ON-Lion Letter
The relentless thrust of globalization and the unexpected termination of the Cold War have increased rather than reduced global tensions.  These developments force us to reconsider some themes once thought to be exhausted.  Migrations, the formation of Diaspora communities, and the resurgence of ethnicities, both old and new, have transformed our understanding of nationalism and conventional conceptions of the nation-state. 

The 2008 conference of The Historical Society (THS) will consider these themes in history.  THS seeks to revitalize the study and teaching of history by reorienting the historical profession toward an accessible, integrated history free from fragmentation and over-specialization.  It is supported by The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee.

THS's “Migration, Diaspora, Ethnicity, and Nationalism in History” conference will be held June 5th through 8th at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) in Baltimore.  JHU history professor Franklin W. Knight chairs the 2008 conference program committee.  Registration for the event can be completed online.
