Czech & Slovak Studies Workshop

2018 Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop, Columbia University, New York

The Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop aims to bring together researchers, scientists, faculty members and advanced graduate students to exchange their experiences, research results, and ideas.

The CSSW entered its twentieth year in 2020 and is now sponsored by the Czechoslovak Studies Association as well as the Slovak Studies Association. The program committee typically 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.

New work in progress is appropriate for our workshop format. Each speaker is typically allotted a 50-minute slot divided between a presentation and active discussion. Junior faculty and advanced graduate students are particularly encouraged to participate. Whether you are a graduate student or faculty member, the organizers of the CSSW are happy to consider your application to present your research at the workshop. 

The announcement and call for papers for the annual workshop typically appears in November with applications due by January. The workshop takes place each spring at a designated university in the U.S. (Watch this webpage for additional information).
