Registration fees are $90 for ASN members, $110 for nonmembers, $60 for students (and a special rate of $30 for nonpanelist graduate students enrolled in New York area universities). The registration form can be downloaded at https://nationalities.wufoo.com/forms/asn-registration-form/.

Two special roundtables will be held on the Ukraine escalating crisis (on Thursday April 24 at 6.20 PM and Friday April 25 at 11.20 AM). Up-to-the minute roundtables on the “Bosnian Spring” and the 2014 Hungarian election were also added to the program.

As always, the Convention boasts the most international lineup of panelists of North American-based conventions, with more than half of the 400+ scholars delivering papers, currently based outside of the United States in nearly 50 countries. More than 750 panelists and participants are expected at the Convention. The program features 150 panels, including the screening of 12 new documentaries that will be announced shortly. The films include Watchers of the Sky, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, and Putin’s Games.

The Convention offers an exceptionally strong lineup of panels in all regions of the former Communist world and Eurasia: Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia/Turkey-Greece/China, the Balkans, Ukraine/Belarus and Central Europe (including the Baltics and Moldova). Every year, the Program Committee has to be more selective in devising the lineup, due to the increasing number of proposals. The Central Europe and Balkans sections are the largest, with 25 and 23 panels respectively, followed by Russia and the Caucasus-21, Ukraine (and Belarus)-17, Central Asia/China/ Turkey/Greece-a combined 17, Nationalism Studies-13 and the new Migration section-8 panels.

In its most visible section, the Convention will be hosting 17 special panels featuring new important books. The list includes Ian Buruma’s Year Zero: A History of 1945, Andreas Wimmer’s Ethnic Boundary Maker and Serhii Plokhy’s The Last Empire: The Final Days of the Soviet Union, the latter event conducted in the form of a conversation with the author. The book panel Totally Unofficial: The Autobiography of Raphael Lemkin (by Donna Lee-Frieze) will be followed, in the next session,  by the documentary Watchers of the Sky, partly evoking the live of Raphael Lemkin. Other book panels will feature the latest monographs by Margarita Balmaceda (The Politics of Energy Dependency), David Crowe (War Crimes, Genocide & Justice), Montserrat Guibernau (Belonging), Ipek Yosmaoglu (Blood Ties), Jan Grabowski (Hunt for the Jews), Maria Koinova (Varieties of Governance in Bulgaria, Macedonia, and Kosovo), Soeren Keil (Multinational Federalism in Bosnia), Stephen Jones (Georgia: A Political History), Lynn Tesser (Ethnic Cleansing and the EU), Elissa Helms (Innocence and Victimhood), Larry Markowitz (State Erosion), and Jessica Greenberg (Youth, Democracy, and the Politics of Disappointment in Serbia). The opening reception of the Convention will be held on the 15th Floor of the International Affairs Building, 420 W. 118th St., New York on Thursday April 24 at 8.30 PM. The closing reception, at the same place on Saturday
– April 26 at 7.15 PM, will feature the announcements of the ASN Harriman Book Prize, the Best Doctoral Students Papers Awards and the Award for Best Documentary.
