Call for Proposals

The VIII World Congress of the International Council for Central and East European Studies will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, on 26-31 July 2010. The Swedish Society for the Study of Russia, Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia invites all interested scholars to submit proposals for panels, papers and round-table discussions. These proposals should reflect the results of new research in the study of developments in the cultural, political, social and economic processes underway in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

2010 marks the 25th anniversary of Mikhail Gorbachev's appointment to the position of General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, and the Congress therefore considers it to be an opportune time to revisit his policies of glasnost and perestroika. Of special interest for the Congress are the cultural transformations that occur at times of intense political and economic change. At the same time, the present international situation poses new challenges, and the Congress seeks to organize a wide scholarly discussion of these developments. The processes of European integration and wider cooperation across Eurasia not only impact upon geographical spaces but also leave their mark upon cultural spaces. These processes make communication between languages, histories, religions, traditions, legacies and memories more complex.
Humanities and social science scholars are therefore invited to reflect on how local cultural contexts react to, engage in, or resist globalization.
