National Identity and Modernity 1870-1945
(Latin America – Southern Europe – Central Eastern Europe)

- Call for Papers -


Károli Gáspár University of the Reformed Church in Hungary is organising an international conference entitled National Identity and Modernity 1870-1945 (Latin America – Southern Europe – Central Eastern Europe). The Conference will be held in Budapest (Hungary) between 5 and 7 April 2017.

The theme of the Conference encompasses certain countries of the fringe zones of history during the late modern period in the Latin American, Southern European and Central Eastern European regions including Mexico, Cuba, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Spain, Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Croatia and Hungary. The period between 1870 and 1945 exhibited decisive and complex characteristics in the formation of national identities in the above regions with respect to the issues of nationalism, ethnic diversity, modernisation of the economy, regionalism, falling behind and catching up with other countries as well as tradition and innovation.

The organisers of this international Conference welcome papers in the fields of history, social sciences, literary and cultural studies that explore and present this complex topic and the contradictions it offers in a novel way and with a view to international perspectives. The foreseen three thematic sections will provide a meeting place for the three regions above. These meeting places and the fact that English will be the working language of the Conference will present ample opportunities for participants to get to know and compare the above countries in the given time period concerning the above-described topics as well as to explore in which ways national identity seems to have been formed along certain processes and at historical turning points.
