Annual Europe-Asia / Osteuropa Lecture Competition
The journals Europe-Asia Studies (Glasgow, Scotland, UK) and Osteuropa (Aachen, Germany) invite submissions for the fourth
annual europe-asia / osteuropa lecture
to be delivered in May 2001 in Aachen/Cologne and at the Institute of Central and East European Studies, University of Glasgow. The name of the lecture refers to Europe-Asia Studies, formerly Soviet Studies, and to Osteuropa, the two major international journals in the field of Russian, Central and East European studies. The lecture will subsequently be published in both journals.
The goal of the lecture is to spot young and particularly promising researchers in the field of Central and East European studies (social scientists and historians) working in these countries and to present them to the worldwide academic community involved in ‘transition studies’ and history.
Europe-Asia Studiesand Osteuropa invite young scholars (approximately 28 to 40 years old) educated and resident in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe (including the Baltic states, Russia and other CIS countries) to submit a Draft Lecture no longer than 2,000 words which is to be the basis for the lecture to be delivered in May 2001 in Germany and in Glasgow. This Draft Lecture can be a summary of recent work and should particularly highlight creative research tools or techniques, new theory or creative use of archival material by the applicant.
Since the lecture will be presented in English, the applicant must have a good command of spoken English.
The author of the winning application will be invited to deliver the lecture in Glasgow and Aachen/Cologne and will stay in each of these for three days; travel and accommodation expenses will be met by the two journals.
Applications should include (1) the Draft Lecture, (2) a one-page curriculum vitae including date of birth, (3) a full list of publications of the applicant (each of these in 4 copies) and his or her mailing address, preferably including email and fax number. Applications are to be sent to:
The Editor, Europe-Asia Studies
Institute of Central and East European Studies,
The University of Glasgow,
Hetherington Building, Bute Gardens,
Glasgow, Scotland G12 8RS, UK.
Applications sent by fax or email will not be accepted. The deadline for applications is 1 January 2001. The winning applicant will be informed by 1 March 2001.
