The Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies (AABS) conference will be held May 28th-30th 2020, in Charlotte, NC (USA) at Queens University. 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. Paper proposals will be accepted from faculty, other scholars and independent researchers, and advanced graduate students. Proposals from undergraduates or first-year graduate students require lead authors to be full-time faculty members. We are accepting proposals for panels, workshops, posters, and individual papers in the fields of history, politics, social sciences, culture, economics, education and pedagogy, digital humanities, libraries, literature, film, language, the Baltic diaspora, and the arts.
Proposal abstracts of 250 words or less, with name, email, and institutional affiliation, can be emailed as an attachment to aabs2020[at]wingate.edu.
Proposals due October 15th
