Convention theme: Image of the Self
Following the theme of the 2016 ASEEES-MAG Convention “Image of the Other”, we seek to examine the way states, societies, interest groups and social movements, as well as individuals, represent themselves to themselves and to others through manifold means including language, culture, literature, the politics of history, and politics as such. Images of the self can be found, of course, not only in scholarship but also in popular writing, artistic expression, and in the public sphere.
How have some images given rise to stereotypes and instrumentalized narratives? How have some others constituted resources for tolerance, mutual respect, and cooperation? These issues appear in headlines worldwide, but they seem especially salient in Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
MAG invites proposals directly or indirectly addressing topics related to the “Image of the Self” as they to Eastern Europe and Eurasia. Scholars from all countries worldwide are welcome to apply.
