15th EASA Biennial Conference

Staying, Moving, Settling is the theme of the 15th EASA biennial conference which will be hosted by Stockholm University, in the picturesque Swedish capital situated between the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren. Join us for four days of panels, labs, plenary discussions and more from August 14 to 17, 2018.

The call for labs, call for films and call for papers are now open. See their deadlines and links below. See also the call for papers for the Early Career Scholars forum (plenary C): Im/mobility, uncertainty and hope: critical reflections on academic precarity.

The conference could only accept 160 of the 300 panel proposals received. We apologise to the convenors of the many good proposals we were unable to include in the programme, but hope you may still find place for your own work within the panels accepted.

To plan your stay in Stockholm, have a look at the accommodation page and the map of venues and accommodation locations. Please also read about the conference registration procedure and the likely registration fees here.
