* 22nd Jena Workshop on Intergroup Processes, June 30– July 2, 2022*

*Title:* National identity: its nature, causes, and consequences

*Location:* Castle Eyba, Eyba / Saalfeld, Germany

Nationalism is a Janus-faced issue. On the one hand, nationalism creates
prejudice, hatred, and violent conflicts among nations, but on the other
hand, it also boosts national solidarity and cooperation. This might
explain why nationalism, national identification and belonging continue to
attract intense research attention from various disciplines including
political science, sociology and history. In psychology, however, there is
relatively less research on the nature, causes, and consequences of
national identification.What is special and unique about national
identification? What does national identification share with many if not
all other group identities? What are the social psychological underpinnings
of identifying with one’s nation and what factors strengthen and weaken our
national identities? How does our subjective feeling of attachment and
identification with our nations influence group cohesion and conflict
management? In this workshop, we will discuss theoretical approaches and
ongoing empirical work on what makes national group identities (e.g.,
language, culture, essentialized categorization, glorification, narcissism,
national ideological polarization, etc.) unique. We will also examine the
determinants of national identification (e.g., economic competition, values
threats etc.) and its consequences (e.g., societal solidarity,national
cohesion) within and between groups (e.g., prejudice, preference for
national to international policies). Finally, we will also focus on
attempts to compare different identities to better understand the unique
features that link national identity and nationalism.

We are happy to announce that Prof. Dr. Gina Gustavsson (University of
Uppsala, Sweden) and Prof. Dr. Nick Hopkins (University of Dundee, UK) are
our keynote speakers.

The aim of the 22nd Jena Workshop is to bring together researchers who are
interested in the determinants and consequences of national identity. This
in-person workshop aims to stimulate further theorizing and empirical
research on nationalism, patriotism, societal solidarity and cohesion,
determinants and consequences of national identity and attachment such as
intergroup prejudice, ethnocentrism, and intergroup conflict.

Following the tradition of the Jena Workshops on Intergroup Processes, the
format of this medium‐size meeting is single‐session with a strong focus on
intensive discussions of unresolved questions on national identity and
related issues. We wish to emphasize that “work-in-progress” is greatly
valued and preferred to summaries of already published data. Early career
and senior researchers are encouraged to submit presentation proposals as
the central purpose of this conference is to bring together junior and
senior researchers. Note that the participant limit for the meeting is
about 25. Two participants per paper are welcome (e.g., a PhD student and
their supervisor). The meeting will take place from *June 30th – July 2nd,
2022 *at Schloss Eyba (Germany), a picturesque historical castle at
Saalfeld close to Jena and Weimar.

Researchers interested in participation are invited to submit a max. 300
abstract for their proposed presentation by April 15th, 2022, to Clemens
Lindner. A participation fee will be charged. In the preceding years, this
fee was around 100€ for PhD Students, and 200€ for Post-Doc participants,
including accommodation and full board. Clemens Lindner (
Clemens.Lindner at uni-jena.de) and Thomas Kessler (Thomas.Kessler at uni-jena.de)
are happy to answer any inquiries related to the workshop. Due to the
on-going COVID-19 pandemic, we will adhere to the recommended precautions
to ensure the safety of all participants. To participate in the meeting,
all participants will be required to show a proof of vaccination or
recovery from a COVID-19 infection and a proof of a negative rapid antigen
test or a PCR test (2G+ rule).
