50th Annual ASEEES Convention
ICSID team members took part in the 50th Annual Convention of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies. The Convention was held in Boston on December 6-9, 2018.
Established in 1948, the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) - a nonprofit, non-political, scholarly society - is the leading international organization dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about Central Asia, the Caucasus, Russia, and Eastern Europe in regional and global contexts. ASEEES supports teaching, research, and publication relating to the study of the region and has cultivated the field’s intellectual landscape for seventy years through its chief publication, Slavic Review, its book prizes, and its organizational newsletter.
One of the core activities of the Association is the annual convention. Held in the fall, the convention takes place each year in a different city in North America. This international forum has more than 2,600 attendees every year and makes possible a broad exchange of information and ideas, stimulating further work and sustaining the intellectual vitality of the field.
This year, the theme of the ASEEES meeting was designated as "Performance" and included a number of diverse topics: formation, consolidation and transformation of the identity of the individual, society and nation; gender and sexuality; diversity, justice and inclusiveness; political effectiveness, etc.
