    Press release

    ASN 2007 World Convention Preliminary Program Announced

    110 panels, more than 340 papers on the Balkans, Central Europe, Russia, Ukraine, the Caucasus, Eurasia, Turkey, China, and nationalism studies

    The preliminary program of the ASN 2007 World Convention can now be downloaded at ASN 2007 Prelim Program (PDF). The Convention, sponsored by the Harriman Institute, will be held at Columbia University, New York, April 12-14, 2007.

    Those interested in attending the convention are invited to register in advance by accessing the online registration form and sending it to Convention Assistant Director Tennie Olney by e-mail attachment (mlo2109@columbia.edu) or by postal mail at Harriman Institute, Columbia University, 420 W 118th St., New York, NY 10027, United States (tel. 212 854 8487). Only registration with payment will be accepted.

    The program features 110 panels, not yet including up to ten film screenings to be announced later. As usual, the Convention boasts the most international lineup of panelists of North American-based conventions, with more than half of the 352 scholars, from 40 countries, who will be delivering papers (57 percent the highest proportion ever) currently based outside of the United States. More than 700 panelists and participants are expected at the convention, a record number.

    The Convention will be hosting nine special panels featuring new major books by David Laitin (Nations, States, and Violence, Oxford 2007), Rogers Brubaker, Jon Fox, Margit Feischmidt, and Liana Grancea (Nationalist Politics and Everyday Ethnicity in a Transylvanian Town, Princeton 2006), Stathis Kalyvas (The Logic of Violence in Civil Wars, Cambridge 2006), Aviel Roshwald (The Endurance of Nationalism: Ancient Roots and Modern Dilemmas, Cambridge 2006), Daniel Chirot and Clark McCauley (Why Not Kill Them All?, Princeton 2006) and Jacques Smelin (Purify and Destroy, Columbia 2007), Nicholas Riasanovsky, (Russian Identities: A Historical Survey, Oxford 2005), Geoffrey Hosking (Rulers and Victims: The Russians in the Soviet Union, Harvard 2006), David Ost (The Defeat of Solidarity: Anger and Politics in Postcommunist Europe, Cornell 2005), and Alex Cooley (Logic of Hierarchy: The Organization of Empires, States, and Military Occupations, Cornell 2005).

    Several of these book panels are part of the section Theories of Nationalism, now in its fourth year at the ASN Convention, which offers a platform for the latest trends in nationalism studies worldwide. Nine more panels appear in the Nationalism section, such as Nationalism, Rights, and the Rule of Law,Nationalist Violence, and Third-Party Involvement in Ethnic Conflicts.

    As always, the Convention offers a strong lineup of panels in all regions of the former Communist world and Eurasia: Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia/Turkey/China, the Balkans, Ukraine and Central Europe. Every year, the Program Committee has to be more selective in devising the lineup, due to the increasing number of proposals. The Balkans lead the way with 20 panels, followed by Russia and the Caucasus with a combined 18 panels, Eurasia and Turkey a combined 14, Ukraine and Belarus14, and Eurasia/Central Asia11. Thirteen panels appear in the Thematic section. Three panels on Oil Politics, a commemorative panel on Anna Politkovskaya, a special panel on The Scholar as a Nation-Builder, roundtables on the recent Antidiscrimination Law in Serbia, Scholarship in Post-Communist States, and Empire as Metaphor, four panels on Habsburg history, a panel on Democracy Promotion in Europe and Eurasia, and a panel on Identity and Film are among the highlights of the program.

    The Convention will also feature a film lineup, which will be announced later.

    Since 2005, the ASN Convention is acknowledging excellence in graduate studies research by offering Awards for Best Doctoral Papers in five sections: Russia/Ukraine/Caucasus, Central Asia/Eurasia, Central Europe, Balkans, and Nationalism Studies. The winners at the 2006 Convention were Kelly O'Neill (Harvard U, History, Russia/Ukraine/Caucasus), Yuriy Malikov (U of California, Santa Barbara, History, Central Asia/Eurasia), Tamara Pavasovic (Harvard U, Sociology, Balkans), and Andrew Demshuk (U of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, History, Central Europe). The awardees in 2005 were Lisa Koriouchkina (Brown U, Anthropology, Russia/Ukraine/Caucasus), Evangelos Liaras (MIT, Political Science, Central Asia/Eurasia), Shannon Woodcock (U of Tirana, Anthropology, Central Europe), Jessica Greenberg (U of Chicago, Anthropology, Balkans), and Bijita Majumdar (Rutgers U, Sociology, Nationalism Studies). Nearly a hundred doctoral students will be eligible for awards at the 2007 Convention.

    For practical information regarding the convention, please contact Gordon Bardos (gnb12@columbia.edu, 212.854.8487). For information on panels, please contact Dominique Arel (darel@uottawa.ca) or Sherrill Stroschein (s.stroschein@ucl.ac.uk).

    We look forward to seeing you at the convention!
