A CONFERENCE Sponsored by
association for research on ethnicity and nationalism in the americas
ARENA, a new international organization whose mission is to broaden and enliven the conversation on nationalism, is sponsoring an international conference and book of essays on one of the most volatile forces of modern
history. We will meet where modern secession began, in the heart of historic Charleston, for two and a half days of public addresses, research presentations, and lively discussion.
Featured speakers at the Charleston conference will include: William Freehling, Allen Buchanan, Robert E. Bonner, Susan-Mary Grant, Bruno Coppieters, Margaret Moore, and Andrés Reséndez
Open to all disciplines and to studies of separatism in all parts of the world, the conference is designed to encourage conversation and exchange particularly among scholars in history, politics, philosophy, sociology, and law. We invite papers that deal with historic or contemporary separatist movements and their opposition, or with theoretical approaches.
Conference sponsors expect to have funding for travel, accommodation, and meals for those who indicate need.
Approximately 14 presenters will be invited to publish their revised papers in a book of essays and attend a workshop for the contributors in May 2008.
Proposals should be sent by e-mail to ARENA@sc.edu by February 1, 2007 (notification February, 2007) as an attached file with the following information:
