Amidst numerous, intersecting global crises, nationalism has rapidly returned to the forefront of world politics. More than ever, there is an urgent need to understand nationalism.

The State of Nationalism: An International Review (SoN) responds to this need by publishing high quality articles that review key themes in the study of nationalism, alongside an annotated bibliography of all significant, English-language scholarly sources on nationalism.

All material published with SoN is written by experts, peer-reviewed, and open-source. The quality of the articles is equivalent to the best multi-volume readers and journal articles that survey an area of research. To contribute an article, please contact Mr Stefan Poland at

SoN is generously supported by the research network National movements and Intermediary Structures in Europe (NISE), the University of Toronto, and the University of Plymouth. SoN also benefits from partnerships with Association for the Study of Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN), the Centre for Research on Migration, Refugees and Belonging (CMRB) and the Study Platform on Interlocking Nationalisms (SPIN).  Dr Eric Taylor Woods and Dr Robert Schertzer are jointly responsible for the overall management and editing of SoN. Mr Stefan Poland is responsible for the database and web content.
