      Call for papers
      International workshop
      Center for Ethnic and Nationalism Studies
      Ivanovo State University
      May 21-22, 2009, Ivanovo-Plyos (Russia)

      The bear has been used as an allegory for Russia for centuries; it is
      a popular symbol of the country thus far. This image is embodied in
      satirical graphics, political rhetoric, journalism, and literature. In
      the XX century it spread widely in Russia, too, especially in the
      Post-Soviet time.

      The workshop will focus on the following questions:
      • What is the history of the image of the Russian Bear?
      • What meanings `the Russian Bear' receives in the Russian and foreign
      • How identity politics of Russian nationalism exploits this image?
      • How `the Russian Bear' is used in the
      legitimization/delegitimization of political authority in Russia?
      • How does the `bear metaphor' influence the perception of Russia in
      the world and the process of the European integration?

      Specialists in such fields of knowledge as history, cultural studies,
      sociology, philology, political studies, international relations, and
      linguistics are welcome to apply for participation in the workshop.

      Languages of the workshop: Russian, English. Number of participants: 25.

      Please send your abstract (up to 300 words) and personal details
      (Name, Current institutional affiliation, Title/position, E-mail
      address) by December 1, 2008 via email to the following address

      AWARDS for Best Doctoral Student Papers

      SCREENING of Recent Films and Documentaries

      The ASN Convention, the most attended international and
      inter-disciplinary scholarly gathering of its kind, welcomes proposals
      on a wide range of topics related to national identity, nationalism,
      ethnic conflict, state-building and the study of empires in
      Central/Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Balkans, Eurasia,
      and adjacent areas. Disciplines represented include political science,
      history, anthropology, sociology, international studies, security
      studies, economics, geography and geopolitics, sociolinguistics,
      psychology, and related fields.

      The Convention also features a section devoted to theoretical
      approaches to nationalism, from any of the disciplines listed above.
      The papers in this section need not be grounded in an area of the
      former Communist bloc usually covered by ASN, provided that the issues
      examined are relevant to a truly
      comparative understanding of nationalism-related issues. In this vein,
      we are welcoming theory-focused and comparative proposals, rather than
      specific case studies from outside Central/Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
      A dozen panels are normally featured in the Nationalism section.

      In the wake of the dramatic events that have unfolded in late summer
      2008, the Convention will also present a special section on "The War
      in Georgia and its Implications". The Convention is inviting paper,
      panel, roundtable, or special presentation proposals on various
      aspects of the conflict, as it relates to Georgia, the South Caucasus,
      the North Caucasus, Ukraine, the "frozen" conflicts, Russian
      nationalism, Russophone minorities in the "near abroad", domestic
      politics, the Fate of the "Coloured" Revolutions, NATO enlargement,
      US-Europe-Russia relations, the European Union and related topics. A
      special section will also be devoted to "The Independence of Kosovo
      and its Implications", with emphasis on Balkans post-war
      reconstruction, international law, self-determination, ethnic
      conflicts, minority rights, regional security and so forth.

      Since 2005, the ASN Convention has acknowledged excellence in graduate
      studies research by offering Awards for Best Doctoral Student Papers
      in five sections: Russia/Ukraine/Caucasus, Central Asia/Eurasia,
      Central Europe, Balkans, and Nationalism Studies.

      The winners at the 2008 Convention were Jesse Driscoll (Stanford U,
      Political Science) for Russia/Ukraine/Caucasus, Sarah Cameron
      (History, Yale U) and Kristin Fabbe (Political Science, MIT, US) for
      Central Asia/Eurasia/Turkey, Helena Toth (Harvard U, History) for
      Central Europe, Valentina Burrai (UC London, UK, Political Science)
      for the Balkans, and Lee Seymour (Northwestern U, Political Science)
      for Nationalism Studies. Doctoral student applicants whose proposals
      are accepted for the 2009 Convention, who have not defended their
      dissertation by 1 November 2008, and whose papers are delivered by the
      deadline, will automatically be considered for the awards.

