Call for Papers

21st Annual Czech & Slovak Studies Workshop

April 29-30, 2022 at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill 

The Twenty-first Annual Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop, which will be held at UNC-Chapel Hill on April 29-30, 2022, welcomes papers on Czech and Slovak topics, broadly defined, in all disciplines. In the past our interdisciplinary conference has drawn participants from colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. Areas of interest have been: anthropology, architecture, art, economics, education, film, geography, history, Jewish studies, literature, music, philosophy, politics, religion, society, sociology, and theater. Work in progress is appropriate for our workshop format. Junior faculty and advanced graduate students are particularly encouraged to participate. 

This year’s program will also include an invited lecture by Pieter Judson of the European University Institute in Florence. 

The deadline for submitting proposals is January 21, 2022. The steering committee will review the proposals the following week. 

Applications should include: 

  • Paper abstract of approximately 250 words that includes your name and a paper title 
  • Curriculum vitae 
  • Please also indicate whether or not you have attended a Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop in the past. 

Application materials, as well as any questions, should be emailed to Chad Bryant at with the subject heading “Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop.” 

We look forward to your proposals.
