Read the new Nationalities Blog at http://nationalities.wordpress.org. Understanding the continuing relevance of nationalism is crucial not just for scholars of particular countries, but also for those who seek to understand broader trends and regional dynamics. This blog seeks to provide timely commentary and analysis on events and trends in this field. Contributors are primarily scholars and analysts associated with the Association for the Study of Nationalities. But the blog editors also encourage debate by the wider community of scholars interested in nationalism and ethnic conflict.
