It is hard to believe that we launched our Question of the Month series a year ago. A lot has happened in the last twelve months, and we have had some great discussions that have dmeonstrated the health and relevance of our field. We started our series off last May with a question about the general trends and trajectories in the field of nationalism studies, and it seems pertinent to ask the same question again as a way of gauging the ways in which our field has evolved and changed in the last year. With that in mind we once again ask:
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 your insights on the current state of the field. Use this as an opportunity to offer your thoughts on current trends, future research, potential avenues for interdisciplinary work and any thoughts on nationalism studies more broadly.
