 2018 Annual Convention
Lviv, Ukraine
June 27-29, 2018
(In Partnership with Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv)

 Convention theme: Image of the Self

This theme follows the previous convention’s “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.”

Call for Applications

Proposals for complete and well-balanced panel sessions and roundtables will be given priority; individuals may also apply.  A panel consists of an organizer, a moderator, three paper presenters, and a commentator.  Roundtables must have a chair; and 3 to 5 roundtable speakers.

Applicants from Eurasia and Eastern Europe (non-European Union) are eligible for travel grants.

Deadline for all applications:  January 30, 2018.
