The Ellison Center for Russian, East European and Central Asian Studies at the University of Washington are currently soliciting papers, panels or roundtable presentations for this one-day interdisciplinary conference.
This year REECAS NW will be held at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA on May 2, 2015. We welcome students, faculty and staff from institutions of higher learning from throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as K-12 educators (7 WA state clock hours available for attending the full day) and the general public. Admission to the conference is free.
Contributions are encouraged on area studies, literature, the fine arts, the environment, post-Soviet foreign policy, historical research, economics, national identity or any other relevant subjects. The conference will also feature a track for K-12 educators teaching area languages at the K-12 level. Presentations on best practices, curriculum and other relevant issues regarding instruction of area languages at the K-12 level are especially welcome. K-12 educators are not required to submit a paper, but must submit an abstract by the March 9, 2015 deadline.
