Centre for the Study of Nationalism and Organised Violence

Director: Niall Ó Dochartaigh, School of Political Science and Sociology, NUI Galway. Niall.odochartaigh@nuigalway.ie

Description:

The Centre for the Study of Nationalism and Organised violence is a specialised research centre within the Moore Institute for Research in the Humanities and Social Studies. The centre focuses on the comparative, theoretical and empirical study of the relationship between nationalism and organised violence. It aims to provide an inter-disciplinary forum for the long term macro historical as well as the micro interactional analyses of ethnic conflicts, warfare and coercive social action. The analytical spotlight is on the significance of organised violence as a source of conflict and cohesion, its role in the formation and maintenance of modern nation-states and its link with nationalist ideologies. More specialised areas of research include: the relationship between banal and 'hot' nationalisms, war propaganda, battlefield solidarity, war and social stratification, gender and organised violence, nationalism, conflict and new technologies, insurgency and para-military actions, revolutions and the changing character of warfare in the 21st century.

The Centre's primary objectives are the following:

  • To provide a forum for academic discussion and initiatives leading to major events investigating transnational links and comparisons between past societies, such as international conferences (i.e., ‘Small Nations and Colonial Peripheries in World War I', International Conference held at the Moore Institute, NUI Galway, on 13th-14th June 2014).

  • To provide a forum for public awareness of the importance of transnational links and historical comparisons between Ireland and other countries in the modern past.
