Panel and Paper Accepted for ISA 2012 in San Diego

September 25, 2011

I am thrilled to report that I will be attending next year’s annual International Studies Association Conference in San Diego as a panel chair and presenter. This conference brings me full circle from my first ISA conference in San Diego in 2006, when I was doing my Master’s degree at the University of British Columbia, to what I hope will be my final year as a Ph.D. candidate at Northwestern University in Chicago.

The panel, entitled “Nationalism, International Recognition, and Domestic Legitimacy,” will will take place on the first day of the conference, Sunday, April 1, at 1:45 p.m. Participants include senior and junior scholars as well as advanced graduate students who have an interest in the place of nationalism in global and domestic politics. My paper, “Security or Identity? State and Homeland in Israeli Politics and Public Opinion” will draw on the research I have been conducting over the last year in Israel. I have included abstracts for the panel and my own paper after the jump. My colleagues’ abstracts can be viewed through the ISA conference website panel link here.

Paper Submitted for ISA 2010 in New Orleans

February 15, 2010

On Friday, I submitted my paper, “’Kosovo is Serbia’: Nation and Homeland in Contentious Territorial Politics” for this year’s International Studies Association conference in New Orleans. I will be leaving for the Big Easy this Tuesday and returning to Chicago on Sunday.

While there, I intend to take in the local scene, go to a few jazz clubs, enjoy the ambiance, and, oh yeah, present my paper. 🙂 In all seriousness, I have a number of friends and colleagues whom I am looking forward to seeing again and catching up. ISA is always a great conference and I am thrilled to be presenting for my fourth year.

You can read the abstract of the paper on my earlier post announcing my acceptance to the conference and you can download the entire paper in PDF format from the links provided by AllAcademic here.  As always, your comments, critiques, and feedback are greatly appreciated.
