Following the first successful Regional Conference in Uppsala, Sweden, the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) organises its second Regional Conference in cooperation with the Leibniz ScienceCampus "Eastern Europe – Global Area" (EEGA) in April 2021, in Leipzig, Germany. Under the theme "Globalising Eastern Europe – New Perspectives on Transregional Entanglements", we seek to stimulate and discuss research on these border-crossing encounters in a comparative perspective. Aiming to stimulate a debate about interpretations across historical periods and geographical spaces, the conference brings together perspectives and case studies from a variety of disciplines. In thematic panels, round table discussions and interactive workshops dedicated to knowledge transfer and innovative science communication, about 100 international junior and senior scholars present their research on Eastern Europe, an area spanning from Poland in the West to Russia in the East, to the Balkans and the Caucasus in the South, in its global and transregional entanglements. A PechaKucha Night for young researchers will open the interdisciplinary exchange on 20 April at ZOiS (Berlin).
Note: For the EEGA BASEES Regional Conference 2021, conference fees are waived to allow international scholars at all stages of training and a large interested academic audience to participate and join the discussions online.
