When did the modern ethnonational mindset begin? What does it consist of? Where did it come from? How did it spread at the popular level?

This lecture will sketch the contours of a new approach to these fundamental questions.


Short bio

I hold degrees from Harvard, the Central European University, the University of California (Los Angeles), and the University of Memphis.  My scholarship combines a commitment to macro-historical issues of group mentality formation with a dedication to micro-historical methods of close textual analysis. I have taught at UCLA, the University of Memphis, the University of Helsinki, and the University of Jyväskylä.
