Call for Papers: European Society for Central Asian Studies Conference
November 14, 2018
Held at the University of Exeter (UK) from June 27th to 29th, 2019, the theme for the 16th annual conference is “The Globality of Central Asia.” We invite proposals for papers, panels, roundtables and sessions in non-traditional formats covering all aspects of Central Asian Studies across the humanities and social sciences.
We particularly encourage proposals which link Central Asia to its global context, historically and contemporaneously. We encourage studies of this geography which engage both territory, space and place. These may include the studies of Central Asia’s migrations and diaspora, its ethnic minority populations, its offshore and extraterritorial spaces, and its place in global and imperial histories. This globality may be visible in archaeologies, cultural studies and pre-modern histories, as well as in modern social, economic and political patterns across borders.
Our conference will assess globalizations from below as well as those from above; we therefore invite papers addressing the interpellation of localities and globalities: How are the individuals and communities of Central Asia related to global processes?
The deadline for both panel (in English or Russian) and paper (in English) submissions is November 14, 2018.
