Southern Conference on Slavic Studies (SCSS) and Association for Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS)
SCSS is the oldest and most active regional affiliate of the Association of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES). It promotes Slavic Studies in all disciplines throughout the Southern region of the United States, encompassing 14 Southern states from Virginia to Texas. The annual meeting provides a supportive and welcoming atmosphere, particularly for students but for established scholars as well, to present research and make connections.
AWSS will hold its 9th Biennial Conference in Mobile in March 14, 2019, in conjunction with SCSS. The AWSS Conference Theme, “Crossing Borders in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Women’s and Gender Studies,” seeks to draw attention to the myriad ways that Slavic Women’s and Gender Studies increasingly breaches national, disciplinary, and chronological boundaries.
AWSS and SCSS participants can register here for both conferences (one registration fee includes both conferences) and are encouraged to engage with both events. The AWSS Conference will be held all day on March 14, 2019, and will culminate in the joint AWSS/SCSS Reception on Thursday evening. The SCSS conference will begin with the Thursday reception and continue through Saturday. Plan to partake of both events.
