New Cycle F in
Nationalism and Ethnic Politics

The course provides an overview of a vast and expanding literature and an introduction to the most
relevant current debates in the field of nationalism and ethnic politics. The course deals with the concepts,
theories, historical origins, trajectories and variety of nationalism and its relationship with the modern state.
With the help of a number of historical case studies from the distant and the recent past, the course investigates
the significance of ethnicity for today’s globalizing world.
The 2015 Olympia Summer Academy call is out!
Join us and become part of a worldwide scholarly network!
As of summer 2015, OSA is moving to Nafplio, the first capital of modern Greece and a picturesque seaport town
where the medieval meets the modern. We look forward to this new OSA era, but at the same time we remain
strongly committed, and indeed thankful, to Olympia both for its hospitality during the last thirteen years and
its guiding flame and spirit that will always remain with us.
“If you are considering a summer school on political violence or IR theory for 2015 and beyond,
I know of no better place than the Olympia Summer Academy, at which I just had a wonderful experience,
both academically and personally, learning much and making many new friends.
A big thanks to my gracious hosts Andreas Gofas, Stathis Kalyvas, Dimitris Keridis
and the rest of the Olympia team for ten memorable days in Thucydides’ land!”
Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, Yale University
