Although the emerging post Cold War globalization process seemed to undermine the legitimacy of national categories, nationalisms and national identities are far from being surpassed. This is part of a broader public concern regarding the interactions between national identities, cultures, and transnational relations in a new global order. Similarly, History of Science, STS, and Policy Studies have expanded new questions about the means and mechanisms that produce, transfer, and transform expert knowledge within communities and political systems at different scales.

GLOBAL DECOLONIZATION WORKSHOP III*
There is growing consensus that historical reenactment embraces a wide range of forms – including live action role play, living history, historical reality TV and film, gaming, performance art, theater, historically-informed music performance, experimental archeology, pilgrimage, and battle reenactment. Reenactment practices and forms share a concern with authenticity, embodiment, affect, the performative and subjective. It might be argued that reenactment exemplifies a transnational form of popular historical knowledge making, representation and commemoration.

2nd Global Conference: Music &....Nationalism
29th to 30th June 2018
The spectre of national anthems being sung at mass events, political rallies and the use of pop music and established musicians providing endorsements at political rallies suggest that the relationship between music and the spirit nationalism is as strong as it has been since its emergence as a feature of 19th century romantic music. This conference aims to bring together interdisciplinary research perspectives on the relationship between music and nationalism.
