*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.

Contributions are invited for a volume focusing on these issues to be
published by MESEA, following a symposium organized in September 2005 in
Istanbul. The articles should be 5000 to 7000 words in length and follow
the MLA style of documentation. Please send abstracts of 100-200 words
by 1 October 2006. Complete essays are due 31 January 2007.
