2009 AAASS Conference in Boston

The 2009 American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies (AAASS) Conference will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, from November 12-15, 2009. AAASS is a non-profit, non-political organization, dedicated to the advancement of scholarly research about the former Soviet Union (including Eusrasia), and Central and Eastern Europe.

The annual conference brings together the leading international scholars in the areas of Slavic Studies, Baltic Studies, Central Asian Studies, Caucasus Studies, Balkan Studies, and Germanic Studies. As part of the conference, there are special sessions dedicated to Slavic librarians, archivists and curators, -- allowing for the exchange of information about collection development, research opportunities, and new scholarly resources. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to those vendors specializing in Slavic Studies, to meet with faculty and subject bibliographers.
