ARENA, a new international organization, invites proposals for a symposium focusing on nationalism and national identity in the Americas. Our symposium will be open to a wide range of subjects and methodologies involving all nations of the Americas, but we are especially interested in comparative, transnational approaches to subjects of particular relevance to the formation of nations in the Americas:
The Americas and the trans-Atlantic exchange of ideas and models
Independence and liberation movements
Nation-building and state construction: integration, unification, ethnic autonomy, and secession
Nationalism and national identity in multi-ethnic immigrant nations
Nationalism as a plural and contested identity
The American nations of the New Millennium: plurality, sexual diversity, multiculturalism, democracy and recognition
Deadline: February 21, 2005 (preliminary round).
Final Deadline: September 15, 2005.
Send proposals of 500 words (English, Spanish, Portuguese, or French) and a curriculum vitae to: ARENA@sc.edu
