Dear friends of the Association of Central Eurasian Students at Indiana University (ACES),
It is with great pleasure that we wish to invite panel and paper proposals to the 22nd Annual ACES Conference to be held on March 7th, 2015 at Indiana University in Bloomington.
We are additionally pleased to announce Dr. Edward Schatz, chair of Political Science at the University of Toronto, as our keynote speaker for this year. A scholar of identity politics in post-Soviet Central Asia, Dr. Schatz’s unique, interdisciplinary methodologies continue to inspire many both within and outside of Central Eurasian studies.
Graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars are cordially invited to submit abstracts of papers addressing all topics pertaining to Central Eurasian Studies by November 7th, 2014. For the purposes of this conference, Central Eurasian Studies refers to the study of the historical and contemporary Afghan, Balto-Finnic, Hungarian, Iranian, Mongolic, Tibetan, Tungusic, and Turkic peoples, languages, cultures, and states. Submission of pre-organized panels is strongly encouraged. Individual papers are also welcome and will be assigned by the Conference Committee to a suitable panel. All proposals will be subject to a double-blind review process. A few of our past panel themes include:
• Societies and Cultures of Xinjiang
• Energy and Environmental Policy in Inner Asia
• Romanticism in Hungarian Literature, Culture, and the Arts
• Discourses in Afghan Society
• Comparative and International Relations
• Aspects of Imperial and Soviet Rule in Central Asia
• Geography in Mongolian Historiography
Proposals with abstracts should be submitted via this link: http://www.iub.edu/~aces/2015form.php. Please remember that the submission of a proposal represents a commitment on your behalf to participate in the conference.
