What makes people love and die for nations, as well as hate and kill in their name? While many studies have been written on nationalist political movements, the sense of nationality - the personal and cultural feeling of belonging to the nation - has not received proportionate attention. In this widely acclaimed work, Benedict Anderson examines the creation and global spread of the 'imagined communities' of nationality.

Artists in Dialogue, Transforming Communities

Res Artis 11th General Meeting

The theme of the meeting connects the policy lines of Res Artis, the mission of Trans Artists and 2008, the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue.  The theme of the conference also links to the Dutch international cultural policy: “Koers kiezen” (“Choosing direction”). Koers Kiezen stresses the significance of cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and the importance of hospitality, the Netherlands as a hosting country for international cultural exchange.
