CONF./CFP- ICCEES World Cong. - Int'l Council for Central & East Eur. Studies

Posted by: Henry Wathen <>

Dear Colleagues:

We have the honour to invite the international academic community to
the VIII ICCEES World Congress in Stockholm 2010, to participate in a
wide scholarly discussion with the overriding theme:

Eurasia: Prospects for Wider Cooperation

Call for Proposals

The VIII World Congress of the International Council for Central and
East European Studies will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, on 26-31
July 2010.

The Swedish Society for the Study of Russia, Central and Eastern
Europe and Central Asia invites all interested scholars to submit
proposals for panels, papers and round-table discussions. These
proposals should reflect the results of new research in the study of
developments in the cultural, political, social and economic processes
underway in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union.

While acknowledging the ongoing European integration processes, the
VIII World Congress is convened at a time when the international
situation poses new security challenges, requiring the elaboration of
new strategies. The Congress seeks to organize a wide scholarly
discussion of these developments. The processes of European
integration and wider cooperation across Eurasia not only impact upon
geographical spaces but also leave their mark upon cultural spaces.
These processes make communication between languages, histories,
religions, traditions, legacies and memories more complex. Humanities
and social science scholars are therefore invited to reflect on how
local cultural contexts react to, engage in, or resist globalization.

For more information about the general themes of the Congress, please see:
