The year 2014 marks twenty-five years since the end of Communism in Central-Eastern Europe (CEE) and ten years after the enlargement of the European Union into the region. To mark this event Debatte: Journal of Contemporary Central and Eastern Europe is planning to hold a conference on 22-23 November at Warsaw University entitled ‘Crises and Resistance in Central and Eastern Europe’.
These anniversaries are significant landmarks in the history of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the continent as a whole. However, even more importantly, they occur during a time of intense economic and political difficulties in Europe. The economic crisis has brought a prolonged economic downturn that has worsened the living standards of its populations and brought political uncertainty and instability.
The conference will consist of two plenary sessions together with a series of workshops held in parallel.
Guidelines for Submission:
If you would like to propose a panel or offer a paper for a workshop then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Proposals for panels and abstracts of proposed papers must be received by 1 June 2014. Abstracts should be 300 words or less. When sending an abstract or proposal please include an e-mail address for correspondence.
We plan to publish at least one special issue of Debatte based on papers presented at the conference. If you would like your paper to be considered for publication in the journal please submit a full draft by 1 October 2014
The languages of the conference will be English and Polish and we will be arranging translation between these two languages at the conference. Abstracts and papers should be submitted in one of these two languages.
Admission to the conference will be free but we will be asking those with institutional support to pay a fee of £80.
