Call for Papers for the 22nd Annual Aleksanteri Conference

We welcome submissions to the 22nd Annual Aleksanteri Conference

This year’s conference will address changes in the relationships within and between the former communist countries of the Global East, by which we mean the region that has been labelled as post/former -Soviet, -socialist, -communist, -imperial.

In particular, we encourage colleagues to propose panels and papers that address the conference’s principal themes of legal choices, political transformations, and carceral practices. We also welcome submissions on recent research across a broad range of disciplines, including (but not limited to) law, geography, politics, history, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, literature and language, and international relations.

Deadline for submissions: May 1, 2023
