Midwest Slavic — More than Midwestern, More than Slavic

This weekend’s virtual/hybrid/asynchronous/distanced event brought together colleagues and research topics from India and Indiana, Kyiv and California, Tashkent and Tajikistan, Poznan and Penza and Pennsylvania. Thanks to all who participated.

Feel free to network across the platform, read and watch the individual presentations (using your individual session password), comment on the blog. Papers/presentations remain available until FRIDAY April 23! We’ll be contacting conference goers to hear your praise and critiques. It’s good to learn of technical problems and get suggestions for how to improve … but we’re not sure when (or if) we’ll utilize this format again! Thank you all for your patience and professionalism, in particular the efforts made to ensure that this multi-generational multi-disciplinary conversation nurtures the young and feeds us all.

Hoping to invite you to Columbus in Spring of 2022!


Registration, panel schedule, and individual session information now available

We are excited to share a lot of information with you this week! Registration is now open for the conference. It is free and required for everyone to attend individual presentation or panel sessions. On the individual session page you will find much more detailed information about what to expect for these Friday afternoon sessions and a listing of presenters, papers, and session times. A panel schedule for Saturday is now published too. Please be advised that we have scheduled panels to allow for international participants to more easily participate, i.e. their panels have been scheduled for earlier in the day.

Working on details for the conference and events, more details very soon!

The conference committee has finished reviewing submissions and we’ve notified all participants.

We’ll publish the schedule for panels and presentations by March 22.

Please note that we have decided to shorten the conference. We will not be holding panels on Sunday, April 18. The conference will conclude on Saturday, April 17.

Stayed tuned! We’ll also have further details on the keynote, plenary, student events, and registration within the next week!

A throwback to the 2010 Midwest Slavic Conference at the Blackwell!
