Call for Chapter Proposals: Edited Volume on Transnationalizing the Study of Nationalism and Ethnicity
"Crossing Boundaries: Transnationalizing the Study of Nation and Ethnicity in the Twentieth Century World"
This volume explores the role of the transnational processes of exchange, adoption, and adaptation in the emergence of national and ethnic identities in the twentieth century. Even though scholars have long stressed the inherently ethnic character of nationalism, the role of transnational and transcultural dynamics in the creation of national and ethnic “imagined communities” still awaits a thorough analysis.
This edited volume will help us better understand the global dimensions of nationalism by specifically examining nationalism through the lens of transnationalism, transculturality, and ethnicity. We are interested in chapter proposals that can explore those themes - from all regional and disciplinary specializations - but particularly proposals examining Africa and the African diaspora and Latin America (including North and South America and the Caribbean). Scholars whose work utilizes a transnational and/or transcultural approach to shed fresh light on the role of transnational dynamics in the emergence of national and ethnic identities across the world are strongly encouraged to submit proposals.
Please send a 500-word proposal along with a short CV to Brian Behnken
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Simon Wendt (email@example.com). Feel free to contact us for additional information on essay length, style, deadlines, and other info.
