[ Call for Papers ]

The Russian Institute for Cultural Research (Moscow) seeks articles for a collected volume on Russian Utopianism in the International Context to be published by the publishing house 'Progress-Traditsiia' in 2011.

We hereby invite papers on any aspect of Russian utopianism, but pieces with a focus on the interrelationship of Russian and Western utopias are especially welcome.

In particular, this volume will be organized around themes of the mutual influence of Russian and Western utopian traditions, representations of the Self and the Other in utopias, and the intercultural context in which utopian ideas evolved.

Depending on financing, there might be a possibility to organize a workshop prior to the publication.

Articles may be either in Russian or in English (other European languages might also be considered) and must be accompanied by abstracts in both languages. Papers should be between 8,000 and 10,000 words. For the inclusion of illustrations written permission must be obtained from the relevant institutions.

Potential contributors are encouraged to send brief CVs with a description of their specific area of specialization. The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2010.

Queries regarding submissions should be addressed to the volume editor Viacheslav P. Shestakov:
