Call for Papers

We are seeking contributions from the humanities and the social sciences for a jointly organized PhD and post-doc workshop to be convened in Heidelberg. We are inviting abstracts of ongoing or recently concluded works in Eurasian Studies that include transnational perspectives and approaches. We seek applications that explore transcultural issues such as, for example, the symbolic exploitation of the ancient Silk Road for the new belt and road initiative, the impact of the initiative on collective identities, transcultural contacts and communication, political cooperation or confrontation, cultural work and attitudes, social engagement, narratives, changing senses of aesthetics, novel ways of cultural crossings and flows, and how these activities and attitudes challenge, unset or alter existing institutions, attitudes and practices. The principal language of the workshop is English.

Please send an abstract summarizing the research question, methods and results in a word document. At the top of the page put the (working) title of your thesis / project next to your name.

Deadline for submission: 25 February 2018

Submission to Ms Nora Bartels: nora.bartels@asia-europe.uni-heidelberg.de
