[ Call for Papers | Applications ]

The Central European University [Nationalism Studies Program] announces a Call for applications for MA, PhD and DSP studies at the Central European University in Budapest.
The Nationalism Studies Program was established at Central European University by the late Ernst Gellner with the goal of promoting the study of nationalism in the post-communist countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. The aim of the program is to engage students in an empirical and theoretical study of issues of nationalism, self-determination, problems of state-formation, ethnic conflict, minority protection and the related theme of globalization.

The faculty of the Nationalism Studies Program includes Mária M. Kovács, András Kovács, Will Kymlicka, Shlomo Avineri, Rogers Brubaker, Donald Horowitz, Michael Stewart, Erica Benner, Walter Kemp, Selim Deringil, Rainer Bauböck, Tibor Várady, Victor Karády, Michael Miller, Zoltán Miklósi, Júlia Szalai and Florian Bieber.

Students are encouraged to engage in an interdisciplinary study of nationalism, a subject that is inherently and fundamentally interdisciplinary. For this reason, the international teaching staff has been assembled to represent a wide range of disciplinary expertise relevant to the study of nationalism including history, social theory, economics, legal studies, sociology, anthropology, international relations and
political science. The program offers a wide selection of courses that provide a complex theoretical grounding in problems associated with nationhood and nationalism combined with advanced training in the methodology of applied social science. Additional courses focus on placing problems of nationalism in the context of economic and political transition as well as constitution building in post-1989 Central and Eastern Europe
with a comparative outlook on regime transitions outside the region.

Applicants to the Nationalism Studies Program can apply for tuition waivers and living scholarhship. For information on the program and the offered grants and financial aid please visit the homepage.

CEU candidates who plan to apply for study grants from state sources, foundations or other organizations, may submit their application to CEU from October 1, 2005. Early applicants need to specify their funding application deadline. Early applications must contain all required documents and test certificates. CEU will aim to inform candidates of their admissions status within the timeframe needed to apply for such grants. Applicants may also apply for CEU's financial aid program, but the university will not be able to inform them about their CEU financial aid status until the competitive review of all other candidates has been completed.

For the Academic Year 2006/2007 the final deadline of the application is January 6, 2006.

With questions regarding the program or the admission process please turn to Szabolcs Pogonyi, the program coordinator.
