CFP: Southern Conference on Slavic Studies (Tuscaloosa, Alabama)

Deadline for Proposals: January 15, 2016

The Fifty-Fourth Annual Meeting of the Southern Conference on Slavic Studies (SCSS) will be held 17-19 March 2016 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in downtown Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  The meeting will be hosted by the University of Alabama and the City of Tuscaloosa. The SCSS is the largest of the regional Slavic and Eurasian Studies associations and its programs attract national and international scholarly participation.  The purpose of SCSS is to promote scholarship, education, and in all other ways to advance scholarly interest in Russian, Soviet, East European, and Eurasian studies in the Southern region of the United States and nationwide.  Membership in SCSS is open to all persons interested in furthering these goals.

Papers from all humanities and social science disciplines are welcome and encouraged, as is a focus on countries other than Russia/USSR.  Papers and panels on all topics will be considered. The program committee is accepting panel and paper proposals until January 15, 2015. 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 title for the panel itself and identifying information (email addresses and institutional affiliations) for all participants. Proposals for individual papers should include paper title, email contact, institutional affiliation, and a brief (one paragraph) abstract to guide the program committee in the assembly of panels.  If any AV equipment will be needed, the panel or paper proposals should indicate so when submitted. AV will be of limited availability and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.  Email your proposals to Alice Pate at apate9@kennesaw.edu, or send it by conventional post to:
