CFP: Deportation in East Central Europe in the 20th century – snapshots of invisible incarceration

Deadline: December 20, 2021

The Balkan History Association is preparing a volume dedicated to deportations in the twentieth century with a special emphasis on people deported as a result of totalitarianism. Hiding under the mask of an administrative measure, the authorities found the perfect way to punish civilians. Those persecuted (whether because of their ideas, ethnicity, religion or social standing) had to pay a huge price for not coping with the views of the authorities. Considered to be “dangerous elements”, deportees were forced to leave their homes together with their families, being allowed to take with them only few goods, their houses and possession being confiscated by the State. No matter of gender and age, men, women, children and old people were forced to start a one-way journey, in trains together with animals, towards an uncertain destination. Living under the blue sky for days, the deportees learned to build a new life for themselves. The conditions under which they had to live were harsh, many of those deported dying from starvation or disease. Somehow they found the strength not to give up and lived to tell their memories thus providing a better insight in the depth of this chaos.

CFP: Parks in the Balkan Capitals: Leisure, Urban Impact, Monuments, Stories, and Significance

Deadline: February 1, 2022

Call for book chapters: Parks in the Balkan Capitals: Leisure, Urban Impact, Monuments, Stories, and Significance

One of the most powerful resources of a city is the park. Parks represent a place of relaxation for the citizens, protect the city from pollution, have impact on the urban aspect of the city, host events, represent the identity of the city and the intrusion of nature into urban life, and inspire writers or painters.

The Balkan History Association and the Institute of Balkan Studies and Centre of Tracology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences are preparing a volume dedicated to parks in Balkan capitals – their stories, architecture, or significance for the community. Authors are invited to submit their paper proposals with special emphasis on parks with special significance for Balkan capitals; stories related to parks in Balkan capitals (literature, folklore, etc.); representation of parks in Balkan capitals in comics, cartoons, movies, or paintings; impact of parks on the urban aspect of Balkan capitals; impact of parks on the social life of Balkan capitals; historical monuments placed inside the parks in Balkan capitals; historical events and their impact on the evolution of parks in Balkan capitals; modernization of the Balkan capitals and how this changed the look of parks; and parks in Balkan capitals, in the collective memory of the community.

CFP: 2022 Midwest Slavic Conference

2022 Midwest Slavic Conference

April 1-3, 2022

Columbus, OH

The Midwest Slavic Association and The Ohio State University (OSU) Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (CSEEES) are pleased to announce the 2022 Midwest Slavic Conference to be held at OSU in Columbus, OH on April 1-3, 2022. The conference committee invites proposals for papers on all topics related to the Slavic, East European, and Eurasian world, particularly those that explore issues surrounding climate change: the usage and depletion of natural resources, environmental changes, as well as issues surrounding the changing climates in politics, society, and culture (eco-criticism, eco-poetics, etc.). How has climate change affected the way we live today and our vision of humanity’s future, and how might these issues have inadvertently impacted other climates? The conference theme of climate change will naturally tie some conversations to the present and future, but we welcome investigations of the past as well, in addition to papers that do not align with the theme.

CFP: Globalising the Avant-Garde

Deadline: January 15, 2022

The conference will reflect on the process of the globalisation of avant-gardes in the arts and literature, and on the situation of artistic avant-gardes in the context of globalisation more generally – technologically, economically, and politically. We invite papers on topics related to the avant-garde across all of the arts.  

From the point of view of the arts, artists and writers have promoted, through their travel and networking, cultural interchanges and transformations that often appear to challenge the boundaries of national identities and their accompanying official histories and institutions. The historical avant-garde has always presented itself as transgressive, yet at the same time has tended to be located within a European history and in the optic of a certain kind of idealism which places art itself at the apex of an implicitly Eurocentric view of societal and technological progress. As well as examining the transnational or supranational facets of artistic practice in its genuinely transgressive aspects, this conference will also ask in what ways modernity itself – in all of its economic, technological and geopolitical ramifications – has shaped the avant-garde and the varieties of its manifestations across the globe. This approach can complexify the narrative of the avant-garde.
