A Workshop for new Doctoral Research on the History of Southeast Europe
On 26-28 June
Hosted by the Centre for Advanced Study
In Sofia, Bulgaria

The Center for Democracy and Reconciliation in Southeastern Europe (CDRSEE)
is convening a workshop to present, compare and discuss new doctoral
research relevant to the history of Southeastern Europe. The workshop will
be hosted in Sofia by the Centre for Advanced Studies (CAS). The CDRSEE
and the CAS are seeking to bring together younger scholars who have
undertaken the primary research for their doctoral dissertations or who
have completed their dissertations within the recent past (typically 3-4
years). In addition to dissertations from History Departments, those that
deal primarily with the history of any part of the region but are being
done or completed in departments other than History are also welcome.

Scholars from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, FY
Republic of Macedonia, Romania, and Yugoslavia are invited to apply. A
limited number of spaces are also available for students who originate from
other countries but who are working on Balkan issues. The 15 selected will
be notified by March 17 and asked to submit a 5-page summary of their
dissertations' findings, methods and sources to the Center by April 15. At
the workshop, selectees will be asked to make a 15-20 minute oral
presentation on their work, as well as a 10-minute discussion on somebody
else's pre-circulated presentation to others selected, and to 6 senior
historians drawn from the Center's international Board of Eminent Scholars.
The majority of the workshop's time will however be devoted to a joint
discussion of papers and presentations.

Applications should reach the CDRSEE by the deadline of March 6, 2003. All
applications, papers, presentations and discussions will be in English.

Applications should consist of the following:
§ A short CV of three pages maximum
§ A one or two page description of your dissertation and its main theses.
§ An e-mail or other address for March 17 notification

Applications should be submitted by e-mail to

The travel and accommodation, together with a small honorarium, will be
covered by the organisers. The list of senior scholars attending will be
available to selectees after April 1.

This project is supported by generousfunding from USAID.

The Centre for Advanced Study in Sofia (CAS) is an independent non-profit
institution set up for the promotion of advanced scholarship and academic
cooperation in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The idea of creating a
small "centre of academic excellence" in Sofia draws upon the traditions
and the practices of the Institutes for Advanced Study in the US and
Europe. The CAS vision is rooted in the belief that an intellectual
community is a natural breeding-ground for critical thought and in the
recent conviction that scholarship in the contemporary world is
increasingly becoming an interdisciplinary, collective and global
endeavour. For more information, see
