"Memory and the Present in Postsocialist Cultures"
Reed College, Portland, Oregon
February 13-14, 2004
SOYUZ invites paper submissions for its 2004 meeting. Presentations may be from any discipline (anthropology, sociology, folklore, political science, history, literary scholarship, etc.) and may focus on any aspect of social life - religion, politics, economics and exchange, kinship and the family, gender, language, literature, the arts - but papers must strive to creatively and successfully combine solid ethnographic and/or empirical evidence with theory. We will be able to make travel subsidies available for up to two foreign presenters (from the region).
SOYUZ is an interdisciplinary research network for postsocialist studies (http://www.abdn.ac.uk/soyuz/). The symposium, held annually since 1992, is the site of cutting edge presentations from some of the most exciting thinkers within the subfield, and at the same time an intimate forum where scholars can exchange ideas and engage in dialogue.
Please send an abstract (no longer than 500 words) and a brief CV to Marko Zivkovic, via mail or email, by November 1, 2003.
