspace, the internet and diasporic or long-distance nationalism, neo-nationalist mobilization online, nation-states and the manufacture of cyber-nationalism, internet popular culture and banal nationalism, and related themes.

Application

Central European University’s Nationalism Studies Program invites scholars and students from the humanities and social sciences to submit 300-word paper abstracts and short biographies. Applicant should also fill out the Conference Form.
