Rhythms, Structures and Roads of Contemporary Siberia

Conference venue: Irkutsk, Listvianka
Period: May 17-20, 2018
Deadline for submitting papers: May 1, 2018

Description of the Conference

Fields: history, sociology, geography, anthropology, political science and other humanities and social sciences.
Participants: graduate students and early-career scholars who are working on research projects on Siberia based upon fieldwork, archival documents, interviews, memoirs, and other oral, written and visual sources about contemporary Siberia and its recent past.

Conference format:
10 minutes for a short paper presentation, then each paper will be discussed for the remained of an hour by other participants and experts (questions and suggestions to clarify research strategies, recommend research tools and sources, strengthen arguments and prepare text for publication).
We are planning to begin working on a collection of articles on contemporary Siberia to be published in 2019, so we consider this conference a first step of the book project and see participants as potential contributors to the book. Articles should be submitted by December 10, 2018.
