The conference will bring together younger researchers from countries south of the Baltic rim (Germany, Poland, Kaliningrad Oblast, the Baltic states) and aims at discussing different aspects of a visual history of the Baltic Sea region. Possible papers are on

– Images of the Baltic Sea region in paintings
– Images of the Baltic Sea regions in photography and films (incl. Web representation)
– The history of the Baltic Sea region in pictures

– Images of people, images of nations
– Pictures of landscapes and environment
Presentations dealing with cultural constructions of physical and mental spaces are welcome as well.
Conference languages are German and English.
Young researchers (M.A. and PhD candidates, postdocs) dealing with the topics outlined and coming from countries south to the Baltic Sea rim are encouraged to submit their proposals. The conference is an interdisciplinary forum open not only for historians, but also for political scientists, sociologists, literary and language scholars, ethnologists, geographers, and other scholars in humanities thematically related.
