Statement adopted by AKSE and EAJS on racism in COVID19 Times



The 16th EAJS International Conference

In the face of the ongoing threat of corona to the participation and health of EAJS members/delegates, the EAJS together with the local organizers have decided to hold the conference on the agreed dates (25-28 Aug 2021) as a purely digital event, i.e. as a virtual conference. We are in close contact with the section convenors and will make sure that all accepted presenters are kept informed about the specifics of the changed conference format and the implications for their presentations. In any case, it is planned that all papers and panels that have been accepted will be presented during the four conference days.

There will be a second call for papers and panels in early 2021 - dates can be seen here.

If, in light of this altered format, you wish to withdraw your accepted paper/panel, please inform eajs(at)nomadit.co.uk. If you would like to retract your paper from a pre-organized, accepted panel, please inform both eajs(at)nomadit.co.uk and your panel organizer.

With all good wishes, and please stay healthy
Andrej Bekeš (EAJS President)
