“Transcultural Perspectives on Nationalism and Ethnicity in the Twentieth Century.”
Symposium at the University of Heidelberg, February 26-27, 2010.
Sponsored by the Transcultural Studies Program at the University of Heidelberg.
The University of Heidelberg, in collaboration with Iowa State University, will hold a two-day symposium exploring the concepts of ethnicity and nationalism within a transcultural, comparative framework. Scholars from a variety of universities in the United States and Europe (Iowa State University, University of Arizona, University of Heidelberg, University of Aberdeen, University of Mainz) will present papers on the themes of culture, ethnicity, and notions of nationalism. The participants will address the global dimensions of these symposium themes, focusing specifically on the African diaspora, the United States and Latin American, Europe, and Asia.
