ESSA - Call for Sponsored Panel at ASEEES 2023

News from the Early Slavic Studies Association:

The Early Slavic Studies Association calls for proposals for a sponsored panel at the 2023 ASEEES convention in Philadelphia. The panel papers may be in any discipline, and the panelists do not need to be ESSA members to be considered for sponsorship. The panel may be part of either the virtual or in-person conference.

ESSA statement on Ukraine

The Early Slavic Studies Association condemns Russia's attack on Ukraine. We are appalled at the historical distortions that Russia has used to justify its invasion, and we stand beside our colleagues, family, friends, and fellow citizens in Ukraine, as well as Russian colleagues opposing this violation of international law. The damage done, in loss of lives and loss of trust across countries of the Slavic world, will profoundly impact our colleagues, and we are eager to hear from members about how we can support anyone who may be affected by the ongoing crisis.
