Call for Papers: Czech Studies Workshop, 29-30 April 2011, Columbia University, New York, NY. Deadline: 15 January 2011

We received the following from the organizers of the Czech Studies Workshop. We encourage the participation of Slovak Studies Association members who can present on topics that concern both Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

The Twelfth Annual Czech Studies Workshop, which will be held at
Columbia University on April 29-30, 2011, welcomes proposals for
papers on Czech topics, broadly defined, in all disciplines. Slovak
topics will also be considered.

In the past, our interdisciplinary conference has drawn participants
from colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. Areas
of interest have included: anthropology, architecture, art, economics,
education, film, geography, history, Jewish studies, literature,
music, philosophy, politics, religion, society, and theater. Work in
progress is appropriate for our workshop format, and junior faculty
and advanced graduate students are particularly encouraged to
participate.

Limited funding is available to reimburse participantsÂ’ travel and
accommodation costs.

To submit a proposal for the workshop, please send an abstract of
approximately 250 words to: czechstudiesworkshop2011@yahoo.com ,
