Slavic Symposium Initiated

Posted: Monday, March 31, 2014

The Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures cordially invites you to the Slavic Symposium. The goal of the Slavic Symposium is to allow students and faculty to present their research work, share ideas and receive feedback in a friendly environment. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain more knowledge about current research in their field of expertise, and to learn how to give a presentation in a professional way. Senior students can use the Slavic Symposium for their proposal or dissertation defense. It is also a great opportunity for faculty to familiarize the department with their research and set a good example for students. The department can also invite people from other departments and
universities to present at the Slavic Symposium.

The Slavic Symposium takes place once a month from 12:30 to 2:30 pm in BH 005. The talks are about linguistics and literature. The presenters have about 30 minutes to acquaint the audience with their research and 15 minutes to take questions. Everyone is welcome and light snacks will be served.

The schedule for the spring semester is as follows:

February 14:
Craig Cravens, 12:30 - 1:15 pm (literature)
\"Dostoevsky in Bohemia\"
Steven Franks, 1:20 - 2:20 pm (linguistics)
