Welcome to the 2021 MWSC

The Midwest Slavic Association (MWSA) and the Center for Slavic and East European Studies (CSEES) at The Ohio State University welcome undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars from the Midwest and beyond to join us for the 2021 Midwest Slavic Conference, April 15-18, 2021. We are excited to host the conference for the first-time ever in an online, virtual format. The conference will take place over several days and include the same variety of panels, lectures, and networking events to foster a stimulating, diverse environment to further discussions and research about Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

Moving forward, this website and blog will be the online home for the conference. As we release details and planning items, all of that information you will be able to find here. We will create pages for the CFP, schedule, special events, panel sessions, and individual presentations. Blogs will open for potential participants to exchange information and ideas to encourage forming panels. As part of the conference, blogs will be dedicated to subject areas for the individual presentations. All special events, panel sessions, and online discussion rooms for the individual presentations will be conducted via Zoom. Registration and Zoom links will be provided for those via the schedule page.

This is a new endeavor for us, but we hope that you will find it to be an engaging, accessible, and professional way to maintain the conference and your professional work during this challenging time, and we hope to welcome you back to Columbus, Ohio for an in-person conference in 2022!
