During the long nineteenth century, the Herderian motto that language reflects the soul of the nation proved to be a pivotal agent in forming ethnies, nations and national territories as well as in excluding linguistic minorities. In the spring of 2005, the Groningen Research School for the Study of the Humanities hosted a workshop on the subject of Ethnolinguistic nationalism in the Netherlands, Flanders and the Scandinavian countries. The workshop was organized and attended by a select, interdisciplinary group of scholars whose papers are presented in this volume, XXXIII in the series Groningen Studies in Cultural Change. The volume opens with introductory and theoretical surveys on the theme of nationalism, followed by critical surveys of each of the above-mentioned regions and nations. The contributions to the volume consist of the discussion and development of some interesting new fields of research on the subject.
