Eastern Europe - Global Area / Eastern Europe in Global Relations

Call for panels

The conference aims for emphasising ranges and sustainabilities of globalisation projects in Eastern Europe. We are inviting contributions especially to the following subject areas, which shall be discussed in preferably coherent panels:

· The imprint of Eastern Europe through cultural encounters, transfers and interactions

· The economic linkages of Eastern Europe and its relation to processes of migration

· The approach to ecological challenges (environmental history) in Eastern Europe

· Eastern Europe in public international law and the dynamics of international organisations

· The relations of Eastern Europe with Africa, Asia and Latin America

· Scepticism towards globalisation and interdependencies in the present

This transdisciplinary and topical as well as chronological widespread examination with Eastern Europe as a global area is inspired by the pursuit of a differentiated understanding of current developments in the region, which shall not be considered isolated, but in relation to other parts of the world.

Proposals for single contributions with a length of 20 minutes are requested with an abstract (300 words) until 15 April 2018 to Dr. Katja Naumann (knaumann@uni-leipzig.de)

A publication of contributions is envisaged subsequent to the conference.
