The Central Slavic Conference (CSC) is a regional affiliate of the Association for Slavic, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES), 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 in the fall in St. Louis, Missouri.
