The Central Slavic Conference (CSC) is a regional affiliate of the Association for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, a scholarly society and the leading private organization in the world dedicated to the advancement of knowledge about the former Soviet Union (including Eurasia) and Eastern and Central Europe.
The CSC is the oldest regional affiliate of ASEEES, founded in 1962. We are a professional organization that promotes inter- and multi-disciplinary scholarship on Slavic and Eastern European-Eurasian topics in a seven-state region including Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Colorado, though the organization's members come from across the United States and around the world. The organization's most important event is an Annual Meeting that, since 2007, has taken place alongside the International Studies Association - Midwest in early November, in St. Louis, MO.
The Central Slavic Conference is pleased to invite interested members of the community to attend the Conference's Annual Meeting. The program will feature scholars of many disciplines working in Slavic, Eurasian, and East European studies. The meeting will be held in conjunction with the 2013 International Studies Association - Midwest Conference. The CSC especially encourages all current and former members to join us in St. Louis for a special celebration of the CSC's past and vision of its future. For more information on the Central Slavic Conference, please see the attached.
The current President of the CSC is Dr. David Borgmeyer, Director of the Center for International Studies at Saint Louis University.
