Call For Papers

Call for Papers: The 3rd Annual Kurultai on the Endangered Cultural Heritage, 19-22 November 2020, Constanta, Romania - AKECH 2020
This year the Annual Kurultai of the Endangered Cultural Heritage – AKECH 2020, is keeping up with the frontline of COVID-19.
The conference includes plenary sessions, workshops, round-table discussions, and other events. Much of the program will be self-generated by the seminar organizers and paper submitters, faculty and/or graduate students who will propose seminars and papers via our web pages.
Anticus Multicultural Association in conjunction with its partners.
Dates of the Conference
The conference will take place between November 19th and November 22nd, 2020.
Constanta, Romania. As we deal with COVID-19, you should be prepared to follow alternative conferencing solutions. We are committed to assessing the situation and not canceling this conference.
This year, we are calling for papers that examine any aspect of „Things that Repeat: Traditions under Quarantine.” Our conference will focus on the disruptions and critical risks confronting indigenous cultures and languages, and their significance for sustainable development, reconciliation, good governance, and peace-building.
The Kurultai is organized in the spirit of communion, as this is an imperative time for international scholars, independent researchers, artists, and activists to fear the potential disappearance of our individual cultures, languages, traditions, and memories and to engage in shared dialogues towards generating world-changing impact and a better future. We believe we can better understand the different habits of mind when we immerse ourselves into different perspectives and unique approaches. We imagine a rich future rooted in a better understanding of our intricate history and in a multitudinous cultural present.
At AKECH 2020, we agree that many problems affecting cultural heritage require insights and problem-solving skills from many disciplines, perspectives, and practices. We realize that no overall theme can really accommodate the great variety of interests around the issues relating to endangered cultural heritage.
Therefore, we invite contributions that address current cultural heritage issues from a great variety of disciplines in the arts, humanities, and sciences. We encourage adherents of literature, language, anthropology, psychology, history, biology, human geography, film studies, art, computer science, political science, physics, and all other areas of study, to feel welcome in attending this conference and even in submitting a seminar proposal or a paper.
While the plenary sessions will be held in English, panels can be held either in English, Romanian, or Tatar (or its related Central Asian languages).
We welcome proposals for (1) entire panels, (2) individual papers, and (3) poster presentations.
1. Organized panels
The Program Committee approves pre-arranged and open panels. Most papers are grouped into twelve-person panels that meet two hours per day for three days of the lecture to foster extended discussion. Some eight-person (or smaller) seminars meet just the first two days of the conference. Depending on space availability, we may also consider accepting a limited number of one-day seminars, especially if they are innovative either in presentation format or in terms of theme. The only restriction is that no panel may have more than 50% of graduate students, and none may have more than two participants from the same institution.
Please submit your abstract of no more than 500 words on our webpage at:

or send it by e-mail to Deadline: 31 March 2020
2. Individual papers
Papers will be allocated 15-20 minutes plus 5-10 minutes for questions. You can propose your paper to the panel which is the best fit for it or to an open panel.
Please submit your abstract of no more than 300 words on our webpage at:

or send it by e-mail to Deadline: 31 May 2020.

3. Poster presentations

The conference provides facilities for poster presentations. Posters will be displayed during the works. Depending on the number of submissions accepted, a few poster-presentation sessions are planned as “guided tours.” Posters must present research projects and results and they should meet academic standards in both content and form. The presentation of the poster should not exceed 10 minutes.
Please submit your abstract of no more than 300 words on our webpage at:

or send it by e-mail to Deadline: 31 May 2020

All those invited to present will be informed by 15 June 2020.
