Canadian Association of Slavists Annual Conference 
June 14-16, 2024 at McGill University in Montreal

The annual conference of the Canadian Association of Slavists will take place at McGill University (Montreal, Quebec) in early June 2023. The CAS Annual Conference is held as a part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences with more than 70 national associations in attendance. The theme of the 2024 Congress is “Sustaining Shared Futures.” More information is available here:

This year, the CAS conference overlaps with the annual meetings of a number of associations, including: Canadian Association of University Teachers of German, Canadian Association of Hispanists, Film and Media Studies Association of Canada, Canadian Political Science Association, Canadian Linguistic Association, Canadian Game Studies Association, Hungarian Studies Association of Canada, Canadian Disability Studies Association, Canadian Philosophical Association, Canadian Comparative Literature Association, the Canadian Society for the Study of Religion, and others. Please consult this calendar for the full list of associations, dates, and other details:

Proposals for interdisciplinary panels with other associations are very welcome. They are always a highlight at the CAS conference. Additional funding from the Federation is available for such panels. 

Proposals are invited for individual papers, panels, and roundtable discussions. Complete panels are preferred. 
Forms for panel, roundtable and individual proposals are available on the CAS website:  
Please follow our abstract specifications when submitting your proposal(s).

The conference welcomes papers from the wide range of disciplines devoted to the study of central and eastern Europe, the Balkans, Eurasia, Russia, the Soviet Union, and the post-Soviet space. In the past, this has included panels on (in alphabetical order):

• Cinema
• Folklore and Ethnographies
• History 
• Linguistics (comparative and Slavic) 
• Literatures and Cultures 
• Pedagogy and Second Language Acquisition (teaching of individual skills; curriculum design, presentation of new teaching materials; use of technology in language teaching; study abroad; etc.). 
• Politics, Policy and Governance 
• Religion 

The meeting of the Canadian Association of Ukrainian Studies (CAUS) is traditionally part of the CAS conference and therefore Ukrainian Studies are always very prominently represented at the CAS Annual Meeting, including panels on, for example, Ukrainian folklore and ethnography; diaspora studies; Ukrainian Canadian literature; museum studies; Holodomor studies; Ukrainian history, literature, politics, and culture.

Early career scholars and graduate students are especially encouraged to participate. We kindly ask our senior CAS membership to support graduate students in applying. Some funds are available to graduate students to help with the cost of attending the conference. An application form for the 2024 Travel Grant will be sent out in March 2024 by the Secretary-Treasurer and will also be available on the CAS website.

Deadline for all proposals is February 1, 2024.

All proposals should be sent to the Program Chair, Daniel W. Pratt at
