The Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Sciences (SVU) is pleased to announce its 2013 regional conference, to be held in the Pacific Northwest on the campus of the University of Washington in Seattle from August 29 to August 31, 2013 (with optional sightseeing extensions through September 2). The general theme of the conference will be “Czechs, Slovaks and North America: Destination, Example, Opportunity.”
Papers and panel proposals are urgently solicited on a wide range of subjects in the arts, humanities, and sciences. Proposals for complete panels are preferred, but individual papers will be reviewed and grouped into panels according to the decision of the conference organizers. General subject groupings may include: Politics, Economics, Business; Religion and Philosophy; Performing Arts; Plastic Arts; Technology and Industry; Medicine and Laboratory Science; Libraries and Librarians; Heritage Organizations; Immigration and Emigration; History; Czech/Slovak and Slavic Studies; Czech/Slovak and Slavic Linguistics; Language Teaching; Literature and Cinema; Sport. With a view to the region where the conference will be held, we encourage any work concerning Czechs and Slovaks in the Pacific Northwest.
Questions about planned submissions or the submissions process should be directed to Hugh Agnew (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lida Cope (email@example.com). Email your completed submission (title and 300 word abstract) to SVUConference2013@gmail.com by May 31, 2013.
Full conference details and application forms will be published in the next issues of Zprávy, posted on the SVU website, and distributed electronically. Panel and paper proposals may be submitted by anyone, but a lower registration fee will apply to SVU members in good standing. Information on the activities of SVU, as well as membership information and forms, can be found at http://www.svu2000.org/.
