ASN's importance as a venue for the discussion of policy-centered
and historical-cultural issues of the former Soviet bloc has
been increasing yearly. The ASN Convention, the most attended
international and inter-disciplinary scholarly gathering of its
kind, welcomes proposals on a wide range of topics related to
national identity, nationalism, ethnic conflict and state-building
in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Central
Asia, and adjacent areas.
Disciplines represented include political science, history, anthropology,
sociology, economics, geography, sociolinguistics, and related
disciplines. The Convention invites proposals for individual
papers or for complete panels. Deadline November 12.
As in the past, the 2004 Convention is inviting submissions for
documentaries or feature films made within the past year and
available in video (VHS or DVD) format. The videos selected for
the convention will be screened during regular panel slots and
will be followed by a discussion moderated by an academic expert.
