CfP: 2018 MAG Annual Convention, June 27-29 (Sponsored by ASEEES)

International Association for the Humanities - MAG

2018 Annual Convention
Lviv, Ukraine
June 27-29, 2018
in partnership with the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv

Co-sponsored by the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) 

Convention theme: Image of the Self

             This theme follows the previous convention’s “Image of the Other.”  We seek to examine the way states, societies, interest groups and social movements, as well as individuals, represent themselves to themselves and to others through manifold means including language, culture, literature, the politics of history, and politics as such. Images of the self can be found, of course, not only in scholarship but also in popular writing, artistic expression, and in the public sphere.

            How have some images given rise to stereotypes and instrumentalized narratives? How have some others constituted resources for tolerance, mutual respect, and cooperation? These issues appear in headlines worldwide, but they seem especially salient in Eastern Europe and Eurasia. 

            MAG invites proposals directly or indirectly addressing topics related to the “Image of the Self.”

Call for Proposals

            Proposals for complete and well-balanced panel sessions and roundtables will be given priority; individuals may also apply. A panel consists of an organizer, a moderator, three paper presenters, and a commentator. Roundtables must have a chair; and 3 to 5 roundtable speakers.

Applicants from Eurasia and Eastern Europe (non-European Union) are eligible for travel grants.

Deadline for proposals: March 5, 2018.

ASEEES is proud to offer funding in the form of the 2018 Summer Convention Travel Grant.  Deadline for applications: March 31
