“Beyond the collapse: Globalization projects in Eastern Europe before and after 2022“
The EEGA Annual conference is an established format that attracts scholars from around the world each year. After a successful congress in April 2021 on “Globalising Eastern Europe – New Perspectives on Transregional Entanglements” in cooperation with the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES), then still online, a joint effort was made together with the Regional Studies Association (RSA) on „Bridging Old and New Divides: Global Dynamics & Regional Transformations“ in September 2022.
The conference in 2023 continued the discussions along these lines. Against the backdrop of recent developments in the region, EEGA’s Annual conference from 16 to 17 May 2023 asked “How do Eastern European actors respond to the new global challenges? How do they reconfigure their globalization projects?” The in-person event took place in cooperation with EEGA’s main partner, the Research Centre Global Dynamics (ReCentGlobe) at Leipzig University, in Leipzig, city of EEGA’s headquarters.
