As Secretary of the Slovak Studies Association and co-program chair of the Czechoslovak Studies Association, I encourage you to contact me if you would like to coordinate on proposals for the November 2018 conference of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES) in Boston in the general area of Czech and Slovak studies. Both Associations have the right to forward one sponsored panel to the program committee, and in addition, if you have an individual paper or an incomplete panel, I would be happy to let you know of any scholar who contacts me with a paper or possible panel interest. I have also heard from scholars who would be willing to chair or serve as discussant.
You may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition, another ASEEES affiliate, Carpatho-Rusyn Research Center, is spearheading the organization of a series of panels and a roundtable on the centenary theme of the founding of the first Czechoslovak Republic. The concept is to develop a set of panels focused on the disciplines of history, literature and art and architecture, and that includes the experiences of Czechs, Slovaks, Jews, Ruthenians, Germans and Hungarians in 1918 and the First Republic. If you would like to be involved in this overview project, contact Nick Kupensky:
Submission deadlines for ASEEES convention is February 28, and the organization of a panel requires background information as well as paper and panel titles, so let me know as soon as you can. Thank you!
