CFP: The First Wave of Russian Emigration

Deadline: October 26 2020

The Research Centre for Russian Studies and Methodology invites you to participate in a series of symposia on The First Wave of Russian Emigration, the opening event of which will take place on November 13, 2020, online.

The aim of the opening symposium “The First Wave of Russian Emigration: Focal Points of Research” will be to explore the range of research topics regarding the first wave of Russian emigration with an interdisciplinary approach.

Experts studying the first wave of Russian emigration face a multifaceted set of phenomena, which can be approached from various angles. Besides researching the lives of individual émigrés and personal decision-making strategies, it is possible to group émigrés by geographic, professional, and ideological factors. The examination of these groups, as well as emigree institutions, scientific schools and press may help exploring the dynamics and collective identity of émigré communities.

CFP: Literary Classics and Intellectual Autonomy in the Soviet World from 1920s to 1980s

Deadline: November 30, 2020

****
Online Conference: March 26th 2021
****
This one-day conference aims to explore how classic works of “foreign” literature were experienced by different groups of readers in the Soviet Union from the 1920s to the 1980s. For many Soviet citizens, regardless of their social status and political views, fictional worlds from bygone centuries and alien cultures formed an alternative reality that allowed them to escape the difficulties of everyday life. The translation and publication of classics helped those intellectuals who did not toe the party line to survive, both physically and morally. By attempting to use the concept of world literature for propagandist aims the state unwittingly created a zone of intellectual autonomy that it could not penetrate. We are particularly interested in papers that interrogate ideological positions and interpretative models, regardless of whether they aim to address institutional or individual aspects of literary reception.

The Executive Committee of the 7th International Conference on Language Documentation & Conservation (ICLDC 7) has put together this FAQ to address questions that we have received concerning our Call for Workshops and Talk Story sessions (deadline August 1, 2020) and our General Session Call for Papers (deadline September 30, 2020) as well as questions regarding Registration fees. The Executive Committee will continue to update this FAQ and our website as more information becomes available. 

Frequently Asked Questions for ICLDC 7

  1. What is the schedule for ICLDC 7 going to be like? How will ICLDC 7 accommodate presenters and participants from different time zones?

The ICLDC Executive Committee aims to make the conference as accessible as possible to as many different people as possible. So, we are planning to have a staggered schedule with two blocks each day of the conference. That is, we will hold a morning block in Hawai‘i, which will be convenient for participants from the Americas, Europe, Africa, and potentially Australia, and an evening block in Hawai‘i, which will be convenient for Asia, Australia, Europe, and Africa. While this schedule provides additional challenges for the conference organizers, we hope that it will encourage broad international participation. We feel that holding ICLDC7 virtually is an opportunity for many people to present and attend the conference. We do not want the schedule to prevent anyone from attending.
