University of Oregon campus, April 6-7, 2018
To mark its fiftieth anniversary, Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies at the University of Oregon will be holding an interdisciplinary conference on Russia and the Pacific Northwest on Friday, April 6 and Saturday, April 7, 2018. Presentations on all aspects of the topic, such as the history of Russian trade and colonization, Russian émigré literature of the area, environmental and immigrant history, as well as topics centered in such disciplines as linguistics, anthropology, religious studies and art, are solicited. The Pacific Northwest is understood as encompassing northern California, Oregon, Washington, Western coastal Canada, Alaska and Hawaii. The working language of the conference will be English.
Conference organizers invite interested scholars to submit a 300-word abstract, along with a brief CV (1-3 pages) to the email addresses below. The conference will underwrite airfare, hotels and meals for participants.
Deadline for receipt of paper proposals is 5 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on Friday, September 1, 2017.
Send proposals and brief CVs to:
Katya Hokanson, firstname.lastname@example.org
Ryan Jones, email@example.com
Are there going to be any speakers, papers or representatives from the Native view point?
And excellent question. I’d suggest contacting the organizers, but frankly since the conference is so early in it’s organization process I doubt they’ll be able to provide many specific details about the content. (This is a CFP, not a programme yet)
