SOYUZ: The Research Network for Postsocialist Cultural Studies Interest Group is calling for panel submissions for the 2019 CASCA/AAA Annual Meeting, to be held on Nov. 20-24 in Vancouver, BC.
The Soyuz Research Network connects cultural studies scholars and ethnographers researching postsocialism, understood as a theoretically generative problem space describing social life in regions of the world including East-Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union, Asia, Africa, Latin American, and the Caribbean. Our goal is to foster collegial conversations about postsocialisms among generations of researchers in anthropology and cultural studies broadly conceived, with a special eye to building connections across traditional area studies boundaries.
Each year, SOYUZ sponsors one outstanding panel that takes as its focus (post)socialist lifeworlds. If you are considering organizing a panel that speaks to topics pertaining to socialism and postsocialism, and are interested in SOYUZ sponsorship, please contact: Emily Channell-Justice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
