Graduate Organization for the Study of Europe and Central Asia (GOSECA)

February 25th-26th, 2022

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Aneta Pavlenko

Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan

University of Oslo, Norway

Russia, Eastern Europe, and Central Asia have often been conceptualized as a single geopolitical unit due to the significance of the Soviet Union and its eventual disintegration. However, the twenty-first century has challenged essentializing conceptions of the region thanks to breakthroughs in technology and medicine, new regional conflicts, and globalization. Transformations in daily life, prompted by climate change and disaster, paradigm shifts in thought, and sweeping political revolution have molded individuals, nations, cultures, languages, and disciplines, and provoked intense social construction and reconstruction. For our 19th annual conference, GOSECA invites presentations exploring the themes of reconstruction and deconstruction, whether political, economic, linguistic, social, cultural, artistic, or any other kind.
