The Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies (CRCEES) will be holding the second of its annual Research Days at the University of Nottingham on 17-18 June 2008.

The plan remains to have a combination of research panels, plenary sessions and informal workshops to explore the five research themes within CRCEES, which are:

•    Aspects of identity and culture and their social, political and economic implications;
•    Economic and social transformation;
•    Political transformation and international relations;
•    Literary, cinematic and cultural developments in the area;
•    The politics of language.

Within these broad schemes, there is much scope for more tightly focused sub-themes, focusing on particular areas of expertise and interest. The purpose of the Research Forum is to celebrate the variety of work being undertaken within the CRCEES network.

The Research Forum will be organised by the CRCEES Research Committee, which is calling for proposals for individual papers or panels, plenary sessions, and workshops. It is particularly keen to involve contributions from post-graduate students; these may either take the form of papers integrated within panels or discreet post-graduate events. Proposals from those outside the CRCEES network will be considered, and included where they strengthen the programme.

The members of the Research Committee are happy to give advice, and all proposals (250 words) should be with its chair, Geoff Swain (, by the deadline of 29 February 2008.
