Understanding the Countryside:
Rural Europe in a Post-Global World

The Institute of European Studies and the Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies at UC Berkeley invite proposals for a one-day graduate conference that aims to bring together students working on European rural issues at the local, regional, national, and continental level. 

The conference will be multidisciplinary in nature and it is open to students in the humanities, social sciences, law, public policy, and creative disciplines, working on the topic from different perspectives and with varied chronological approaches.

The ultimate goal of the conference is to provide graduate students working on topics with a European rural component a platform to interact with each other and also with professors from different departments across campus. As a graduate conference, students are expected to present a synopsis of their research, which can be a work in progress. 

Submissions are due on July 15, 2019 and they should include the following:

  • Title of paper and abstract (no more than 300 words)
  • CV (no more than 4 pages)

Submissions should be sent to Alberto Sanchez Sanchez ( Please direct all inquiries about the conference or the call for papers to him as well.

There is no registration fee to participate in the conference. Contingent to funding availability, selected student presenters traveling from outside the Bay Area will receive a limited stipend for travel and lodging expenses.
