CALL FOR PAPERS: The Seventeenth Annual Czech Studies Workshop, which will be held at UNC-Chapel Hill on April 20-22, 2017, welcomes papers on Czech topics, broadly defined, in all disciplines. Slovak topics will also be considered. In the past our interdisciplinary conference has drawn participants from colleges and universities in the United States and abroad. Areas of interest have been: anthropology, architecture, art, economics, education, film, geography, history, Jewish studies, literature, music, philosophy, politics, religion, society, sociology, and theater. Work in progress is appropriate for our workshop format. Junior faculty and advanced graduate students are particularly encouraged to participate.

This year’s program will also include a concert by the Defiant Requiem Foundation and an invited lecture by Petr Roubal of the Institute for Contemporary History in Prague.

The deadline for submitting proposals is January 9, 2017.
