Social science and humanities disciplines, especially those whose areas of research have traditionally been linked to ethnic and national identities, have great potential to place nationalist theses with the support of "science". This feature is widespread in the area of ​​Southeast Europe or within the Balkans due to an important methodological specifics pattern shared in these areas. Researchers in these disciplines usually focus on exploring different aspects of their own "culture" to which they belong. Such closeness imposes the danger of idealizing, glorifying, and somewhat romanticizing one's "own" culture. As regards the national scientific disciplines, this methodological positioning of the researchers poses even more directly as relevant the thesis that they should and must work in favor of national interests. While in the more developed centers in the neighboring countries, discussions have long been started that seriously question these problems of the national scientific disciplines, in the Macedonian context there is still no interest in such deconstructions which, given the current turbulent political developments for Macedonian society, are more than necessary. This issue of EthnoAnthropoZoom raises the topic of nationalism present in the national scientific disciplines aiming to foster a discussion of the dangers that may arise from such a nexus, as well as its essential "unscientific" nature. We invite researchers from various social and human sciences disciplines, especially those identified as national, to try to problematize precisely the concept of "national scientific disciplines". We welcome retrospective analyzes of the theoretical and methodological positioning of the various scientific disciplines throughout history as well as analyzes of the production (journals, books, and texts), i.e. of the dominant expressions in the various disciplines. The main question we ask is whether researchers in the "national scientific disciplines" should continue to legitimize ethnocentrism and nationalism as their professional vocation, or whether they should finally be critical of such positions. Finally, the critical approach to nationalism in national scientific disciplines that warns of its danger can again be interpreted as work in favor of the national interests. In that sense, we open a discussion on the question of which of these two opposing positions is actually more useful for society?   The final deadline for the submission of texts is 01.06.2022.
