Hannah Arendt Humanities Network
HAHN Ideas Forum: Nationalism Around the WorldOSUN invites applications for the second Hannah Arendt Humanities Network Ideas Forum, which will take place September 15th-19th at the National Sun Yat-sen University in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, focused on the theme of nationalism. The forum features robust conversations on two subjects: the differences between nationalism as it is understood in Europe and nationalism as it is understood in other parts of the world – particularly in Asia; and nationalism in the Chinese-Taiwanese context specifically.
As questions are raised about the utility of transnational systems like the EU and NATO, nationalism has taken on a larger role in European politics since the fall of the Soviet Union. Meanwhile, East Asian countries like Korea, China, and Japan each have very different views about the place of nationalism in contemporary politics. Discussions will focus on these differing views of nationalism as well as how nationalism is viewed in a post-colonial context around the world.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in rigorous, intellectual dialogues, attend lectures, and participate in break-out sessions with speakers and other students. Travel, food, and accommodations courtesy of HAHN*
