AABS 2020: New Directions in Baltic Studies

October 10, 2019

Charlotte, North Carolina
May 28–30, 2020


I’m Joseph Ellis, Vice President of Conferences, and conference organizer for AABS 2020. On behalf of the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies, I’m delighted to invite you to Charlotte, North Carolina (USA) May 28th-30th for our biennial meeting. The conference theme is “New Directions in Baltic Studies.” We encourage papers which explore new directions in the field: new and innovative research methods, case studies, pedagogy, and research areas. You will find the Call for Papers and all sorts of information about the conference here.

The conference will take place in the American South for the first time, in one of the nation’s fastest growing and most diverse cities. We encourage you to come for Baltic Studies and stay for Charlotte’s many attractions, including the Mint Museum, the Museum of the New South, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and our legendary Southern cuisine.

Hosted at Queens University – an idyllic liberal arts college just south of uptown Charlotte – the conference seeks to offer an intellectually enriching experience, and a good time as well.

So welcome y’all. Can’t wait to see you in May of next year.
