New York convention of the ASN

Dr. Sherrill Stroschein’s research hat included co-chairing the annual conference of the Association for the Study of Nationalities (ASN) in New York.

The conference included 660 registered attendees from 42 countries – including also Dr. Kristin Bakke. The yearly conference brings together academics, graduate students, policymakers, and members of the NGO community for discussions on identity, nationalism, and politics. A film lineup is also part of the events.

While the conference originally focused on the regions of Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union, it has been expanding in recent years to include other regional areas relevant to these discussions. This year was the 40th Anniversary of the ASN – further information on the association appears at: www.nationalities.org.
