BASEES 2022 is being planned to be held in-person from the 8th to the 10th of April and will be hosted at Robinson College, University of Cambridge, United Kingdom.

The deadline for paper and panel/roundtable proposals is 30 September 2021. To propose a panel or a paper you will need to fill in the electronic proposal form on this website. The proposal system will go live on Tuesday 6th July 2021.
BASEES welcomes paper, panel and roundtable proposals in the following areas: Politics; History; Sociology and Geography; Film and Media, Languages and Linguistics; Literatures and Cultures; and Economics. The conference especially welcomes participation by postgraduate research students and early career scholars.
BASEES will allow a limited number of remote paper presentations. If you wish to attend remotely, please indicate so when submitting your proposal. We cannot accept fully remote panels. Remote presentations as part of full panel proposals are limited to one remote presentation in panels with three speakers (excluding the chair) and two remote presentations in panels/roundtables with four to five speakers (excluding chair).
