Conférence en ligne organisée à l’occasion du 58e International Congress on Medieval Studies, du 11 au 13 mai 2023.
Date limite d’envoi des propositions: 15 septembre 2022.
Medievalism has been a common, and hardly innocent practice, in both Russian and Ukrainian political discourse ever since the dissolution of the USSR in the 1990s. Both Russia and Ukraine have laid claims to the prominent historical figures of the Kievan/Kyivan Rus’, and the recent military conflict has led to renewed interest in the history of medieval Rus’. Our aim is to establish fruitful and respectful critical dialogue of this sensitive issue among scholars coming from various cultural backgrounds with an interest in Slavic studies, medievalism and the use of medieval history in public discourse, working in all relevant disciplines.
All proposals should be submitted via Confex proposal portal (icms.confex.com/icms/2023/cfp.cgi).
The deadline for submission is Thursday, Sept. 15, 2022.
In the meantime, please feel free to get in touch with the session organizer Dr Anastasija Ropa (Anastasija.ropa [at] lspa.lv) if you would like to propose a paper or moderate the round table.
