National Identity in Motion
Berlin, Germany, August 31st-September 1st, 2015

The Research Unit „Migration, Integration, Transnationalization“ at the WZB Berlin Social Science Center invites submissions for a multi-disciplinary conference on national identity. The conference aims to discuss national identity at different levels, for example how individuals of immigrant and non-immigrant background negotiate and express national identity (e.g., in implicit and explicit attitudes or behaviors), how national identity is reproduced by public institutions such as schools, how states define national identity through their constitutions and laws or what measures and policies governments take to foster certain forms of national identity.
