Emigration and Exile from Central and Eastern Europe in the Twentieth
Toronto, February 2000
The Association of Slavic Graduate Students in conjunction with the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Toronto is currently accepting proposals for a 3-day Conference on Emigration and Exile from Central and Eastern Europe in the Twentieth Century, to be held in February 2000. Abstracts of 1 page or less should be sent to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org before November 1, 1999. This interdisciplinary conference will focus on formulating, interpreting and debating the concepts of emigration and exile in the light of theorizing the notions of wandering and homelessness, the desire and need for rootedness. The issues of emigration and exile during and after the pressures of Russian and Soviet colonialism will be dealt with extensively over the 3 days of the conference. Our goal is to facilitate interaction between graduate students and young and established scholars in the social sciences and humanities. A broad range of papers will be heard, including topics from Literature, Linguistics, History, Political Science and Anthropology. The University of Toronto is Canada's largest university and as such the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures is able to offer the most comprehensive range of Slavic and non-Slavic languages and literatures in North America, including Croatian, Czech, Estonian, Finnish, Hungarian, Macedonian, Polish, Russian, Serbian, Slovak and Ukrainian. We encourage you to participate in this unique experience. The Association of Slavic Graduate Students (ASGS) at the University of Toronto.
