In the first conference in our series ethnicity was defined as one of the forms of legitimization of social ties in society. Interconnection between ethnicity and power relations is reflected most vividly in the concepts of ‘subjecthood’ and ‘citizenship’, which not only denote belonging of groups/individuals to political formations, but also trigger collective social actions of heterogeneous (from the perspective of social, cultural and economic dimensions) groups/individuals, thus facilitating both vertical and horizontal consolidation and self-identification.
The conference organizing committee envisages the conference discussion to revolve around the following key issues: genealogies of ‘subjecthood’ and ‘citizenship’ in their ethno-national dimension; strategies of creation of heterogeneous relations of subjecthood in the situation of imperial diversity; reconciling and universalizing relations of citizenship in the process of nation-building, colonial and imperial situation; construction of the relations of subjecthood/citizenship, replacing or absorbing alternative identities and loyalties.
For the majority of scholars, the issues of subjecthood/citizenship are usually confined to the phenomenon of Western European modernity. Conversely, the organizers of the conference would like to discuss the problem of subjecthood/citizenship in a wider chronological and regional framework. Consequently, the organizing committee of the conference proposes the following thematic structure of the conference:
1. Loyalty and loyalties in the Early Middle Ages;
2. 'Communities of the realm': ethno-political and ethno-cultural consolidation in medieval patrimonial monarchies;
3. Composite monarchies and the issues of subjecthood in the Late Middle Ages and Early Modern time;
4. Subjecthood and citizenship in imperial contexts;
5. Modern 'nationalisms': opposition between citizenship and subjecthood?
6. Horizontal consolidation in nations and empires of modern history;
7. Subjecthood and citizenship in the context of alternative identities: between Staatsnation and Kulturnation;
8. Subjecthood and citizenship in the colonial context;
9. Citizenship in legal dimension: jus soli and jus sanguinis;
10. Subjecthood and citizenship and practices of exclusion in the XVIth- XXth cc.
11. Soviet nationalities policy: construction and institutionalization of nationality in the situation of post-imperial diversity
12. The issues of nationality in the nationalizing states of the XXth-XXIth cc.
The working languages of the conference are English and Russian.
