Old Rules & New Traditions: Generational Divides in Central & Eastern Europe
Generational divides with regard to rules and traditions are a recurring theme in the past and present of Central and Eastern Europe. The region has been subject to great turmoil and has undergone a multitude of changes and transformations over time.
While some traditions have survived, others have been overhauled. Rules have been broken or adapted; yet each generation has also attempted to make their own rules and created new traditions.
These phenomena can be observed and analysed from a variety of perspectives: historical, cultural, political, economic, social, and beyond. We look forward to submissions that are cross-cultural, cross-national, and multi-disciplinary. Topics can include but are not limited to the following areas:
- national identity and nation building;
- a clash of urban and rural ways of life;
- insiders and outsiders;
- economic or political reform;
- religiosity and secularism;
We are particularly interested in papers addressing the conference theme but also welcome other research dealing with the countries of:
- Central and Eastern Europe
- South-East Europe
- Former Soviet Union
We also encourage submissions that place these countries into an inter-regional comparative context.
The conference invites applications from postgraduate students and early career researchers from the Social Sciences and Humanities. Abstracts of up to 300 words and a CV with full contact information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The language of the conference is English. A selection of papers will appear in a separate conference publication.
We expect that there will be a limited number of bursaries available for travel expenses.
Deadline for submissions: 16 August 2013
From 9am daily
19 February - 6pm - 8pm
21 February 6pm - 8pm
