      CFP- Soyuz Annual Symposium, February 7-8, 2003, UMass Amherst
      2003 ANNUAL SOYUZ SYMPOSIUM
      Ethnographies of Postsocialism
      University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Massachusetts February 7-8, 2003
      SOYUZ, the Network of Postsocialist Cultural Studies invites paper
      submissions for its 2003 meeting. Presentations may be from any discipline
      (anthropology, sociology, folklore, political science, history, literary
      criticism, etc.) and may focus on any aspect of social life - religion,
      politics, economics and exchange, kinship and the family, gender, language,
      the arts - but papers must strive to creatively and successfully combine
      solid ethnographic and/or empirical evidence with cultural theory. We hope
      to be able to make travel subsidies available for up to two foreign
      presenters (from the region), and to be able to offer a limited number of
      travel grants to graduate students. Panelists will be encouraged to publish
      their papers in the Anthropology of East Europe Review.
      Soyuz is an official interest group of the American Anthropological
      Association. Its members are scholars of a variety of disciplines who share
      an interest in ethnographic, historical, and cultural studies approaches to
      scholarly inquiry of the former socialist world. The symposium, held
      annually since the early 1990s, is at once an intimate forum where scholars
      can exchange ideas and engage in dialogue, and the site of cutting edge
      presentations from some of the most exciting thinkers within the subfield.
