Following the first successful Regional Conference in Uppsala, Sweden, the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) organises its second Regional Conference in cooperation with the Leibniz ScienceCampus “Eastern Europe – Global Area” (EEGA) in September 2020, in Leipzig, Germany. Under the theme “Globalising Eastern Europe – New Perspectives on Transregional Entanglements”, we seek to stimulate and discuss research on these border-crossing encounters in a comparative perspective. Aiming to stimulate a debate about interpretations across historical periods and geographical spaces, the conference brings together perspectives and case studies from a variety of disciplines. In thematic panels, round table discussions and interactive workshops dedicated to knowledge transfer and innovative science communication, about 100 international junior and senior scholars present their research on Eastern Europe, an area spanning from Poland in the West to Russia in the East, to the Balkans and the Caucasus in the South, in its global and transregional entanglements.
On the list of accepted panels you will find: "EU-nization of gender equality policies in Central and Eastern European Research and Higher Education" submitted by the members of the ACT GEinCEE Community of Practice (https://geincee.act-on-gender.eu/).
