6th Annual Convention of the Association for the Study of Nationalities
(ASN)

Columbia University, 5-7 April 2001
PRELIMINARY PROGRAM NOW ON THE WEB

The full preliminary program of the ASN Sixth Annual World
Convention, the world's foremost gathering on nationalism and
identity in the former Communist world, is now available on the ASN
web site: http://asn.uno.edu. [Visitors to our web site must simply
follow the link from the homepage to ANNUAL CONVENTION, then 2001
Conference]. The Convention will feature 108 panels, spread over
eleven sessions from Thursday April 5, 1 PM, to Saturday April 7, in
the evening. More than 500 people will be on panels.

All post-Soviet areas will be covered in tremendous depth, with
sixteen panels on the  Balkans, fifteen on Central Europe (including
the Baltics), fourteen on Central Asia (including Turkey, China, and
Mongolia), thirteen on the Russian Federation, eleven on Ukraine, six
on the South Caucasus, and two dozens on thematic and cross-regional
themes. Special roundtables will include "The Future of Peacekeeping
Operations," organized by David Laitin;  "Russia and the Western
Media," featuring Stephen F. Cohen; "The Gongadze Case and
Kuchmagate," Ukraine's ongoing political scandal; "The Second Chechen
War," on French reporter Anne Nivat's book Chienne de guerre; "The
Collapse of Yugoslavia," with Susan Woodward; and "Democracy and
National Identity," with Jack Snyder.

Eleven recent documentaries and feature films, exploring
ethnonational and identity issues in the post-Communist world, will
also be shown at the convention, including A TRIAL IN PRAGUE, on
Czechoslovakia's postwar Slansky Trial, by New York director Zuzana
Justman, The full list of films will be announced shortly. Each film
will be followed by discussion.

Non-region specific panels at the convention will include:
Nationality and Language in the New Post-Soviet Censuses (two panels)
Borders and Security (two panels)
The Political Economy of Civil Wars
Liberalism and Nationalism
Secession in Comparative Perspective
Ethnic Cleansing in the Twentieth Century
International Migration and Nation-Building
NATO/EU Expansion
Resolving Self-Determination Conflicts Through Complex Power Sharing
The Challenge of Ethnic Conciliation

The convention is consolidating its status as the World Annual Event
on Nationalities Studies. As in the past, over one hundred and fifty
panelists will be travelling from overseas for the event (plus an
additional three dozens from Canada). Almost 40 percent of
paper-givers are international participants (and this does not
include the large amount of non-US born participants currently
residing in the United States).

A growing number of research institutions are sponsoring panels at
the convention. In addition to the Harriman Institute, which is
hosting the convention, and the Watson Institute (Brown U), which is
co-sponsoring, the list includes the European Center for Minority
Issues (Germany); the European Academy Bolzano (Italy); the European
Balkan Network (U of Bologna, Italy); the Council on Foreign
Relations; the Open Society Institute; the International Peace
Academy; the Carnegie Council on Ethics and International Affairs;
the Institute for the Study of Conflict, Ideology, and Policy;
Freedom House, and the Shevchenko Scientific Society. The French
Institute of Political Studies, which is organizing the ASN
co-sponsored conference "Nationality and Citizenship in
Post-Communist Europe" on 9-10 July 2001 in Paris, will also have a
strong presence at the convention.

LOCATION. The convention will be taking place in the International
Affairs Building (IAB) of Columbia University, 420 W. 118th St.
(metro station: 116th St., on the Red Line). Registration will be on
the 15th Floor of IAB and the panels will be held on several floors.

REGISTRATION. $40 for ASN Members, $60 for Non-Members ($30 for
Non-Members residing in Eastern Europe at the time of the convention)
and $25 for Students. Preregistration payments are non-refundable
after 1 March 2001.
A registration form can be downloaded from the ASN web site
(http://asn.uno.edu) or requested from Lara Nettelfield
([log in to unmask]). People who plan to attend the convention are
strongly encouraged to pre-register, since places are limited.

SCHEDULE. Registration will begin at 11 AM, Thursday April 5, on the
15th Floor of IAB. People who sent preregistered will need to pick up
their name tag and the convention program. On the Thursday, the
panels will run from 1 PM-7.30 PM. On Friday and Saturday, from 9 AM
to 6.30 PM. The convention will end on the Saturday evening, April 7.

ACCOMMODATION. The convention does not have arrangements with a
particular hotel. A list of nearby hotels can be found on the ASN web
site.

ASN MEMBERSHIP. People can now directly join a fast growing ASN on
the convention pre-registration form. In addition to getting a
significant discount at the ASN convention, ASN members receive
annually four issues of Nationalities Papers, the field's leading
journal; four issues of the Analysis of Current Events, containing
up-to-the-minute analyses of ongoing events; and two issues of
ASNews, the association's newsletter. An annual membership costs a
remarkably low $50 annually-$30 for students.

BONUS FOR ASN MEMBERS. ASN members have also the option of
subscribing to Europe-Asia Studies (formerly Soviet Studies), which
publishes eight issues a year, for $55, almost a hundred dollars less
than the regular subscription price. Convention panelists can take
advantage of this offer directly on the convention registration form.

BOOK EXHIBIT/SALE OF PAPERS. Publishers will exhibit their wares in
the exhibit room, located in the spacious Dag Hammarskjold Lounge on
the 6th floor. Convention papers will also go on sale for $1.50
apiece. At least 20 copies of each paper will go on sale in the book
exhibit on Friday, April 14, at 11.15 AM.

We look forward to seeing you at the convention!
