CfP: 31st Annual Slavic Forum, University of Chicago, Abstract Deadline February 28

Revised Call for Papers for the 31st Annual Slavic Forum

The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at The
University of Chicago is pleased to announce our upcoming graduate
student conference, the 31st Annual Slavic Forum, centered on post-
WW II questions in Eastern European and Slavic cultures. This year
the conference will take place on Friday, May 13th and Saturday, May
14th, 2011. The conference will consist of formal panels, informal
roundtables, and a keynote lecture.

We invite abstracts for individual papers, 20 minutes in length, from
Master’s or Ph.D. students in Slavic studies and related fields,
including linguistics, literature, history, gender studies, art history,
music, theater arts, film, as well as any other disciplines related to
the topic of the conference. The Slavic Forum committee will
organize panels following the acceptance of papers to the
conference.

Papers accepted to the 31st Annual Slavic Forum will be published in
an electronic collection of working papers from the conference. A
style sheet will be distributed following the acceptance of papers to
the conference and authors will be given a chance to revise their
papers and include comments from the conference prior to
publication.

The revised deadline for all abstract proposals is February 28th,
2011. Please send a brief abstract (300 words or less) and a short
bio to szawara@uchicago.edu and zmandusic@uchicago.edu.
Examples and references are not included in the word count. Please
include your name and affiliation at the top of the abstract but not in
the body, so that we may make them anonymous for refereeing and
easily identify them afterwards. All abstracts will be refereed and
participants will be notified by mid-March. Please also note any
equipment that might be needed for the presentation. The Slavic
Forum committee will strive to meet all equipment needs, but cannot
make any guarantees due to budget limits.
