56 - Canadian Association of Slavists (CAS)
The annual conference of the Canadian Association of Slavists will take place in virtual format in May 2022. The CAS Annual Conference is held as a part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences with more than 70 national associations in attendance. The theme of the 2022 Congress is “Transitions.”
Proposals for interdisciplinary panels with other associations are very welcome. They are always a highlight at the CAS conference. Additional funding from the Federation is available for such panels. Proposals are invited for individual papers, panels, and roundtable discussions. Complete panels are preferred.
The conference welcomes papers from the wide range of disciplines devoted to the study of central and eastern Europe, the Balkans, Eurasia, Russia, the Soviet Union, and the post-Soviet space. In the past, this has included panels on (in alphabetical order):
• Folklore and Ethnographies
• Linguistics (comparative and Slavic)
• Literatures and Cultures
• Pedagogy and Second Language Acquisition (teaching of individual skills; curriculum design, presentation of new teaching materials; use of technology in language teaching; study abroad; etc.).
• Politics, Policy and Governance