      The 2009 Convention is also inviting submissions for documentaries or
      feature films made within the past few years and available in DVD
      format (either NTSC or PAL). Most films selected for the Convention
      will be screened during regular panel slots and will be followed by a
      discussion moderated by an academic expert. Films on the 2008 Program
      included Milosevic On Trial (Denmark, 2007), Nanking (US, 2007),
      Around Mostar, the Bridge and Bruce Lee (Italy, 2007), Yippee (US,
      2007) and The More You Speak, The More You Cry (Greece, 2007).

      The 2009 Convention invites proposals for INDIVIDUAL PAPERS or PANELS.
      A panel includes a chair, three presentations based on written papers,
      and a discussant. Proposals using an innovative format are encouraged.
      Examples of new formats include a roundtable on a new book, in which
      the author is being engaged by three discussants (twelve book panels
      were featured in the 2008 Convention); a debate between two panelists
      over a critical research or policy question, following rules of public
      debating; or special presentations based on original papers where the
      number of discussants is equal to or greater than the number of

      The 2008 Convention is also welcoming offers to serve as DISCUSSANT on
      a panel to be created by the program committee from individual paper
      proposals. The application to be considered as discussant can be
      self-standing, or accompanied by an individual paper proposal.

      2009 annual conference: "Race, Labor, and the City: Crises Old and New."

      The Labor and Working-Class History Association (LAWCHA) and the Fund
      for Labor Culture and History (Laborlore Conversations IV)

      Dates: Thursday, 28 May - Sunday, 31 May, 2009
      Location: Roosevelt University, 430 S. Michigan Avenue, Chicago

      As Chicago developed into a metropolis, it became a city "proud to be
      Hog Butcher, Tool Maker, Stacker of Wheat, Player with Railroads and
      Freight Handler to the Nation." Control over these and other jobs over
      the past two centuries also provoked the formation of organized labor,
      civil rights, and other working-class movements. Meeting in Chicago,
      Carl Sandburg's "City of Big Shoulders," this joint conference aims to
      bring together academics, activists, and other enthusiasts of labor
      history and culture.

      All topics related to working-class life and history are welcome but
      we especially encourage proposals concerning the urban
      interconnections between work, migration, and culture. This includes
      studies of historical and contemporary working-class movements for
      economic and racial justice, analysis of struggles over gendered urban
      spaces, Latino immigration and transnational labor, and developments
      in working-class city life and leisure. While this conference is in
      Chicago, we welcome proposals that address urban working-class life
      around the globe.

      Proposals for panels should include a one-page summary, with a list of
      presenters and their topics, and brief bios and/or vitas. We encourage
      informal presentations, and discourage the reading of papers.

      Deadline: Submissions for a single paper or a panel are due no later
      than 1 December, 2008 and applicants will be contacted by 15 January,

      Others sponsors for the conference include The Chicago Center for
      Working-Class Studies, UNITE-HERE, Chicago Jobs With Justice, and the
      Association for the Study of African American Life and History-Chicago

      Convenient and low-cost housing will be available by reservation only
      at the University Center.

      Call for Papers: Socially Sustainable Development in Russia

      Application Deadline: 1 December 2008

      The Kennan Institute is pleased to announce a new series of workshops
      on "Socially Sustainable Development in Russia." All modern states
      face the challenge of promoting economic development while ensuring
      the social sustainability of that development. Economic progress and
      business interests compete with other interests of society as a whole,
      such as protecting the environment and other social needs like
      education, health care, and pensions—commonly referred to as the
      social safety net. Russia is confronted by additional interrelated
      challenges that further complicate this competition of economic and
      social interests. How Russia handles these challenges will prove
      significant in determining Russia's relative economic and political
      position in the world.

