26th Conference of junior scholars in the field of East European studiesShow details
The conference provides an overview of current research projects on Eastern Europe, particularly within German universities, and also enables interdisciplinary exchange regarding Eastern Europe, as well as networking among young scholars. The conference aims to bring together advanced students, PhD candidates and young scholars who have already completed their doctoral research from various disciplines focussing on Eastern Europe (including Central and Southeastern Europe), and invites them to present and discuss their research projects with other prospective scholars and qualified professionals.
Unlike in previous years, there is no overall theme for this conference. Therefore, the participants from different research areas have the opportunity to set their own priorities and make use of the networking opportunities and discussions at the JOE Conference. The conference therefore also offers an insight into the current German-language research relating to Eastern Europe based on the topics and contributions of the young scholars. Accordingly, the conference is open to research projects in the social sciences, the humanities and cultural studies, as well as to contributions from the fields of economics and law. Interdisciplinary projects are of particular interest. The language of the conference is German, although contributions may be submitted and presented in English. In addition, proposals for panels consisting of three contributions can be suggested.
The conference is organized by the German Association of Eastern European Studies (DGO), the Research Centre for East European Studies at the University of Bremen (FSO), the Leibniz Institute for History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) and the Leibniz ScienceCampus "Eastern Europe - Global Area" (EEGA), with the latter acting as host institutions. The costs for accommodation and catering are covered by the organizers.
