“On the Edge”:  An Interdisciplinary Forum on Innovation, Modernity, and Trends
The University of Virginia, Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures
March 29 – 30, 2019

The modern world is punctuated by periods of innovation, revolution, and change. As we conceive of monumental breakthroughs throughout history and across cultures, we look to individuals and movements that have challenged the status quo and broke with accepted norms and traditions. This forum is dedicated to challenging contemporary and historical perceptions and values, identifying outlying ideas and trends, and investigating tensions between the old and the new. How do emerging trends, innovations, and new social outlooks affect our thinking and our society? How do revolutions and uprisings help us understand our particular milieus and our global world? What are the interrelationships between political, economic, scientific, and social change?

Contact: Please send questions slavicforum2019@gmail.com. Further information about the conference, SGSS, and the UVA Slavic Department can be found at slavic.as.virginia.edu.
