Call for Papers open for Baltic Connections 2021!

The Baltic Connections 2021 will take place at the University of Helsinki, Finland, from April 20 to 21. As with the earlier conferences in Helsinki and Jyväskylä, we aim to bring together scholars working on comparative, economic, social, global, and other types of history and related social sciences to address various “East-West” historical processes and events as well as comparative and transnational analysis, including at the Baltic region, Europe, and the world.

The second Riitta Hjerppe Lecture in Social Science History will be given by Joel Mokyr (Northwestern). Further solid keynotes will be delivered by Jenny Andersson (CNRS, Uppsala University), and Arja Turunen (University of Jyväskylä).

The deadline for proposals is February 15, 2021. In addition to individual papers, proposals for three to four paper panels are appreciated. The conferees will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis and on March 15 at the latest. Proposals can be submitted to balticsocsciencehist@gmail.com. All the papers accepted for the canceled 2020 conference are automatically accepted for the 2021 conference.

Due to the Coronavirus Disease situation, the Baltic Connections 2021 will be a hybrid conference, making it possible and safe to participate from everywhere around the world while concurrently allowing live participation for locals and those able to travel from safer regions.
