Wisconsin Slavic Conference 2022

Wisconsin Slavic Conference 2022

Organized by Assel Almuratova, Jesse Kruschke, and Isabella Palange, this year’s Wisconsin Slavic Conference was held on March 25-26.

We thank Prof. Joanna Niżyńska (Indiana University), who gave an inspiring keynote talk titled “Polish-Jewish Memory Fifty Years after March ’68: A Challenge Map,” and Prof. José Vergara (Bryn Mawr), our returning PhD alum, who spoke with current graduate students and also gave a paper at the conference on Russian carceral narratives, the subject of his latest research project. We also thank all participants in the conference, who were graduate students from UW-Madison as well as other universities in North America. The conference program is here.

We congratulate Isabella Palange, who won this year’s J. Thomas Shaw Prize for Outstanding Conference Paper.
