Re: Question of the Month: July

This is a particularly difficult question to answer. At first sight it appears that right-wing and populist forms of nationalism have become dominant in many parts of the world, especially among well-established democracies such as the United States, the United Kingdom and India. In addition, the appeal of right-wing nationalism (both conservative and radical) remains strong as recently proved to be the case in the Polish presidential elections and the general election in Spain.

Re: Question of the Month: Recent Trends in the Study of National Awakening in East-Central Europe

Dear Alexander,

If I can summarize the question as follows: "What's new in studies challenging the "heroic national awakening narrative" of 19th-century CEE people", what first comes into my mind are three directions.

One more general: 1) internationalization of study, contributing to a deeper understanding of cultural trends are transnational role models. Locus of this direction is the platform of the Encyclopedia of Romantic Nationalism in Europe - ernie.uva.nl, also giving a new kick to comparative studies with tools of Digital Humanities.

Question of the Month: Recent Trends in the Study of National Awakening in East-Central Europe

This post is about current trends in the study of so-called “national awakening” in East-Central Europe. It’s important to specify, perhaps, because the study of nationalism is not just a complicated problem, but a series of unrelated complicated problems going by the same name. Scholars who “work on nationalism” do not always have overlapping interests.
