Call for Papers
New Perspectives in Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies

The Havighurst Center for Russian and Post-Soviet Studies at Miami University welcomes applications from advanced graduate students and recent doctoral recipients (ABD to 5 years beyond Ph.D.) for the annual international Young Researchers Conference. The conference will take place from March 31-April 3 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.

This call for papers aims for a broad range of proposals with a focus on Russia, Eastern Europe, and/or Eurasia. Papers will be pre-circulated and read by the conference participants, Havighurst faculty, and the key-note speakers. Because the theme is an open one, selection will be based not just on the quality of the proposals but on the interdisciplinary themes that emerge from these proposals. This conference offers participants the opportunity to workshop their recent research.

The Havighurst Center will cover room and board and the cost of an excursion in the area. Limited travel funds are available.

The deadline for the submission of the proposals is December 1st. Please send a one page abstract (no more than 500 words) and one-page CVs to the havighurstcenter@miamioh.edu with the subject 2022YRCproposal.
