Kokkalis Graduate Student Workshop, Harvard

11th Annual Kokkalis Graduate Student Workshop

The Kokkalis Program, in collaboration with the Southeast European Study Group of Harvard's Center for European Studies in 1999 launched the annual Kokkalis Graduate Student Workshop on Southeastern Europe. The Workshop takes place every February and is a forum for graduate students and scholars who are focusing their studies on Southeastern and East-Central Europe.

The goal of the Workshop is to bring together graduate students from around the world and of all disciplines of social science to present papers on issues related to Southeastern Europe. It is an exciting opportunity for students, faculty and others interested in the region to meet and exchange views on issues such as foreign policy, security, civil society, human rights, media, crime and corruption, economic reform, public administration and policy. Graduate students submit proposals for papers to present and then are sponsored to travel to Cambridge and participate in the Workshop.

Eastern Europe in Crisis, 05/13-14/2010, Scotland


Greetings. I write to let you know that we are proposing to organise a small conference here in May 2010 on EASTERN EUROPE AND THE CRISIS, with a focus on the political implications of the economic changes that have taken place since late 2008 in Russia, Ukraine and Belarus (and of course elsewhere). We’ve chosen the dates Thurs 13 and Friday 14 May 2010, from 2pm on the Thursday to 5 or so on the Friday, followed by a dinner.

We’re inviting papers (on top of those already promised), and we expect to be able to meet all local costs and at least to make a contribution to travelling costs where these cannot be met from other sources. We may include a concluding panel that will give an opportunity to those who would like to make a contribution but not necessarily in the form of a written paper, and you are welcome to propose your services as chair (we don’t expect to have discussants as such).

Subject to agreement and obviously to the comments of reviewers, we would hope to make the papers available for consideration as a special issue of Europe-Asia Studies (and probably as a separate book).

Do please let us know if you would be able and willing to attend, and if you would wish to offer a formal paper, what its title would be. We will be in touch again at a later stage with more specific arrangements.

Beyond Cold War Linearities: Entangled Histories and Interactive Ideas, 12/04-06/2009. Budapest

Deadline: October 15,2009

Beyond Cold War Linearities:
Entangled Histories and Interactive Ideas
4-6 December 2009
OSA Archivum, Arany Janos utca 32, 1051, Budapest

The anniversary of 1989 regime change brought about a wide range of discussions about Communist legacies and Cold War impact on the transitions in the Eastern European countries. In this respect, one can detect a tendency of approaching Communism by underlying the institutions which influenced its demise, or of analyzing transitions as a socio-political struggle for European (re)integration. In either way, the destinies of the ex-Communist countries are subjected to linear narratives, converging towards the vision of a teleological (self-)liberation. The interest in the past's influence paradoxically cohabitates with a series of epistemological local reticences regarding applied research on recent history. This can be correlated with a general scarcity concerning meta-reflections on Cold War studies paradigms and - implicitly - with an empirical inaccessibility of the archival documents related to Cold War propaganda. One intriguing case is in this sense that of Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty, theimportance of which is still emotionally evoked and scientifically underexplored because of the persistence of traumatic views about the past and because of unavailability of the sources.

We invite therefore proposals related to social sciences and humanities to evaluate the current state of area studies, Cold War history and media theories in order to enhance not just a meta-critical view about Cold War and Communism, but also to spur national historiographies to analytically appropriate their past forged by international policies and still made obscure by a plethora of undigested documents. In order to enhance the formation of truly critical and inter-cultural frameworks on teaching and conducting research on recent history, we also invitecontributions with courses aiming at providing systematic introduction to the study of totalitarian societies by combining post-totalitarian theoretical frameworks with local narratives pertaining to social and oral history. By bringing together the history of ideas, psychohistory, symbolic interactionism, social history and media anthropology, the conference seeks in this way to concretely aggregate an interdisciplinary framework for the study of a period characterized by complex intellectual mobility, the intricate interplay of fantasies about the "Other", different societal accommodations, generational changes and conceptual imbrications between East-European traditions and Western cultural and political models.

