Important Notice to All Presenters in the 2014
Yale Conference on Baltic and Scandinavian Studies
This conference is a joint effort of Yale University, the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies (AABS), and the Society for the Advancement of Scandinavian Study (SASS). This conference differs significantly from the first AABS-SASS joint conference in Seattle in 2010. That conference developed as two parallel conferences, with very little crossover either intellectually or socially. The 2014 Yale conference is intentionally trans-regional; we aim to stimulate greater discussion and exchange between two organizations and two broader regions that have a great deal in common.
The Yale conference thus features many integrated panels with papers drawing on the experience of the peoples of Scandinavia, Finland, and the southern Baltic littoral. We hope this will stimulate productive intellectual exchanges and wider professional contacts across the two scholarly associations and among scholars both of the Baltic and Scandinavia. The Yale conference also includes panels on single national/regional issues.
Presentation length: Please be aware that each presentation must be between 15 and 20 minutes in length. Please plan for this limit to allow your co-presenters equal time. A/V equipment for PowerPoint is available in all rooms, but participants should bring their own laptops.
Thank you, and best wishes from the organizers,
