All Day

Clement House, London School of Economics

The ASEN Annual Conference is a 2/3 day programme of events, held each spring at the London School of Economics, which brings together leading academics, researchers and policy-makers from around the world to discuss some of the major challenges and issues in the field of ethnicity and nationalism.

This two day conference, ASENs 27th, commemorates and critically assesses the significance of the legacy of Anthony D. Smith, a foundational figure in the field of nationalism. It is an opportunity to consider where the field of nationalism stands today, the place of Smith within it, and the continuing relevance of Smiths ethnosymbolic framework in analysing the formation of nations and nationalism.

Further information about the key themes and topics that will be covered during the course of the conference can be found on the call for papers. Please note that the deadline for abstract submissions is 13 November 2016.

Further information about the plenary lectures will be announced here throughout that autumn.
