6th Biennial AWSS Conference: Women, Gender, and Revolution in Slavic Studies
Event time: April 10, 2014
Even place: Atlanta, GA
Deadline: December 15, 2013

The Association for Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS) is soliciting paper presentations on the theme of “Women, Gender, and Revolution in Slavic Studies” for its 6th Biennial Conference to be held on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Atlanta, GA. The conference will be held in conjunction with the 52nd Annual Meeting of the Southern Conference on Slavic Studies (SCSS), which opens Thursday evening and runs through Saturday. The theme of women, gender, and revolution can be approached in a variety of ways. Most concretely, the these addressed the actions of men and women in political revolution, broadly conceived, including (but not limited to) events of 1848, 1905, and 1917, events leading up to the fall of Communism in Eastern Europe, and the post-Community transformations after 1989. The theme also invites the study of gendered representations of revolutionary events, and of significant transformation in gender roles at any time in Russia and East European History.

The keynote talk for the conference will be delivered by Janet Johnson, Associate Professor of Political Science and Women’s Studies at Brooklyn College, City University of New York. Dr. Johnson (PhD 2001, Indiana University-Bloomington) is an expert on gender, violence, and civil society in post-communist transitions in Eastern Europe. She has published and spoken widely on these subjects. Her talk at the conference will be on “Revolutionizing Gender Studies”: Though not everyone understands it, the study of women in Slavic Studies revolutionized gender studies by clarifying that change of regime–such as from communism to post-communism–radically alters gender. Russia’s recent move toward authoritarian should also make us re-think gender, this time by highlighting the role of informal networks, practices, and institutions. Gender-blind social scientists are claiming these notions as their own, even though they have been hidden there all along in gender studies, especially among those of us who study places outside of Western Europe and North America.

The conference organizers invite proposals from scholars at all stages in their careers and in any discipline of Slavic Studies (history, literature, linguistics, political science, sociology, anthropology, economics, gender studies, etc.). Proposals should consist of a 250-word abstract of the paper (including the paper’s title) and a brief one-page CV that includes author’s affiliation and contact information. Proposals are due by December 15 to Sharon Kowalsky, Associate Professor of History, Texas A&M University-Commerce, Participants will be notified of their acceptance approximately four weeks after the proposal deadline. Any questions about the conference or the program should be directed to Sharon Kowalsky or Karen Petrone.

Trust and Happiness in the History of Political Thought
Event time: 17-19 September, 2014
Event place: Central European University, Budapest, Hungary
Deadline: 15 March, 2014

In political and public discourse, as well as in political science and theory, debates concerning trust, fidelity, happiness, well-being, social contract and capital, and the connections between them, have intensified over the past two decades. The Society, now invites proposals that bring the perspectives and methods of the history of political thought to bear on these concepts and connections in ancient, medieval, and modern European contexts. Prospective participants are also encouraged to reflect on the wider implications of their empirical topic for the state of the art and the overall relevance of the field. A round-table discussion during the conference is also planned to address these issues.

Please send your proposals for individual papers (max. 200 words) or full panels (max. 600 words) with a short CV to by 15 January, 2014. Please note that incomplete or late proposals will not be accepted. We hope to notify the authors of accepted proposals before 15 March, 2014.
