Jun 17, 2015

University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA, May 26-28, 2016

The 2006 AABS conference will explore the independence, dependence, and interconnections of Baltic states, peoples, and communities across time and space in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary perspective. It will uncover the distinctive, hybrid, and globalized features of culture, politics, economics, history, language, and other aspects of life in the Baltic countries.

The conference welcomes papers, panels, and roundtable presentations in fields related to the Baltic region, its countries, and populations within those countries, including minorities. Contributions are encouraged from disciplines including, but not limited to, the following: anthropology, architecture, business, communication and media, cultural studies, demography, economics, education, environment, ethnic relations, film studies, fine arts, gender studies, geography, history, international relations, law, linguistics, literature, memory, political science, psychology, public health, religion, sociology, and advancing Baltic studies. Interdisciplinary and comparative work is welcome. We are also particularly interested in papers focused on Baltic Jewish studies.

Graduate students, both Master and Ph.D., are encouraged to submit proposals.

Paper and panel proposals must include an abstract of no more than 250 words and a one- to two-page curriculum vitae. These materials should be sent simultaneously to the appropriate divisional chair’s email address below AND [email protected]. Interdisciplinary papers should be sent to one divisional chair, according to the author’s judgment, AND [email protected]: The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2015.
