It is my pleasure to put to you, our community of scholars, H-Nationalism’s inaugural ‘Question of the Month’. For our first post, we are examining the field itself and asking:
What are the most important emerging research trends in the study of nations and nationalism? How do these trends promise to shape the field?
We look forward to reading your responses, and we welcome feedback as we seek to grow this new segment!
