Following the first successful Regional Conference in Uppsala, Sweden, the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) organises its second Regional Conference in cooperation with the Leibniz-ScienceCampus “Eastern Europe – Global Area” (EEGA) on 16 – 19 September 2020 in Leipzig, Germany. Under the theme “Globalizing Eastern Europe – New Perspectives on Transregional Entanglements” we seek to stimulate and discuss research on these border-crossing encounters in a comparative perspective. Aiming to stimulate a debate about interpretations across historical periods and geographical spaces, the conference brings together perspectives and case studies from a variety of disciplines. In thematic panels, round table discussions and interactive workshops dedicated to knowledge transfer and innovative science communication, about 100 international junior and senior scholars present their research on Eastern Europe in its global and transregional entanglements. A PechaKucha Night for young researchers will open the interdisciplinary exchange on 15 September at ZOiS (Berlin).
After an excellent response to our earlier Call for Panels we now cordially invite proposals for individual papers. We specifically look for paper proposals that complement and fill slots in already existing panels while also expanding the intellectual range of the conference’s programme. We particularly welcome proposals addressing the following fields of inquiry:
- Youth: Attitudes, Participation and Transnationalism
- National Education and Globalized Academic Standards
- Economic Development under the Global Condition
- Populist Movements and Forms of Authoritarianism in their Transnational Entanglements
Please find all information here and on the BASEES Website.
