The Central Slavic Conference is pleased to invite scholars of all disciplines working in Slavic, Eurasian, and East European studies to submit proposals for panels, individual papers, roundtables, and poster presentations at its annual meeting. It is held in conjunction with the 2012 International Studies Association Midwest Conference, which this year will be Nov. 1-4 at The Hilton at the Ballpark in St. Louis, MO.
The 2012 meeting is a special one, as it marks the 50th anniversary of the CSC. Founded in 1962 as the Bi-State Slavic Conference, the Central Slavic Conference now encompasses seven states and is the oldest of the regional affiliates of ASEEES (Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies).
In honor of the anniversary, there will be special events celebrating the past and future of the CSC. We will also partner with Saint Louis University to co-sponsor an exhibit of early Soviet anti-religious propaganda.
Proposals for paper, panel, roundtable, and poster presentations should be submitted by email to CSC President Dr. David Borgmeyer (email@example.com) no later than September 1st, 2012. Proposals should include:
* Participant name, affiliation, and email contact information;
* For individual paper / poster presentation: title and brief description (limit 50 words);
* For panels: panel title + above information for each participant and discussant (if applicable);
* For roundtable: roundtable title and participant information.
