CALL FOR PAPERS FOR A PANEL OR TWO AT CONGRESS 2015
 

Congress 2015 takes place at the University of Ottawa.  The Canadian Association of Slavists’ meetings are scheduled for Saturday, 30 May through Monday, 1 June, and the Canadian Political Science Association, Tuesday, 2 to Thursday, 4 June.
 

I should like to assemble one or more panels devoted to the topic of “Postcommunist Elections in 2014,” or perhaps “Recent Postcommunist Elections,” and am soliciting expressions of interest from colleagues willing to present a research paper focussing on a particular country or comparative problem.  Please contact me as soon as convenient so that a proper full-panel proposal can be submitted to the CAS and/or CPSA programme committee in good time.
 

As an aide memoire, here is a list of some elections taking (or having taken) place in 2014 and 2013 in Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union.

I also wonder if anyone is interested in the topic of Undeclared Wars and Insurgencies, having primarily in mind the situation in Ukraine but looking at it from historical and comparative perspectives.  Any suggestions?
 

Please pass this information on to anyone else you feel may be interested.
 

Thank you very much.

Sincerely,