      The first of these challenges is overcoming the legacies of the Soviet
      era and the economic unravelling of the 1990s. The Soviet social
      safety net was largely undone during the 1990s, and the fight to
      replace the various components of that safety net is still underway
      between the branches of government, and between the state and the
      private sector. The second challenge is closely related; inequality,
      both between groups in society (social inequality) and between and
      within regions (spatial inequality), is a key issue that, if left
      unaddressed, could challenge the stability of the state and society.
      Further complicating Russia's task are alarming demographic trends.
      With the Russian population declining by about 700,000 people each
      year, there is a very real concern that in the future Russia may lack
      the population to sustain its economy, its military, and even its
      territorial integrity. Finally, the Russian government has stated its
      intention to balance its extraordinary wealth in energy and natural
      resources with the need to develop a post-industrial economy. Yet the
      resurgence of the state in the economy is restraining the growth of
      other new businesses in precisely those knowledge-based industries
      that Russia will need.

      The Workshop Series is designed to serve as a forum in which junior
      scholars from a variety of disciplines discuss different aspects of
      research topics, share research findings, and provide policy
      recommendations. Participants in the series will explore the ways in
      which policymakers and practitioners can find mutually beneficial
      dialogue with academics. These workshops will be led by human
      geographer Michael Bradshaw, University of Leicester, U.K. and Chatham
      House, London, and will bring together a dozen U.S. researchers from
      various disciplines with recent field experience for two meetings.

      The first workshop will take place in early 2009, and will serve as a
      forum for the participants to present their current research. Themes
      identified at the first workshop will serve as the basis for new or
      revised research to be completed by the second meeting in Fall 2009.
      Key policy actors such as World Bank and U.S. Department of State
      officials will be brought into dialogue with the workshop participants
      at the second meeting.

      Selection for the workshop series will be based on an open national

      Participation in the series is limited to U.S. citizens and permanent
      residents only. Applicants should be at the post-doctoral level
      (pre-tenure) or be Ph.D. candidates who have completed field research
      for their dissertations. For non-academics, an equivalent degree of
      professional achievement is expected. The workshop series is
      interdisciplinary. Any area of social science or humanities research
      that focuses on issues of economic development and social
      sustainability in Russia is welcome. The Kennan Institute will provide
      per diem costs and travel support for workshop participants.

      Deadline: Interested applicants should submit an abstract (fewer than
      1000 words) of their current research, a current CV, and two letters
      of recommendation to:

      Economic Development and Social Sustainability in Russia Workshop,
      Kennan Institute/Woodrow Wilson Center,
      One Woodrow Wilson Plaza,
      1300 Pennsylvania Ave., NW,
      Washington, DC 20004-3027.

      Abstracts and resumes may be sent by email to: Joseph Dresen
      (joseph.dresen@...). Recommendation letters must be sent
      by mail. All application materials must be in English and must be
      received by 1 December 2008.

      When writing your proposal, please keep in mind that the objective of
      these workshops is to shed new light on the issue of Russian economic
      development and the social consequences of that development. What is
      happening on the ground in Russia? Are problem areas being recognized
      and addressed, either by federal or local government agencies or the
      private sector? Issues of particular interest include economic
      diversification and small/medium business development, infrastructure
      issues, social safety net issues, and social/spatial inequality.

      The "Socially Sustainable Development in Russia " Workshop is
      supported by the Program of Research and Training on Eastern Europe
      and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (Title VIII).

      International Graduate Student Conference on the Cold War 2009


      Three partner institutions the Cold War Studies Centre at LSE IDEAS,
      the George Washington University Cold War Group (GWCW), the Center for
      Cold War Studies (CCWS) of the University of California Santa Barbara,
      are pleased to announce their 2009 International Graduate Student
      Conference on the Cold War, to take place at the London School of
      Economics on 24-26 April, 2009.

      The conference is an excellent opportunity for graduate students to
      present papers and receive critical feedback from peers and experts in
      the field. We encourage submissions by graduate students working on
      any aspect of the Cold War, broadly defined. Of particular interest
      are papers that make use of newly available primary sources.

