Peter Stadius and Ruth Hemstad launched their book Nordic Experiences in Pan-nationalisms during the 6th Nordic Challenges Conference, where it received much interest.
The book Nordic Experiences in Pan-nationalisms. A Reappraisal and Comparison, 1840–1940 is edited by Ruth Hemstad and Peter Stadius.
The book is a result from the UiO:Nordic research project Nordic Civil Societies and is funded by ReNEW and Letterstedtska.
The book seeks to reassess and shed new light on pan-nationalisms in general and on Scandinavianism/Nordism in particular, by seeing them as possible futures and as interconnected ideas and practices across and beyond Europe.
The book is open access and available on Routledge's eBook platform:
Many contributions from international scholars
An actor- and practice-oriented approach is applied at the expense of more essentialist categorisations of what pan-nationalism is, or is not, to underline both the synchronic and diachronic diversity of various pan-national movements.
A range of expert international scholars discuss encounters, transfers, similarities and differences among pan-movements in Norden and Europe based on a broad empirical material, focusing on Scandinavianism/Nordism, pan-Slavism, pan-Turanism, pan-Germanism and Greater Netherlandism, and the position of Britishness in Great Britain.
This book will be of key interest to scholars and students of nationalism, European history, European studies and Scandinavian studies, history, social science, political geography, civil society and literary studies.
