Transnational Currents in Modern Estonian History
Call for Papers

The 14th Conference on Modern Estonian History

June 10–11, 2015, Tallinn, Rüütli 6, Institute of History of Tallinn

This conference calls to explore the benefits and challenges of transnational
history for the study of modern Estonian history. In recent years
“transnational” approaches to national histories have become more and more
commonplace in history writing across the globe, with scholars seeking to move
beyond national and local frameworks when investigating the past. Yet such
transnational approaches so far remain rare in historical scholarship concerning
Estonia in the 19th and 20th centuries. However, broader contexts associated
with transnational (transcultural, translocal) history can open up new questions
on many themes of importance to Estonia’s past and present.

Therefore we encourage PhD-students and experienced colleagues alike to shed new
light on Estonia’s past in 19th and 20th centuries, to explore flows and ties
across Estonia’s borders, be it goods, people or ideas, and trace networks and
links with Europe and the world. Papers are welcome on a wide range of topics
and need not be limited to the following: political organizations, movements and
ideologies; trade, finance and corporations; migrations, labor, women’s and
minorities’ rights; cultural flows in the broadest sense.

The official languages of the Conference by tradition will be Estonian and

Participants will have 30 minutes at their disposal (20 minutes for delivering
the paper and 10 for discussion).

Proposals for papers and a short abstract should be forwarded to: Maie
Pihlamägi, Institute of History of Tallinn University, Rüütli 6, 10130
Tallinn, Estonia, e-mail: maie.pihlamagi at tlu.ee by March 1, 2015.

We look forward to your reply and hope that you can join us at the 14th
Conference on Modern Estonian History.
