Popular Culture During Late Socialism
The Czechoslovak Studies Association program committee is trying to help organize a panel on popular culture during late socialism (post 1968) for the 2011 ASEEES conference in Washington DC. If you have an idea for a paper that would fit this theme or any suggestions to offer, please contact either Melissa Feinberg ( or Caitlin Murdock (

The European Union and the Roma Question in the Czech Republic and Slovakia
I have done some work on this topic and am looking for anybody who might be interested in writing a paper or serve as a panel chair or discussant? Furthermore, if there is anybody having difficulty
forming a panel dealing with the Czech Republic or Slovakia and looking for paper writers, I might be interested. I have a fairly wide area of competence for both countries, in part because I am preparing a comparative volume. Thank you very much! I wish you much cheer into the
Christmas season and a Happy new Year 2011. With warm regards, Frank Cibulka
