CALL FOR PAPERS/PANELS
   ASSOCIATION FOR WOMEN IN SLAVIC STUDIES CONFERENCE
   UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN
   URBANA, ILLINOIS
   JUNE 24-25, 2004


   AWSS invites proposals for individual papers and panels for our first
organizational conference at UIUC in June 2004. We welcome proposals in
any field of Slavic/Eurasian/East European studies, including
anthropology, art, film, history, library science, literature, music,
political science, popular culture, sociology, and, of course, any aspect
of women's studies.

Work that crosses or challenges disciplinary boundaries is very welcome.
Proposals for panels -- complete with chair and discussant -- are
encouraged, but not preferred. All presenters must be AWSS members by the
time they register for the event. The Conference committee is proposing
two workshops for the event -- "Career Planning" and "Getting Published"
-- but other workshop proposals are welcome.

All proposals must be submitted electronically to Professor Julie Brown,
University of North Carolina-Greensboro, via email, who will distribute
them to the multi-disciplinary Conference selection committee. ALL
PROPOSALS ARE DUE MARCH 1, 2004. Applicants will be notified about their
participation in the first week of April.

Proposals for panels/papers must include:

      1. A 150-word abstract for each paper
      2. A one-page c.v. for each participant

Proposals for workshops must include a brief description of the topic and,
if possible, should attach a list of possible presenters/facilitators.
