     Mid-waged: 50 EUR;
     Low-waged: 20 EUR;
     Unwaged, students, freelancers, and unaffiliated: free.

2. For unwaged, students, freelancers, and unaffiliated participants, free accommodation will be provided in the university dorm/hotel, including breakfast, within the limit of available places.

3. We will provide options for affordable food and refreshments for the duration of the conference, as well as a free meal (lunch or dinner buffet) per day for all conference participants. Updates will follow over the next months.

Apart from papers and panels, which can be submitted via the online form, we warmly welcome proposals for roundtables, book launches, debates, workshops, etc. Please send a brief description (300 words) of your planned event, including bios of all participants to:
