CFP: Let’s Get to Work: Bringing Labor History and the History of Science Together

Deadline: September 30, 2021

From the labor in laboratory to the science in scientific management, the histories of labor and science are marked by intimate connections—many of which still await reflection and historical analysis. To provide a forum for productive conversation between labor historians and historians of science and to help address the pressing scholarly and political questions they share, the Science History Institute’s 2022 Gordon Cain Conference will explore the entanglements of science and labor as they have emerged around the globe between the 16th century and today.

CFP: 4th CEENASWE Conference: Occultism and Politics in East-Central Europe

Deadline: July 30, 2021

Since the nineteenth century, East-Central Europe has experienced rapid social, political, and economic changes, which caused transformation and transformations in local societies. Rising nationalism culminating in the Revolutionary year 1848, echoes of the Romantic movement, ongoing industrialisation, First World War, the emergence of national states and disintegration of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, later followed by the World War Two and establishment of the socialist regimes represent some of the key milestones the region went through. New sciences emerged, and local intellectuals also tried to cope with the impetuses from the discoveries in the Orient. Since the mid-nineteenth century, the rise of occultism and its further spread throughout Europe represented a peculiar reaction to some mentioned milestones. Local states dealt with these occult and esoteric movements differently, from suppression to silent support, and the movements themselves had various ideas about the meaning and aims of nations. We wish to investigate the links between the state, power, and occult and esoteric ideas, movements, and key figures more closely in this conference.

CFP: 22nd Biennial Conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore

Deadline: October 1, 2021

The 22nd biennial conference on Balkan and South Slavic Linguistics, Literature and Folklore will be held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, OH on Thursday April 7 – Sunday April 10, 2022.

Our current plan is to hold the conference as an in-person event, though we recognize that there are possible problems, even in these days of greater openness, associated with an in-person event, especially issues for everyone with regard to access to travel funding and for those coming from abroad with regard to visas and potential travel restrictions.  The Organizing Committee will periodically assess the situation and may ultimately opt for an all-virtual or a hybrid-style conference depending on local and global circumstances; most importantly, we will keep participants informed as to the modality to be employed for the conference.

CFP: AATSEEL Stream: Othering and Authority in Slavic Studies

Deadline: August 15, 2021

From what scholarly position is the Slavic world studied? The Cold War bifurcated scholarship into pro- and anti-Soviet stances. Then and later, scholars in the Anglo-American world tended to imagine scholarship produced in the region as offering simply data, to be theorized by scholars elsewhere (perhaps after it has been dissociated from the theoretical frame in which it was presented, which is imagined as naively politicized). This attitude is hard to sustain given the increasing scholarly interaction between scholars who speak English and those who speak the languages of the region, the rise of scholars from the region in English-speaking academia, and the calls throughout the academy to “decolonize theory” and acknowledge that Western European and North American epistemologies and ontologies are not necessarily universally valid. Papers in this stream consider the conflicts and conversations in Slavic studies between methodologies and theories from varied locations.

CFP: International Workshop “Kojève: Here and Now”

Deadline: June 15, 2021

Keynote Speakers: Boris Groys (NYU) and Massimo Palma (Naples)
September 1-3, 2021 (Online)

Alexandre Kojève is widely recognized as one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century. Indeed, the breadth of his work, which spans from a phenomenology of religion, through theoretical considerations on modern art, to one of the first philosophical treatments of quantum physics, would seem to justify this reputation. Regardless, the reception of his thought tends to be restricted to a single dimension concerning his lectures on Hegel and their ongoing influence. As a result, most accounts of Kojève’s philosophy begin and end with an analysis of his commentary on Hegel—a tendency that, until quite recently, has gone largely unchallenged.
