Dear friends and colleagues,

Due to renegotiations with CEEOL the last three issues (2, 3 and 4 for 2015) of our journal are temporarily unavailable online.

Thanks for your patience!


Our journal will dedicate its issue 1/2016 to the cultures of protest in the Balkans and Eastern Europe. Articles are solicited focusing primarily on Bulgarian and Balkan protests in the 1990s (e.g. those against Videnov’s government in 1997) and in the past couple of years (e.g. #DANSwithme, Gezi park, the Greek protests), aiming at ‘thick descriptions’ (Geertz) and making sense of them from an ethnological and social-anthropological perspective. Authors can concentrate on individual case studies (even of flash mobs) or comparative studies within or outside the region (Ukraine, the Arab spring, global movements). The focus of attention is expected to be on ‘cultures’ (i.e. traditions and the use of traditional elements in the protests, practices, networks, dynamics, interactions, tensions, forms of participation - esp. of youth, media coverage, virtual dissent), rather than on ideologies and causes. This is why research is welcome on any protests: ecological, concerning heritage and urban environments, social and economic inequalities, corruption, the ‘system’ as a whole, including globalisation, GMO, etc.

Please send your proposals no later than 1 September 2015, and your full texts no later than 30 November 2015 to both mila.maeva@iefem.bas.bg and koleva@phls.uni-sofia.bg
