Conference: Overlapping Territories, Budapest

Student conference hosted by the History Department and Pasts, Central European University,
25-26 May 2010, Budapest

Open to: advanced undergraduate, Masters’ and doctoral students
Deadline:
10/04/2010

After 1989 there has been a sweeping wave of Europeanization, regionalization and supra-national integration involving the countries in Central and Eastern Europe. This, however, did not lead to the obliteration of conflicting historical myths, prejudices, and negative stereotypes, which survived and in many cases, paradoxically, became reinforced after most of these countries entered the Euro-Atlantic integration structures. It is obvious that much more institutional and intellectual investment is needed to challenge these perceptions and develop more integrative collective identity discourses.

Eligibility
The aim of the student workshop hosted by CEU is to bring together advanced undergraduate, Masters’ and doctoral students in comparative and transnational historical research also including boarder disciplines as historical sociology, historical anthropology, political thought, etc. The intention of the organizers is to facilitate a transnational dialogue among the participants and also to form a broader network of students interested in these themes and willing to be involved in further cooperation. (Collective applications for a joint panel are also encouraged)

The working language of the conference is English.

Application process
Applications for participation should include:
– a short CV,
– a 1-2 page long abstract of the prospective conference paper (20 minutes)
– an estimation of travel expenses.

The deadline of applications is 10 April 2010.

Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the organizers.

Queries and applications should be sent directly to the Conveners:
Constantin Iordachi (Associate Professor, History Department, CEU Budapest) [email protected])
Balázs Trencsényi (Assistant Professor, History Department, CEU Budapest) [email protected])

  2. Hello, I am Sanjar Hakimov, from Uzbekistan. I am 4th year student of World Languages University, doing my last year of studies. I am concerned with the following: A I eligible for applying it? Is there any selection process apart from the first documentation part?

    Thank You in advance.

    1. According to the info we have this event is opened for:"advanced undergraduate, Masters’ and doctoral students in comparative and transnational historical research also including boarder disciplines as historical sociology, historical anthropology, political thought, etc." Which means, being 4th year student gives you eligibility to participate but the field of your studies are not very compatible with their request. Whatsoever, I suggest you to send your paper abstract anyway, and who knows, you might have luck.
