2022-23 Conference


Call for Proposals

The European Studies Council (ESC) of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University invites proposals of panels and roundtables for the European Studies Graduate Fellows’ 4th annual international interdisciplinary conference.

On May 9th, in celebration of Europe Day, a hybrid-format conference is scheduled to take place at Yale University, a prominent international center for the study of Europe and Eurasia and home to the MA program in European and Russian Studies. The conference will accept remote participation, as well.

The deadline for proposals of panels and roundtables is December 23, 2022. To propose a panel or roundtable, please submit the online proposal form on this page.

Political Science, History, Sociology,  Security, Film and Media Studies,  Economics, Linguistics, Literatures, Cultural Studies, and Law are all acceptable fields of study for panel or roundtable topics. Graduate, postgraduate research students and early-career scholars are strongly encouraged to apply.

In the backdrop of Russia’s war against Ukraine, we are especially receptive to initiatives that further the decentralization and decolonization of the study of the former “communist bloc” of the Soviet Union, Central and Eastern Europe, and Eurasia at large. 

The results of the selection will be communicated by January 3, 2023.
