The Telciu Summer Conferences are in their 7th edition this year of being
organised in a village in Romania aiming at destabilising the status quo of
academia occupying mainly urban spaces. Following the general scope of
re-examining the role of the periphery from the point of view of the
periphery, while bringing together an array of established and young
international scholars, we invite you to submit your papers to our
conference, this year on the topic of Imperialism, Nationalism and
Capitalist Crises: The Great War and Its Legacies
<https://telciusummerconferences.wordpress.com/2018/03/18/imperialism-nation

. As a conference hoping to change what and where academia is, there is no
fee for the conference while the organizers will cover meals for the
speakers as well as free accommodation for maximum 6 speakers, based on need
and by request. Independent researchers or junior researchers will be given
priority with accommodation.

What kind of imperialism died in 1918 and what took its place? According to
conventional wisdom, the end of the Habsburgs, the official demise of the
Ottoman Empire and the replacement of the Tsarist Empire with the USSR
marked the end of imperial power relations in Europe. European and American
imperialism are viewed as having survived for a few more decades only in
Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Instead of Russia and Austro-Hungarian
imperialism rose an Eastern Europe of nations judged by the historical canon
as too politically immature to handle the ethnic mosaics resulted from
defunct empires and too weak to stand up to German and Soviet militarism.

Those who uphold this historical canon obscure more than they reveal.
Economic contradictions powered by new sovereignty, mechanisms of
neo-imperial economic domination, traumatic population movements in the wake
of the Treaty of Versailles, as well as new forms of economic and political
violence fueled by anticommunist rhetoric are all left unaddressed in this
perspective. Most importantly, this established narrative does not engage in
a comparative analysis of the post-imperial situation in East-Central Europe
with the post-World War II decolonization experience in Asia, Latin America
and the Middle East.Postcolonial studies, intended as a critique of this
historical canon, have themselves for a long time focused on Western
European imperialisms and their afterlives and have neglected both the study
of non-European empires and the spaces between various European and
non-European empires.

The conference aims to fill in these gaps and reexamine the basis on which
comparative research on imperialism and the legacies of the Great War rest.
It calls for complementary comparative work and invites papers that deal
with various parts of Eastern Europe as spaces of inter-imperiality (Laura
Doyle) where imperial powers overlapped. How do economic, political and
social structures become legible in relation to multiple, conflicting
empires generating different and competing imperialisms? How did the
imperial difference (Madina Tlostanova) between traditional empires shape
national, religious, and ethnic self-understandings and the resulting
conflicts? How did multi- and inter-imperial relations impact the
integration of these spaces into the capitalist world-economy?

To apply for the conference, please submit a title and an abstract of your
paper (max 300 words) in English to [log in to unmask]
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>  until 1st of June 2018. Romanian
scholars are requested to send the abstract also in Romanian. The organizers
will cover meals for the speakers as well as free accommodation for maximum
6 speakers, based on need and by request. Independent researchers or junior
researchers will be given priority with accommodation.

There are no fees for the conference participants.
