New Call for Applications

SEESA Website






To support undergraduate and graduate student scholarship and international participation in the field of Southeast European Studies, the Southeast European Studies Association (SEESA) has established the SEESA Travel Grants to subsidize travel costs for presentation of papers at international, national, regional, or state conferences. In 2019 the grants will be awarded to undergraduate and graduate students for presentation of their work on topics related to Southeastern European Studies at conferences in any field − including but not limited to history, linguistics, literature, anthropology, the arts, social and political science, and folklore.

SEESA plans to fund, on a competitive basis, at least 2 awards of $500 each.

Applicants must be students. They may be studying at the undergraduate, master's or doctoral level and in any field of Southeast European Studies. Students may receive only one SEESA Graduate Student Travel Grant over the course of their undergraduate and graduate studies.

Applicants should submit an abstract of their paper of no fewer than 500 words, proof that their paper has been accepted for presentation, a C.V., a short bibliography of their paper and proof of student status as an email attachment to Bavjola Shatro []. Author’s name, affiliation, and contact information should be written below the title of the paper.

Applicants who cannot submit proof of acceptance of their papers by October 1st because the conference at which they plan to present has a later deadline for sending acceptance notifications, should contact SEESA’s Committee for Travel Grants at the email address mentioned above before submitting their application in order to receive additional instructions for completing and submitting their application.

Applications will be evaluated by SEESA’S Committee for Travel Grants. The written quality of an abstract will be a factor in its consideration.

Questions about the grants may be directed to Bavjola Shatro at the email address given above.
Application Submission Deadline: October 1st, 2019

Important Dates:
Publication date: Late December, 2019
Last date for submission: August 1, 2019
Hiperboreea is an online academic journal published biannually by the Balkan History Association. The journal publishes articles in the field of History, written in English and occasionally French, and book reviews, or evaluations of scholarly conferences. Our focus is the study of Southeastern Europe, broadly defined as the states situated in the Balkan region.
Without limiting its scope a specific historical period or approach, the journal covers a wide range of topics, such as Cultural History, Political History, Military History, Social History, Economic History and Archaeology, and encourages work on any historical period and pluri-disciplinary background.
The following types of manuscripts are considered for publication:
– original articles in basic and applied research;
– critical reviews, surveys, opinions, commentaries and essays.
Starting from 2020, Hiperboreea will be published by the Pennsylvania State University Press (PSU Press). All manuscripts should be prepared according to PSU Press editorial policy (Author Guidelines).
Hiperboreea is one of the few Romanian journals that has built a solid presence in the online environment, being indexed in the following international databases and libraries:
The editors will inform authors of the decision on their manuscripts within 1-2 weeks from submission. Starting with 2018, some changes in the editorial policy of Hiperboreea are implemented. Authors will be charged with a symbolic fee, for each article published, regular or special issues. Thus, charges will be applied to authors for the processing (not editing) and publication of manuscripts submitted to Hiperboreea and online hosting and archiving. The publication fee will be of 11 Euro (50 RON for Romania) per each article. Members of the Balkan History Association will be able to publish for free. All costs will be charged only upon the acceptance of their manuscripts for publication. After publication, each author will receive his article through e-mail as an electronic copy (pdf). All articles can be distributed by the authors for non-commercial purposes, only with the written permission of the Editorial Board. See more details in the section called ‘Submission’.
All articles submitted to our journal are reviewed following a double blind peer-review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Our standards impose the existence of at least two reviewers per issue, although it is customary that many more peer-reviewers cooperate for individual issues.
To submit your papers, please mail them to:
Sharing this call for papers would be welcomed and highly appreciated.
Looking forward to receiving your submission!

President of the Balkan History Association (BHA)
