Southeast European Studies Student Symposium


What is the SEES Student Symposium about?

The Southeast European Studies (SEES) Student Symposium aims at creating an opportunity for networking among SEES students and students who have a subject-related connection to Southeast Europe. It will provide a platform for exchange and feedback on current research papers (seminar papers, bachelor’s and master’s theses, etc.) and projects. There are no limits to the choice of topics: We are curious to know what is interesting to you and where you see areas for further exchange in relation to Southeast Europe. Therefore, we call for presentations on papers or work-in-progress (WIP) reports and explicitly encourage you to come with open questions when presenting your own research. This can then be discussed with the audience. 

As a meeting place, the symposium provides space for academic and personal exchange about Southeast Europe. We strive for respectful debates at eye level and tolerance for mistakes. In addition to the WIP reports, there will be keynotes and workshops, cultural and creative activities. Main working languages of the Symposium are English and German. If you want to participate in another language, you may indicate that in your application. However, please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee a discussion and moderation in all languages.

Who do we address?

We invite bachelor’s and master’s students as well as master’s graduates who are currently in the application process for predoc and doc scholarships to discuss their current work and projects. We welcome contributions from all disciplines such as cultural studies, literary studies, linguistics, history, political science, religious studies, social sciences, and all others as long as the topic is related to Southeast Europe. By Southeast Europe, we understand: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Moldova, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Turkey

The SEES Student Symposium will be held online from 31 March to 1 April 2023. Students who are interested in contributing may send their abstract with a short CV by 5 February 2023.
