Global Waves of Nationalism in the Longue Durée: World-Historical Origins of Secessionist Uprisings of the 21st Century
Sahan Savas Karatasli is a comparative-historical sociologist whose work examines the relationship between social movements (nationalist movements, labor unrest, rebellions and revolutions), historical processes of capitalism, state formation and warfare. His Ph.D. dissertation - titled "Financial Expansions, Hegemonic Transitions and Nationalism: A Longue Durée Analysis of State-Seeking Nationalist Movements" (2013, Johns Hopkins University) - received the 2014 Theda Skocpol Dissertation Award by the Comparative-Historical Sociology Section of the American Sociological Association. Currently, as a PIIRS Post-Doctoral fellow of “Empires: Domination, Collaboration and Resistance” Research Community, Karatasli is finishing his book manuscript titled “Global Waves of Nationalism in the Longue Durée: Capitalism, Warfare and Contentious Conjunctures”, which examines the relationship between major waves of nationalist revolts in the world and periods of intensified economic crises, inter-state warfare and social revolutions in the world from 13th century to present. His ongoing research projects also include changing patterns of global income inequality; formation, dissolution and transformation of international orders; and waves of social unrest in world history from the late 18th century to present.
