New volume of ‘Studies on National Movements’ launched!
The volume is centred around a NISE conference that was held in Prague in 2016, titled ‘Protagonists of national movements’.
That conference took its cue from Miroslav Hroch’s remark that the notion of Vorkämpferor, ‘protagonists’, so saliently foregrounded in his comparative work on national movements, had not in itself given rise to sustained reflection and theorization. Who, indeed, are these Vorkämpfer? Do they belong to the elite, to the popular masses, and what is their power to mobilize their movements?
It is hoped that the present volume of reflections will stimulate the research community towards a more probing analysis into this exciting new field in nationalism studies.
Articles included in this volume:
- Asychronicity of National Movements.
- From Elite Pamphleteers to Social Movement Protagonists: Antisemitic Activism in 1920s Romania.
- Mobilization in crisis – demobilization in peace: protagonists of competing national movements in border regions.
- Emotional and Social Ties in the Construction of Nationalism: A Group Biographical Approach to the Tengström Family in nineteenth-century Finland.
