The Association for the Study of Eastern Christian History and Culture, Inc. (ASEC) announces its seventh biennial conference to be held at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, March 10-11, 2017 (with a pre-conference reception on March 9). The theme is “Eastern Christianity, Reformations, and Revolutions,” in honor of the five-hundredth anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and the one-hundredth anniversary of the Russian Revolution, and is conceptualized to embrace any discipline, topic, period or region related to Eastern Christian groups.
The theme’s intent is broadly conceived to address the impact of either the Reformation or the Russian Revolution on any form of Eastern Christianity, including their extended repercussions and legacy to the present day and globally, as well as the impact of other reform movements and revolutions. Papers are also welcome that do not explicitly address these topics. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to participate.
Panel proposals of three participants and chair/discussant are preferred, but individual papers are also encouraged. Send paper and panel proposals with abstracts of 100-200 words for each paper, and a brief one-page curriculum vitae for each participant to Eugene Clay (Eugene.Clay@asu.edu). Proposals must be received by December 15, 2016.
Limited funding is available to provide graduate students with assistance for travel expenses.
