Authors are invited to submit one or more chapters to the guest-edited collection of papers Rethinking Ethnicity: challenges, perspectives for the millennium (Cambridge Scholars Publishing).

Guest Editor: Dr. Nailya Bashirova

Stark political change from the 1980s — the disintegration of multi-ethnic states, the forced removal of some ethnic groups from their homelands — produced complex, contested changes in ethnicity, alongside homogenisation, an impetus to nationalism.
This multi-disciplinary collection examines problems in ethnicity using research paradigms from linguistics, social, cultural and media studies.

Descriptive keywords:
Ethnic group, ethnic identity, multi-ethnic state, ethnic conflict, migration, ethnic diversity, ethnic discrimination, borders, multi-culturalism, heritage language.
