The Graduate Student Mid-Atlantic Conference for Eurasian Studies (MACES) aims to provide a public platform for rising experts in the field of Eurasian studies, further multidisciplinary academic discourse on Eurasia, and connect interdisciplinary student bodies. This year’s conference theme is “Transnational Flows in the Eurasian Space”. In modern Eurasia, the movement of people, wealth, and ideas across national borders is deeply shaped by the culture, politics, and economics of the region. Through understanding these movements, the conference seeks to shed light on the dynamism of Eurasian space. Participants are invited to explore any aspect of transnational flows in the region. For the purposes of the conference, “Eurasian space” is defined as post-Soviet space, Eastern Europe, Turkey, and Mongolia.
Graduate students at accredited universities of North America and past graduates for academic years 2014 and 2015 are eligible to present papers at the conference. To submit a paper for consideration, please send a CV and a 150-300 word abstract to [email protected]. Please save your files with either a .doc or .docx extension. Include your name and abstract title in the subject line of the email.
The conference organizers will be accepting abstracts until the January 15, 2016 deadline. Those selected to present will be notified by February 15, 2016.
