Call for Papers: Secession as an International Phenomenon

Conference on Secession as an International Phenomenon
Charleston, S.C., December, 6, 7, 8, 2007
Deadline for Proposals: January 1, 2007
ARENA (Association for Research on Ethnicity and Nationalism in the Americas), a new international organization whose mission is to broaden and enliven the conversation on nationalism, is sponsoring an international conference and book of essays on one of the most volatile forces of modern history. We will meet where modern secession began, in the heart of historic Charleston, for two and a half days of public addresses, research presentations, and lively discussion.
Open to all disciplines and to studies of separatism in all parts of the world, the conference is designed to encourage conversation and exchange particularly among scholars in history, politics, philosophy, sociology, and law. We invite papers that deal with historic or contemporary separatist movements and their opposition, or with theoretical approaches.