      Deadline: A two-page proposal and a brief academic C.V. (in Word or
      PDF format), should be submitted to IDEAS.cwc2009@... by 25
      January 2009 to be considered.

      Notification of acceptance will be made by 24 February. Successful
      applicants will be expected to email their papers by 24 March. Further
      questions may be directed to the conference coordinator, Artemy
      Kalinovsky, at the aforementioned e-mail address.

      The conference sessions will be chaired by prominent faculty members
      from GW, UCSB, LSE and elsewhere. The accommodation cost of student
      participants will be covered by the organizers (from 24-26 April), but
      students will need to cover the costs of their travel to London.

      In 2003, GW and UCSB first joined their separate spring conferences,
      and two years later, LSE became a co-sponsor. The three cold war
      centers now hold a jointly sponsored conference each year, alternating
      among the three campuses. For more information on our three programs,

      The impact of 1989 on Europe, East and West

      We are seeking essayistic reflections as well as research and review
      articles that address the impact of the events of 1989 (revolutions in
      CEE, break up of the USSR, China after Tiananmen, new world order,
      end of history etc.) on Europe, East and West. In breaking with the
      prevalent regional focus of transition-cum-transformation studies, we
      wish to examine the wider impact on Europe, particularly on the
      formerly Western half of Europe and on a variety of European and
      transatlantic projects begun before 1989 such as the EU, NATO, CSCE
      etc. Also particularly welcome are comparative studies that
      simultaneously encompass cases from the former Eastern and Western Europe.

      This call for papers is embedded in ongoing research, conference and
      publishing projects of the Research Network 1989. Among these are: -

      § A conference on the impact of 1989 on Europe, which is to be held at
      the European University Institute in November 2008;
      § A working paper series as well as a publishing programme (books);
      § Seed monies to develop a research agenda.

      A good selection of information is available online and interested
      authors are asked to have a look at these materials.

      Responses are requested in the form of an abstract by 5 October 2008.
      One page with contact details is sufficient in the first instance.
      Authors are encouraged to indicate how their ideas are relevant to a
      wider audience of scholars and of the public.

      Please email your expression of interest to: chris.armbruster@...

      Some research questions as food for thought:
      - If 1989 (and 1991) signifies the breakdown of the Soviet empire, the
      collapse of state socialism and the end of the Cold War, how did this
      impact Western Europe?
      - Does the time between 1989 and 2004, with the consolidation of an
      enlarged European Union and newly emergent European configurations in
      areas as diverse as democracy and higher education
      constitute a distinctive period of European history and transformation?
      - While the transformation from 1989 to 2004 is relatively well
      researched for Eastern Europe, if within a one-sided regional
      framework of transition or transformation studies, what do we know
      about the
      co-transformation of the existing European Union member states and
      their societies?

      Representations of Nazism in the Modern World


      Editors are seeking contributions to a collection, provisionally
      entitled: Monsters in the Mirror: Representations of Nazism in
      Post-War Popular Culture. The collection aims to bring together an
      interdisciplinary range of studies on the perennial fascination with
      all things `Nazi' in the modern world. As teachers of the history of
      Nazi Germany, we are astonished by the lack of critical attention paid
      to the proliferation of Nazi symbols, Nazi culture, Nazi ideology, and
      characterizations of Hitler in the post-war era. Nazidom remains an
      obsession for many even though more than sixty years have passed since
      the demise of Hitler's regime. The archetypal image of `the
      Nazi'–jackboots and all–is commensurate with `ultimate evil' in many
      cultural representations and in the general public understanding. In
      other representations, a glorified acontextual idea of the Nazi past
      is fetishized and glamorized. In advertising, `Hitler' sells almost as
      well as sex. We wish to investigate these representations and the
      obsessions that surround them and ask the following questions: Why has
      Nazidom become a cultural constant and a frame of reference so
      frequently drawn upon that it is commonplace? How has the Nazi past
      been acontextually appropriated for all manner of cultural and
      political ends? In what ways are Nazi references part of every-day
      culture? This collection seeks to fill a major gap in the academic
      literature on the legacies of Nazi Germany and the politics of popular

