Nationalities Papers is the leading journal on nationalism, ethnicity, ethnic conflict and national identity in Central Europe, the Balkans, the former Soviet Union, the Caucasus, the Turkic world and Central Eurasia. Furthermore, the journal also publishes contributions on theories of nationalism, comparative studies of nationalism, and trans- and supranational aspects of interethnic relations and national identity. The journal publishes timely, high quality articles from a variety of disciplines, including history, political science, sociology, anthropology, and literature.
In 2009, Nationalities Papers has moved to six issues per year. Under the leadership of a new editorial team, the journal has received a visual re-design in 2010 and has launched a number of exciting new features, such as book symposiums, state of the art articles and debates, and special sections. In this context Nationalities Papers is soliciting submissions from broad disciplinary and regional ranges. As part of these changes, we are looking for innovative contributions in the field, both in terms of new and ground-breaking research and theoretical articles. Being a journal with an international editorial team and a global readership, we are open to contributions from around the world.
Nationalities Papers is the journal of the Association for the Study of Nationalities (ASN), bringing together scholars worldwide working on nationalism and ethnicity, Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans and Eurasia. For information on ASN and on its Annual World Convention, please go to the ASN convention page.
