The Section for Baltic Languages at Stockholm University and University of Tartu are organizing the Fifth Baltic Student Conference "Bridges in the Baltics", to take place in Stockholm (Sweden) on October 6th – 7th, 2017.

The aim of the conference is to bring together students from different countries who are engaged in the Baltic studies, to give them the possibility to meet, present their academic work, learn from each other and make new contacts. The conference welcomes everyone who is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s, Master’s or PhD degree at any university in the Baltic states or elsewhere.

The conference will cover the following aspects of the society and culture of the Baltic countries:

  • language and linguistics
  • literature, folklore and arts
  • cultural and biographical studies
  • media, film and communication
  • history and memory

The working languages of the conference are Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian, English and Swedish. The presentations can be given in any language mentioned above; however, the abstract and presentation slides are in English. There will be approximately 65 conference speakers.
