The 2018 Annual Soyuz Symposium

Stages? Postsocialisms, Postliberalisms, and Performances


March 2–3, 2018

Soyuz, the Research Network for Postsocialist Cultural Studies, invites proposals for its 2018 symposium, to be held at Yale in Haven, Connecticut on March 2–3, 2018. We are seeking research papers and multimedia presentations (including documentary/ethnographic/artistic films and performances) on the broad topic of performance and postsocialism, and we encourage submissions that apply this framework to the political imaginaries of the contemporary moment.

The Soyuz Research Network connects cultural studies scholars and ethnographers researching postsocialism, understood as a theoretically generative problem space describing social life in regions of the world including East-Central Europe and the Former Soviet Union, Asia, Africa, Latin American, and the Caribbean. Our goal is to foster collegial conversations about postsocialisms among generations of researchers in anthropology and cultural studies broadly conceived, with a special eye to building connections across traditional area studies boundaries. We welcome submissions from scholars of all career stages, including graduate students and colleagues in professions outside the academy.

We are delighted to announce that Alaina Lemon, of Anthropology at the of Michigan and of the forthcoming book Technologies for Intuition: Cold War Circles and Telepathic Rays, will give the keynote address.
