CONSERVATISM IN TRANSITION:
THE EUROPEAN TRADITION AND RUSSIAN EXPERIENCE
The project "Conservatism in transition: the European tradition and Russian experience", supported by CIVIC EDUCATIONAL PROJECT - RUSSIA, proposes to involve scholars into a discussion about historical roots of conservatism as a global phenomenon, as well as specific of conservative ideology in the various European countries. It is expected that the conference will promote an exchange of ideas, formulation of new estimations and development of the methodological approaches for researches on conservatism.
We wish to invite a wide circle of researchers. Historians and philosophers, from Russia and countries of East and Western Europe are invited. Working languages of the conference will be English and Russian
The project will be realised in two stages:

The participants can send articles up to 15 pages (MS Word format, font 14, and interval 1.5) and filled application form to our e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org till December 15th, 2001. All articles received will be placed on the web-site: http:\\conservatism.samara.ru The Internet-conference will be held onFebruary 20-21st, 2002. During these two days everyone can state his or her opinion about texts and take part in discussion on-line.
The second stage:
