The Fiftieth Anniversary SCSS Annual Meeting will be held in Savannah, Georgia on March 29-31, 2012, hosted by Armstrong Atlantic State University. The meeting will be held at the DeSoto Hilton, located right at the center of Savannah’s historic district. The SCSS is the largest of the regional Slavic and Eurasian studies associations and its programs attract national and international scholarly participation. The purpose of SCSS is to promote scholarship, education, and in all other ways to advance scholarly interest in Russian, Soviet, and East European studies in the Southern region of the United States and nationwide. Papers from all humanities and social science disciplines are welcome and encouraged, as is a focus on countries other than Russia/USSR. Papers and panels on all topics are welcome.
The program committee is accepting panel and paper proposals until January 10, 2012. Whole panel proposals (chair, three papers, discussant) are preferred, but proposals for individual papers are also welcome. Whole panel proposals should include the titles of each individual paper as well as a title for the panel itself and identifying information (including email addresses and institutional affiliations) for all participants. Proposals for individual papers should include email contact, institutional affiliation, and a brief (one paragraph) abstract to guide the program committee in the assembly of panels. If any AV equipment will be needed, the panel and paper proposals should indicate so.
