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 was established in 2000 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.  For more information, please contact us at slovakstudies@gmail.com


22nd Annual Czech & Slovak Studies Workshop: April 7-8, 2022 at The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

The Twenty-second Annual Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop, which will be held at UIUC on April 7-8, 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 and will get priority when it comes to accessing our limited funding for travel and accommodation.

This year’s program will also include an invited lecture by Karla Huebner of Wright State University. We plan to hold the workshop in person, with the understanding that these plans are subject to change.

The deadline for submitting proposals is January 20, 2023. 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 David Cooper at dlcoop@illinois.edu with the subject heading “Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop.” 

We look forward to your proposals.