The conference is organized by OSA Archivum in cooperation with CEU History (Karl Hall and Ioana Toma) and IRES (Irina Papkov) Departments, CEU CRC and International Alternative Culture Center (Olga Zaslavskaya).

The conference will be held in 4-6 December 2009 in Budapest and is designed to prepare an edited volume. Paper givers will be asked to present first drafts of their book chapters for precirculation among participants and for intensive discussion at the conference. Limited fellowship funds might be available for non-EU participants. Please contact Olga Zaslavskaya zaslavsk@ceu.hu This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it at your earliest convenience.

Interested scholars should submit:
(1) title and one-page abstract of their paper;
(2) CV and list of publications;
(3) institutional affiliation or place of residence.
Please submit materials by 15 October to
Olga Zaslavskaya

Socialist 1960s: Popular Culture and the Socialist City in Global Perspective, UIUC, 06/24-26/2010, IL

Deadline: OCTOBER 15, 2009

Call for Proposals
The Socialist 1960s: Popular Culture and the Socialist City in Global Perspective
2010 Fisher Forum, Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign,
June 24-26, 2010

The 1960s witnessed an explosion of cross-cultural fertilization in a time of world competition for the hegemony of two enduring "systems" - capitalism and socialism. As a moment when decolonization created immense possibilities for liberation movements throughout the world, the 1960s became the heyday of the "Second World" appeals to the newly decolonized societies of the "Third World," as well as the reemergence of a European "First World" as a postwar consumer society in reaction to American hegemony. This was the moment when the "orderedness" of the three worlds was arguably the most prominent in popular discourse and culture, and a moment when that order was contested and destabilized. The patterns that first emerged in the 1960s - cultural contest, political mobility, urbanization and the rise of urban youth movements, women's rights, the hegemony of popular over "high" culture driven by technology - form the bases of today's discussions of globalization, its challenges, dangers, and contestation.

The purpose of this conference will be to use the Second World, the socialist societies of the 1960s, as the center from which to explore global interconnections and uncover new and perhaps surprising patterns of cultural cross-pollination. This forum will be structured around cities as the units of analysis, and it will focus on the arena of popular culture as played out in these city spaces. More specifically, we invite paper proposals that focus on one of three realms of urban popular culture - media (including cinema, television, popular music); material culture (including spaces and their uses as well as commodities), and leisure (including tourism and other activities). We consider these exemplary of the circulation of objects, images, sounds, and impressions on a level different from political programs, literature and "fine arts." Several thematic threads will tie together this consideration of the circulation of popular culture around and through the Second world: mobility and cultural transmission; youth cultures and student movements; gender; consumerism and hedonism; the state and cultural exchange; technology and cultural dissemination; cosmopolitan political mobilization. Our aims will be to consider what the "1960s" meant in socialist countries, and to discuss the balance in the 1960s between cultural global integration and continuing political differentiation.

The core of the forum will be the socialist societies of eastern Europe and the Soviet Union, but the forum would be enriched by participation from scholars who study other socialist societies. We anticipate that the conference will result in a published volume: submissions should be original work,
not previously published.

The conference organizers are Diane P. Koenker, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (dkoenker@illinois.edu) and Anne E. Gorsuch, University of British Columbia (gorsuch@interchange.ubc.ca). We welcome advance inquiries..

Please send proposed paper title and abstracts to each of the organizers by October 15, 2009. Proposals should indicate which of the conference themes the paper addresses, and the term "Sixties" or "1960s" should be explicit in the paper title. Selection of participants will be made by November 30,
2009, and conference papers should be submitted by April 1, 2010.

The Ralph and Ruth Fisher Forum is held in conjunction with the Summer Research Laboratory on Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia. The conference is made possible by Mary and Hal Zirin's generous gift to the Ralph and Ruth Fisher Endowment Fund in honor of Professor Ralph Fisher and his wife Ruth.
Ralph Fisher is Professor Emeritus of History at the University of Illinois and founder of the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center and the Summer Research Lab.
