CFP Deadline Extended: 2022 Central Slavic Conference

Deadline: September 9, 2022

The Central Slavic Conference is pleased to invite scholars from all disciplines working in Slavic, Eurasian, and East European studies to submit proposals for panels, individual papers, and roundtables at its annual meeting to be held from Friday, October 21 until Sunday, October 23, 2022.

Founded in 1962 as the Bi-State Slavic Conference, the Central Slavic Conference now encompasses seven states and is the oldest of the regional affiliates of ASEEES (Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies). Scholars from outside the region and from around the world are welcome to participate.

Our conference will be a blend of in person and virtual sessions this year. The in person events are scheduled to take place on October 21 and 22 at the Missouri Athletic Club (MAC) and Hotel in St. Louis. The MAC offers special room rates for conference participants. Virtual sessions will be held on Sunday, October 23. While all participants can join the virtual sessions, technical limitations preclude our arranging for virtual participation in the in-person panels.

NOTE: Proposals for papers, panels, and roundtables should be submitted by email to CSC President Charles Allen at no later than FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9. The deadline has been extended to give a maximum number of people an opportunity to participate. Participants need to indicate in writing whether they plan to present in person or via Zoom and must abide by their choice. This is essential to ensure smooth planning of the conference. We ask for everyone’s support and understanding as we finalize the conference agenda and practicalities.

All proposals should include:

• Participant name, affiliation, and email contact information

• For individual paper presentations: title and description (100 words minimum)

• For panels: panel title + above information for each participant and discussant

• For roundtables: roundtable title and participant information

• For undergraduate presentations, the name of the faculty member who is supporting the participant

•  An indication of whether you will present Zoom or in-person.

In accordance with tradition, the CSC will dedicate a portion of the conference to undergraduate research presentations.

Conference fees are the same for in-person as well as virtual participation:

50 dollars for faculty

25 dollars for graduate students and undergraduates

Timberlake Memorial Graduate Paper Prize

Graduate students and undergraduates who present at the CSC Annual Meeting are invited to participate in the Charles Timberlake Graduate Paper Prize competition. Dedicated to the memory of Charles Timberlake as a teacher and mentor, the prizes carry a cash award. Separate prizes will be awarded to the graduate and undergraduate winners.

Please join us for what promises to be an exciting event. Be a part of the CSC’s amazing journey, which continues to evolve and has always engaged both students and established scholars.
