The graduate students in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Chicago are 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. 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 conference will consist of formal panels, informal roundtables, and a keynote lecture. Panels will be organized by the Slavic Forum committee following the acceptance of papers to the conference.
The deadline for all abstract proposals is January 31st, 2011. Please send a brief abstract (300 words or less) and a short bio to szawara at uchicago dot edu and zmandusic at uchicago dot 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.
