Call for Proposal:
Platform Ukraine, a multidisciplinary attempt to analyse the Ukraine crisis of 2014 and the post-Soviet space more broadly, welcomes proposals for its 2015 conference. The project aims to provide a unified resource and network of academics studying the area.
The conference will also mark the one-year anniversary of the project, which has been running since May 2014. The panels will be the culmination of a year of workshops and other events that have attempted to push the boundaries of interdisciplinarity.
