Call For Papers

The conference series is an opportunity for early-career researchers and
academics from a range of disciplines to meet and share their experiences. This
one-day conference is aimed at discussing the methodologies and methods
utilized in their research, the challenges they face and alternative perspectives in
studying Regional studies. The goal is to provide an occasion for researchers to
present their methodological approaches, reflect on their research and gain
feedback from their peers interested in the same field of study. This conference
also aims to encourage and consider alternative tools and sources, covering a
variation of methodologies, whilst debating and discussing research in Regional
Studies. We welcome submissions from all studying Eastern Europe, Central Asia &
Caucasus and The Middle East, using interdisciplinary approaches and a
variety of research methods.

The conference will focus on:

Methodological choices: Why have you chosen this methodological approach in
particular? How would you justify your chosen methodology? How do
methodological choices influence the formulation of the research question and
