The 47th annual meeting of the Southern Conference on Slavic Studies (SCSS) will take place in Charlottesville, VA, on March 26-28, 2009 (please note corrected dates). The purpose of SCSS is to promote scholarship, education, and in all other ways to advance scholarly interest in Russian, Soviet, and East European studies in the Southern region of the United States and nationwide. Papers from all humanities and social science disciplines are welcome and encouraged, as is a focus on countries other than Russia/USSR. The program committee is accepting panel and paper proposals until January 16, 2009. Whole panel proposals (chair, three papers, discussant) are preferred, but proposals for individual papers are also welcome. Whole panel proposals should include the titles of each individual paper as well as a proposed title for the panel itself and identifying information (including email addresses and institutional affiliations) for all participants. Proposals for individual papers should include email contact, institutional affiliation, and a brief (one paragraph) abstract to guide the program committee in the assembly of panels.
The conference will be held at the Omni Charlottesville Hotel in beautiful downtown Charlottesville. Charlottesville is accessible by three airports: the Charlottesville-Albemarle County Airport; the Richmond airport (about 45 min. away); and Washington, DC area airports (about 2 hours away).
