Platform Ukraine, a multidisciplinary attempt to analyse the Ukraine crisis of 2014 and the post-Soviet space more broadly, welcomes proposals for its 2015 conference. The project aims to provide a unified resource and network of academics studying the area. The conference will also mark the one-year anniversary of the project, which has been running since May 2014. More information on the project can be found at http://platformukraine.com.
We invite multidisciplinary proposals that attempt to use novel research methods in order to improve and advance cooperation between various disciplines. We are particularly interested in contributions that expand on the themes developed during Platform Ukraine’s workshop series (see website for a list), but will also welcome panels that propose to explore new themes from a multidisciplinary perspective. We invite any researchers with novel or particularly relevant methodological approaches to apply and to present. Platform Ukraine has featured an ongoing blog about its work, as well as numerous collaborations. The outcomes of this conference will be published in a special issue of a journal (details to be confirmed). It is hoped that the event will help frame the Ukrainian crisis in a larger context, both spatially and temporally, and to build a multidisciplinary academic resource on the topic.
The deadline for proposals is 5pm GMT on February 15th 2015. For full submission guidelines and links visit http://www.ceelbas.ac.uk/ceelbas-news/news/platform-ukraine
Limited travel funding is available for the conference. Accommodation arrangements may be possible through partner organisations. Please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you and receiving your proposal.
