POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, the Institute of History, and the Institute of Sociology at the University of Warsaw are organizing an international academic conference. During the conference, we wish to discuss the causes, course and aftermath of the events, possibly in comparison to the policies of other countries within the Communist Bloc. We are also interested in the context and parallels pertaining to the global extent of the events that took place in the year 1968.
We invite historians, political scientists, sociologists, anthropologists, cultural studies and literature scholars and other fields within the arts and humanities, and social sciences.
We kindly ask you to submit 200-300 word abstracts in ENGLISH (indicating the choice of language of presentation: English or Polish), as well as a short biographical note via electronic application form available at the Internet address: www.polin.pl/en/conf68 no later than 30 June 2017.
We are particularly looking for papers presenting new, original research and reflection.
The organizers cover the costs of accommodation in Warsaw during the conference. The organizers reserve the right to publish the conference materials.
