Call for Papers

The Institute for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Uppsala University and the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies 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.

There are separate forms for  panels and for individual papers.

The deadline for proposals is March 31, 2018.

Registration fee: €100

Registration fee (PhD students): €70
