"Nationalism Fatigue?"
June 11, 2009

Academic workshop on

Nationalism Fatigue? New Approaches to the History of Society, Memory and Public Sphere in Eastern and Central Europe

- Are nationalism studies still a promising and burgeoning field of research? How has the field developed over the last 10 years? Do we look at nationalism differently today?

- Can one study Eastern and Central European modern society without having to refer to nationalism? Did nationalism really matter so much?

- What are the alternatives to the nationally-confined research frameworks and narratives (local, regional, imperial)? Nationalisms, pan-nationalisms (e.g., pan-Slavism) and regionalisms
