H-Nationalism has been a leading online forum for the study of nationalism since its founding in 2006. H-Nationalism serves as a focal point for informed, moderated discussion and produces diverse academic content including book reviews, interviews, blog series, and bibliographies. Our all-volunteer editorial staff hails from across the globe and includes scholars of all ranks. CfPs, discussion posts, and research queries are available immediately below. More content is available on our Reviews and Resources pages. Scholars of all disciplinary, methodological, and topical backgrounds are welcome to set up a free subscription and to inquire about serving as an editor with H-Nationalism. You can read more about our staff here and look into volunteering with us here. We also welcome proposals for projects and partnerships. Guidelines for contributing to our scholarly group blog, Vistas, are here.
