Conference: Imagined Communities – 12 September 2013

Since Benedict Anderson introduced the concept of the nation as an ‘imagined community’ in his classic study Imagined Communities. Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism (1983), it has been a source of inspiration for scholars all over the world. This conference explores the use and adaptations of the concept ‘imagined community’ in scholarship from the Low Countries. Wherein lies its value for research in the humanities?

Conference in the Doelenzaal, UvA, between 10:15 – 15:30 hrs.
Keynote lecture by Benedict Anderson: Lost in translation. The odd history of Imagined Communities 1983-2013 – in the OMHP D0008, UvA, between 17 – 18:30 hrs.
