Call for Papers

AABS Australasian Chapter 20th Conference

The Baltic States in a Changing World

RMIT University
Saturday 8 October 2022


The Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies (AABS) Australasian chapter is proud to announce that our 20th biennial conference will be held on 8 October 2022 at RMIT University in Melbourne.

We invite submissions on Baltic Studies in Australasia in the context of the renewed relevance of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania in global events and on the changing world stage, particularly in relation to the war on Ukraine. At the same time, it is important to maintain our scholarly activity in all our regular disciplines.

We welcome papers related to the Baltic region, its countries, and its populations both within those countries and their diasporas.

Contributions are encouraged from disciplines including: 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 particularly welcome.

Given still current difficulties of travel, but also appreciating new opportunities to transcend distance, the conference will have both face-to-face and online presentations and attendance through the Teams platform. The time of the conference will be from 9am to 5pm Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

Please send proposals (250 words) by 15 August 2022 to Dr. Delaney Skerrett, Chapter President and Conference Convenor at [email protected]
