CFP: De/Construction of Ethnicity and Nationhood in the Age of Globalization (10/1/06; collection)

*Call for contributions*

*De/Construction of Ethnicity and Nationhood in the Age of Globalization*

The age of globalization has witnessed a redefinition of ethnicity as
well as the (re)emergence of nationhood, while at the same time
witnessing the deconstruction of both. Bi-, multi- and poly-cultural
societies more than ever have to confront issues generated from such
efforts, which aim at shaping and reshaping identities. While current
political developments exacerbate such phenomena, pacts of forgetting
and other silent alliances that had been established during the Cold War
as well as post- and neo-colonial paradigms are now being interrogated
and challenged.
