The Central Eurasian Studies Society invites submissions relating to all aspects of humanities and social science scholarship. The geographic domain of Central Eurasia encompasses Central Asia, the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Tibet, Mongolia, Siberia, Inner Asia, the Black Sea region, the Volga region, and East and Central Europe. Practitioners and scholars in all fields with an interest in this region are encouraged to participate.
In light of likely travel difficulties, papers and panels can be proposed in in-person and online formats. Preference will be given to in-person proposals, as fewer online panels can be accommodated (once accepted, in-person panels can be converted to online format, if travel difficulties interfere). Panels may be proposed in English, Russian or other languages; individual papers must be in English. Preference will be given to pre-formed panels. To connect with colleagues and plan a pre-formed panel, members are encouraged to post in the CESS Facebook Group.
The CESS Annual Conference in 2022 is being hosted by Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. The conference will run from 1pm on October 20 to 1pm on October 23, 2022 with pre-conference workshops on October 19 (morning and afternoon) and October 20 (morning).
The following types of proposals are acceptable for the Annual Conference: individual paper, pre-organized panel, author-critic forum for published books, book-in-progress panels for authors who wish to discuss their manuscripts ahead of submission, roundtable, and single session workshop.
