Please also send the following information to Prof. Yelena Furman  at yfurman@humnet.ucla.edu: your name, preferred email, paper title, and name and email of your advisor. Please do this now even if you are planning to submit your paper later so that we have a preliminary headcount.  

It is expected that you will work with your advisor between now and the submission deadline on revising your paper. Your papers should have a well-formulated and well-developed thesis, with plenty of textual evidence to back it up. When citing a non-English language source, please give the quote in the English translation in the body, and in the original language in the footnotes. Your paper must contain evidence of research, in the form of direct citation, in a Slavic and/or East/Central European language.    

The papers should be between 15 and 25 double-spaced pages, including footnotes and a Works Cited list. For the Works Cited, please use the Chicago Manual of Style format (available online). Please send your submission as a .doc or .docx file; do not send pdfs.
