In addition to the thematic sections on the far right, refugees, memory, violence and the Russia/Ukraine conflict, popular themes over the years have included gender, youth, language politics, religion, arts and culture, EU integration/exit, foreign policy, nation-building, energy politics, parties and elections, and civil society.


Disciplines represented include political science, history, anthropology, sociology, international studies, security studies, area studies, economics, geography, literature, and other fields of humanities and social sciences.


Prospective applicants can get a sense of the large thematic scope of ASN Convention papers and presentations by looking at the 2018 Final Program.


The ASN scholarly journal Nationalities Papers will be published as of January 2019 by Cambridge University Press. The ASN 2019 Convention Opening Reception will celebrate this new partnership between ASN and Cambridge University Press.
