Plan to join us for the annual Western Association for Slavic Studies (WASS) conference. This year our host organization, the Western Social Science Association (WSSA), will be welcoming its 2,000+ members and participants to the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk, always a great site for a conference!
WASS invites proposals for individual papers, complete panels, and roundtable presentations in all areas of studies concerning Russia, the Former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and Central Asia. Topics related to our conference may include any aspect of culture, economics, history, literature, or politics with a broad chronological span from the Middle Ages to present. Contributions are encouraged from disciplines including (but not limited to): anthropology, archeology, architecture, arts, communication, cultural studies, demography, economics, education, environmental studies, ethnic and minority studies, film, gender studies, geography, history, international relations, Jewish studies, law, linguistics, literature, political science, psychology, religion, sociology, theatre, and travel.
The Western Association for Slavic Studies is a regional affiliate of the American Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, the principal scholarly organization in the world for these areas of interest. The Western Association for Slavic Studies encourages not only leading academics in the field, but especially graduate students to attend the conference. The WASS offers a $100 prize for the best graduate paper presented at the conference, and are also eligible the ASEEES’s and the WSSA’s graduate student paper prizes.
2018 Western Social Science Association Conference call for presentations and panels at WSSA’s 60th Annual Conference. The conference will be taking place at Hyatt Regency on the San Antonio Riverwalk during April 4-7, 2018.
