2021 ASEEES Convention Theme

ASEEES 53rd Annual Convention

November 18-21, 2021 New Orleans, LA • Hilton New Orleans Riverside

Theme: Diversity, Intersectionality, Interdisciplinarity

2021 ASEEES President: Sibelan Forrester, Susan W. Lippincott Professor of Modern and Classical Languages and Russian, Swarthmore College

The 2021 ASEEES convention invites a diversity of approaches to diverse topics in the field and celebrates our various backgrounds, disciplines, and ways we create and propagate knowledge. Our studies of Eastern Europe and Eurasia have tended to be highly informed about class and economic questions, thanks largely to socialist scholars before and after the revolution, but these societies, their inhabitants and their discourses also bring other kinds of diversity: ethnicity, gender, language, race, religion, and sexuality. These are often perceived differently in Eastern Europe and Eurasia than in the Americas or Western Europe, which itself suggests possible approaches for study. Proposals from all disciplines and historical periods are welcome, and encouraged.

Deadline for ALL Submissions (panels, papers, roundtables, lightning rounds) is February 15, 2021.