      Deadline: To this end, we call for interested academics to submit a
      500-word abstract to us by 1 November 2008 (address below). Please
      include a brief bio and a full CV. We would expect full papers (9,000
      words, including references) by 1 June 2009. We encourage submissions
      from a range of fields including, but not restricted to, history,
      cultural studies, music, film and media studies, literary studies, and

      International Political Anthropology

      International Political Anthropology is a new interdisciplinary,
      peer-reviewed journal that will be published bi-annually. It provides
      a forum for interdisciplinary and comparative scholarship, addressing
      problems and concerns of the contemporary political world through the
      prism of anthropologically based approaches. It gives voice to
      conceptual and methodological creativity, linking the study of
      politics to perspectives and tools drawn from disciplines, subject
      areas, and modes of enquiry that were long considered irrelevant to
      the study of politics proper.

      International Political Anthropology invites contributions that link
      contemporary problems of politics to the comparative analysis of
      civilisations, mythology, archaeology, history of the longue durée,
      religion, symbolism, violence, or political spirituality. We also
      encourage contributions that thematise the pre-political links between
      human beings and authority in themes such as gift-giving, trust,
      beauty, truth, and truth-telling. We are similarly interested in
      submissions that connect analysis of historical crises with the
      interpretation of meaning as a central aspect of the formation of
      leaders, political consciousness, or social cohesion.

      International Political Anthropology recognises that institutional
      accounts of politics within the frame of the state and in the
      relations between states have exhausted their capability to provide
      meaningful accounts of
      contemporary events, such as the collapse of communism and the end of
      the Cold War, the crisis of the nation-state, the proliferation of new
      forms of violence and war, the resurgence of religion as a political
      force, or the acute and seemingly worldwide crisis of political
      leadership, all relating to the ongoing globalization processes. While
      the contemporary study of politics is predominantly contained within
      the temporal and mental horizon of the Enlightenment, assuming that
      modernity can be studied on its own terms, this journal wishes to
      approach contemporary problems with a genuine sense for expanding
      horizons to both non-Western and pre-modern, even ancient political
      societies. It aims to root the understanding of contemporary problems
      in a range of traditions and streams of thought that encompass
      Antiquity, Renaissance, early modernity, and theoretical attempts in
      the course of the 20th century that worked towards bringing these
      threads together. Recognizing that many of the greatest figures of
      political thought lived through periods of crisis or dissolution of
      order, this journal thus opens up possibilities for an experiential as
      opposed to a 'scholastic' type of theory building, where experience
      shapes political consciousness, interpretive Judgments, and

      Each issue of the Journal is divided into three sections:
      1) free-standing articles,
      2) a Symposium or reflections, and commentaries relating to a
      specific theme, and
      3) book reviews, review articles, and comments to the Journal.

      We happily accept proposals for all three sections, although book
      reviews and review articles will normally be solicited by the Chief

      While the working language of the Journal is English, our explicit aim
      is to incorporate and disseminate scholarship produced outside the
      English-speaking world. In short, we are interested in contributions that
      discuss innovative scholarship from any corner of the academic
      landscape. The editorial board of the Journal of International
      Political Anthropology is composed of leading scholars within the
      above mentioned disciplines and approaches.

      Submissions should be sent electronically to Harald Wydra.

      Studies in East European Thought

      Editor-in-Chief: Edward M. Swiderski


      Following its demise of Marxism-Leninism throughout the former Soviet
      empire and its satellites, scholars in these lands were faced with the
      task of 'reconstructing' the conceptual foundations, research
      programs, institutional settings, as well as the very ethos of
      intellectual practices, in particular in the humanities studies and
      social science.

