Extended Deadline CfP: Aleksanteri Conference 2023

This year’s Aleksanteri Conference, „Decolonizing Space in the Global East: Legal Choices, Political Transformations, Carceral Practices“, will address changes in the relationships within and between the former communist countries of the Global East, by which we mean the region that has been labelled as post/former -Soviet, -socialist, -communist, -imperial.

The conference is one of the largest annual conferences of Russian and Eastern European Studies in the world. It takes place in Helsinki in late October and stretches over three days. Over 200 papers are presented during the 50 panel sessions and more than 400 participants attend the conference every year.

In particular, the organizers encourage colleagues to propose panels and papers that address the conference’s principal themes of legal choices, political transformations, and carceral practices. They also welcome submissions on recent research across a broad range of disciplines, including (but not limited to) law, geography, politics, history, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, literature and language, and international relations.

Extended deadline for submissions: May 15, 2023
