University of Nancy 2 (France), CRESAB Research Group

CALL FOR PAPERS: The notion of legitimacy is essential to the study of nationalism. As Anthony D. Smith has argued, "For nationalists, the nation is the sole criterion of legitimate government and political community.

Call for Articles (Vol. 42, April 2010): The Center and the Periphery

updated: 
Wednesday, January 27, 2010 - 3:49am
National Central University Journal of Humanities

The perennial opposition between the center and the periphery is in existence from time immemorial. It defines the relationship between ancient China and the neighboring races, the motherland and her offspring, and the empire and the colony. It also underlines the connections among races, groups and describes the interaction between the majority and the minority. We can even find traces of the opposition with regard to the intellectual centrality in relation to the marginalized form of knowledge. Complex relationships of domination, subordination and reaction motivate the negotiation between the center and the periphery. A reversal may mean the periphery can become the center of power and of economy.