      Today, nearly two decades after Gorbachev implemented the perestroika
      and New Thinking, it is time to begin to review the path and current
      state of this 'reconstruction'. Questions to ask include: What is the
      state of 'theory' and 'method' in the human and social sciences? Have
      these disciplines construed discourses and 'ontological commitments'
      in the investigation of social being, culture, political processes,
      etc. that are remote from the former worldview? Do theory and method
      in these disciplines harmonize today with the traditions and
      perspectives of mainstream Western social scientific and humanities
      discourses, or are they orthogonal to the salient issues in the
      latter? How have the changes in question occurred?; what kinds of
      conceptual resources have been implemented?; to what effects at the
      institutional level (e.g. in teaching curricula, research projects,
      including national programs, publications, including translations,
      etc.)? Are 'scientific communities' (communities of discourse)
      thriving throughout the formerly communist world? Who are the leading

      The editors of Studies in East European Thought (SEET) invite
      contributions from scholars concerned with such issues. Papers will be
      grouped and published according to theme or rubrics in successive
      issues of the journal.

      Themes of particular relevance for which the editors invite
      contributions include:

      * social theory, including political theory foundational questions:
      the concepts of the social, the cultural, the political, the concept
      of agency, etc. following the demise of Marxism-Leninism
      * foundational questions in metaphysics and epistemology
      * the standing of 'culture theory' (e.g., Russian 'kul'turologija')
      * the reception of Western theories and methods as well as
      intellectual traditions
      * the reassessment of 'local' intellectual traditions ethics, moral theory
      * theology and religious studies
      * aesthetics, the philosophy of art and art criticism
      * historiography and philosophy of history
      * styles of thought, the 'culture' of intellectual practices, the
      question of 'continuity' (e.g. Russian 'philosophical culture')
      * the sources of normativity in the civic sphere (e.g.

      Working Paper Series, Research Network 1989

      Dear colleagues,

      With hindsight it seems clear that the social and cultural sciences
      fared no better in anticipating the consequences than the causes of
      1989. There is an irony to this insofar as many of those who, after
      1989, anticipated West-East divergence, had in earlier times posited
      East-West convergence. These successive theoretical and conceptual
      failures in understanding contemporary change will preoccupy the
      scholars of the next generation. It will be interesting to explore in
      how far the discursive Zeitgeist lets scholars adopt conceptual
      frameworks a priori, to which empirical evidence is then simply
      assimilated. While the earlier faulty anticipation of convergence was
      based on the notion of modernization, the later and equally faulty
      anticipation of divergence was based on the notion of civilization.

      We may remember that knowledgeable international observers, in East
      and West, anticipated that transition would be painful and
      contradictory and was likely to fail: on logical and historical
      grounds (e.g. Dahrendorf, Elster, Offe, Przeworski, Stark, Sztompka).
      It was noted that a synchronized transition of politics, economics and
      culture was needed.

      A. The general impossibility of synchronized transition in politics,
      economics and culture was assumed. A dilemma of simultaneity was
      declared, pointing to unresolved issues of territory, constitution and
      B. Particularly the cultural legacy, variously analysed as
      civilizational gap, unwanted modernity and homo sovieticus or as the
      return of the repressed, i.e. ethnic nationalism and internecine
      warfare, was seen as undermining economic and political transition.
      C. Path-dependency was invoked to argue that co-ordinated and
      simultaneous change across whole societies is impossible.

      Yet, holistic reform is exactly what was attempted and happened in
      Eastern Europe. Twenty years after 1989 there can be no doubt that
      those Eastern European countries that underwent a negotiated,
      non-violent revolution (e.g. Central Europe, Baltic States, Slovenia)
      have largely achieved the intended outcome: consolidating
      constitutional democracy, achieving high growth rates and integrating
      into the trans-national flows of capital, labour, goods and services.

      I would be interested to hear from those interested in re-assessing
      the causes and consequences of 1989 in CEE, the former Soviet Union
      and worldwide (including the former West).
