Call for Papers: BASEES and IRES joint conference


The Institute for Russian and Eurasian Studies (IRES) and the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) invite proposals for panels and papers for a two-day conference to be held at Uppsala University in September 2018 with the theme ‘Regimes and Societies in Conflict: Eastern Europe and Russia since 1956’.

Over the last 60 years Eastern Europe and Russia have been the scene of immense political, social and cultural upheaval. This conference provides the opportunity to reflect on the changes in the region that have led from Stalinist dictatorships to the very varied polities of contemporary Eastern Europe and Russia.

Proposals for panels and papers are invited in any area of Eastern European and Russian Studies relevant to the theme: proposals are especially welcome from postgraduate research students and young scholars. To propose a panel or a paper you will need to fill in the electronic proposal form.

There are separate forms for panels and for individual papers.

The deadline for proposals is March 31, 2018.

Enquiries about the conference are welcome at
