Call for Papers 13th Annual Graduate Symposium on Russian and East European Studies Charlottesville, Virginia April 4-5, 1997
As Co-Chairman of the program committee for the 13th Annual Graduate Symposium on Russian and East European Studies, I would like cordially to invite paper proposals for our conference. It is devoted to providing graduate students the opportunity to present and discuss their work in Slavic and East European fields, and the Symposium is one of the few scholarly forums available exclusively for graduate students. We will accept papers discussing issues related to Russia and Eastern Europe from a variety of disciplines. Past panels have been in history, international relations, linguistics, folklore, literature, comparative economics, and anthropology. Upon acceptance of all the papers, we will organize refereed sessions based upon subjects addressed. In recognition of the Russian Revolution's 80th anniversary, we will have a panel discussion of the communist legacy in Eastern Europe and Russia, 1917-1991. We encourage papers addressing aspects to this topic. Abstracts should be submitted no later than FEBRUARY 1, 1997. We encourage you to submit your abstract via our application web page: Final drafts of accepted papers must be submitted by March 15. Outstanding papers will be published in an electronic journal on the World Wide Web, known as the "Graduate Compendium." Further information can be found at the journal's web page: Papers not submitted through our application web page may be mailed to: Graduate Symposium Center for Russian and East European Studies Levering Hall University of Virginia Charlottesville, Virginia 22901 United States of America Any questions?
