CESS Annual Conference, Ohio State University, Sept. 15-18, 2011

The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) invites panel and paper proposals for the Twelfth Annual CESS Conference, September 15-18, 2011, in Columbus, Ohio. The event will be held at Ohio State University, hosted by the Center for Slavic and East European Studies, the Middle East Studies Center and the East Asian Studies Center. Panels begin Friday morning, September 16, and continue through mid-day on Sunday, September 18.

Panel and paper topics relating to all aspects of humanities and social science scholarship on Central Eurasia are welcome. The geographic domain of Central Eurasia extends from the Black Sea and Iranian Plateau to Mongolia and Siberia, including the Caucasus, Crimea, Middle Volga, Afghanistan, Tibet, Xinjiang, and Central and Inner Asia. Practitioners and scholars in all humanities and social science disciplines with an interest in Central Eurasia are encouraged to participate.

The program will feature approximately 50 panels. There will also be a supplementary program including a welcome reception on Thursday, a conference dinner and a plenary speaker.

Deadline for submission of panel/paper proposals: Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Submissions of pre-organized panels are strongly encouraged and will be given some preference in the selection process. In forming panels, consider including scholars whose work is situated outside of Central Eurasia but who can speak to the panel topic thematically or comparatively, especially in discussant roles. For complete details, please see the complete Call for Papers (http://www.units.muohio.edu/cess/CFP_2011.html) on the CESS website.
