BASEES Annual Conference 2020, 3-5 April 2020, Robinson College, University of Cambridge, UK

Call for papers

Submission of abstracts is now open. DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 14 OCTOBER

The British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) invites proposals for panels and roundtables, and papers for its 2020 annual conference. BASEES 2020 will be held from 3rd April to 5th April and will be hosted at Robinson College, Cambridge, United Kingdom. The 2019 conference welcomed over 500 delegates from over 40 countries around the world.

BASEES welcomes paper, panel and roundtable proposals in the following areas: Politics; History; Sociology and Geography; Film and Media, Languages and Linguistics; Literatures and Cultures; and Economics. The conference especially welcomes participation by postgraduate research students and early career scholars.

As usual the annual conference will provide a platform to present and discuss research on all subjects covered by the association. This year we also want to use BASEES 2020 to discuss and reflect critically on issues affecting ethnic and racial minorities, members of the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, and other underrepresented groups in our community, as well as in our research. We therefore particularly welcome paper, panel and roundtable proposals relating to the theme of diversity and inclusion in Slavonic and East European Studies.
