EuropeNow, the online journal of the Council of European Studies, invites contributions for its February issue on "Nationalism, Nativism, and the Revolt against Globalization." Responding to this summer's attacks on Charlottesville and the University of Virginia, we are especially interested in essays that address transnational and international connections between nativist movements. Potential topics include: 


- the rise of far-right parties in Europe East and West;

- nationalism and religion: anti-secularism, "Christian Europe," Islamophobia, anti-Semitism;

- nationalism and gender: role of women, visions for women, rhetoric of rape;

- conceptions of race: constructing whiteness, constructing Europeanness;

- aesthetics of nationalism: myths, symbols, iconography;

- is this new? Ruptures and continuities with the twentieth century;

- entanglements between democracy, populism, and fascism;

- illiberalism and the erosion of democracy;

- nationalism and the EU: Euroscepticism, separatism, the migrant crisis;

- notions of home and belonging;

- the economics of anti-globalism.


You are also welcome to propose a topic not on this list. Proposals for submissions should be no more 300 words in length and should be sent to the editors no later than Friday, December 22, 2017. If your proposal is selected, final submissions of 2,500-3,000 words will be due on January 15, 2018.
