The Midwest Slavic Association would also like to announce Between Shots, a series of focused panels within the Midwest Slavic Conference dedicated to film and visual culture in this region. It highlights film and animation, photography & multimedia art, graphic narrative and graphic design. Each year Between Shots also offers a screening of a film from Central/Southeastern Europe, with a corresponding panel discussion. Selected panels will be sponsored by the OSU Polish Studies Initiative and other cooperating cultural
foundations, therefore limited support for travel and lodging may be available to participants in these sessions. Anyone interested in participating in the Between Shots series should include that information in the email with his/her abstract and C.V.
