Call for panels and papers for the 8th East Asian Conference on

Conflict and Harmony in Eurasia in the 21 Century:

Dynamics and Aesthetics


June 3-4, 2017Conference Theme:

The Korean Association of Slavic and East European Studies (KASEUS) will host the

8th East Asian Conference on Slavic and Eurasian Studies, with the support of

CAREECAS (China) and JCREES (Japan) at Chung-Ang University in Seoul on June 3-

4, 2017.

Since the collapse of USSR in 1991, there has emerged a dynamic fluctuation of conflict

and cooperation in the transitional process of the post-socialist states of Eurasia. On the

one hand, active economic cooperation among Eurasian countries and their neighboring

countries led to the establishment of the EAEU (Eurasian Economic Union). On the other

hand,there still exist many kinds of territorial disputes and civil wars in the Eurasian

countries and clashes of social and cultural values.

This phenomenon is not unique to Eurasia. Various conflicts remain around us. Sociopolitical conflicts in the process of democratization and civil wars result in increasing

numbers of migrants and refugees, posing challenges for democratic values, and

strengthening the political influenceof right-wing political parties.

This global proliferation of conflicts raises concerns about the return of geo-political

conflict and the Cold War. However, conflicts can provide a society with dynamics that

are necessary for the development of a society through a process of proper management,

although failure to manage conflicts can cause a serious crisis. For this reason,

understanding the conflicts in the post-socialist period can serve as a foundation for

understanding the prosperous future of Eurasia, including Northeast Asia.

The year of 2017 is the centennial anniversary of the Russian Revolution. The Russian

Revolution provides the opportunity to consider conflicts encompassing freedom, equality,

and peace. The Russian Revolution triggered phenomenal changes from manyperspectives of international affairs, a nation’s politics, individual’s private life and so
