Imagined Primordialism

Keywords: Primordialism, nationalism


A series of seminars on Nationalism in the Ancient World, organized by Professor Zurab Kiknadze, were held at Ilia State University, Tbilisi on May 6 and 24. The seminars were designed for students and professors to question the assumption that nationalism is a concept unrelated to ancient societies and that nationhood and nationalism began to evolve from the Renaissance onwards. To corroborate this idea, the participants explored the evidence of early forms of nationhood and nationalism in ancient societies
