Conference for MA students in Nationalism Studies

December 11, 2023

Nations and Nationalisms: Theories, Practices and Methods 2.0

International Postgraduate Conference

5-6 June 2024

The Loughborough University Nationalism Network (LUNN), together with Nationalism Studies at Edinburgh University, the Nationalism Studies Program at the Central European University and with the sponsorship of the Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism Studies (ASEN), are organising the second edition of an international conference dedicated exclusively to postgraduate researchers (Master and PhD students) interested in nations and nationalism studies.

The conference, unique in its format, aims to provide a forum for students to discuss ideas, theories and methods related to their common research focus on nations and nationalisms. The conference will allow students to share their research projects among a multi-disciplinary audience as a way to encourage and generate intellectual exchange and cross-fertilization of ideas.

We invite abstract submissions from postgraduate students belonging to different disciplines, including but not limited to Geography, Sociology, Psychology, History, Politics, Communication and Media, Arts, and Literary Studies. 

The two-day conference will see postgraduate students presenting their work in sessions chaired by students themselves. LUNN faculty members will also offer bespoken workshops related to broad research themes, which will offer additional opportunities for post-graduate students to discuss their projects.

We are very grateful to Professor Michael Billig (Loughborough University) and to Dr Eleanor Knott (London School of Economics) who will offer two keynotes specifically aimed at our postgraduate audience.
