Memory and Momentum: Culture and Change in Central and Eastern Europe

Graduate Conference March 4, 2017

Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies

University of Victoria

Changing borders, immigration, political change and unrest, war, death, birth and rebirth have changed the composition of Central and Eastern Europe, causing massive, fundamental cultural shifts which have continually drawn global attention. How are the histories and stories of these multifarious transformations told and retold, and what do these differing interpretations mean for the region as a whole? The University of Victoria’s Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies invites presenters to explore the various ways that experience and memory of modern Central and Eastern European life are transmitted and transformed. This graduate conference will engender an interdisciplinary, intersectional discussion on contemporary and historical culture in Central and Eastern Europe.

Though not limited to the following fields, we welcome submissions relating to:

  • Literature
  • Linguistics
  • Pedagogy
  • Culture
  • History
  • Art and Music
  • Film
  • Politics
  • Memory Studies

Presentations will be 20 minutes in length, followed by a panel Q&A period. Presenters will have the opportunity to submit their paper to the Department of Germanic and Slavic Studies’ graduate journal, 

Verges, for publication in May 2017.

Please submit an abstract of 300 words to by January 6, 2017.
