Call for Papers: Nationalism, Citizenship, and Identity

World History Association of Texas 2022 Virtual Conference

Hosted by St. Edward’s University, Austin, TX | February 19, 2022

This interdisciplinary conference on Nationalism, Citizenship, and Identity invites examinations of the emergence and development of nations and nationalism, competing understandings of citizenship, and the evolving identities that accompanied these changes. Other topics could include the affects of nationalism, citizenship, and identity on the evolution of political systems, economies, and cultures. As in the past, we also welcome papers on any topic related to World History including new research, concepts, and pedagogy. The Conference Organizing Committee invites interested grades 4-12 teachers, college and university faculty, and independent scholars to submit paper proposals on any subject, period or area of world history. Additionally, undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to submit proposals for concurrent Phi Alpha Theta-hosted panels.

Conference organizers welcome proposals that connect world history teaching and research:
•The political, social, economic, and cultural developments gave rise to and shaped nations and nationhood
•How historians have interpreted nationalism and citizenship over time
•Experiential projects to engage students in understanding the social justice issues related to nationalism, citizenship, and identities
•The role of nationalism and citizenship in teaching and understanding World History
•The affect of transnational connections on identities and/or policies
