The Central Eurasian Studies Society (CESS) invites PAPER and ROUNDTABLE

proposals for the Sixth CESS Annual Conference, September 29-October 2,

2005, in Boston, Massachusetts.  The event will be hosted by Boston University.

Please note that this is an abbreviated version of the Call for Papers.

Please visit the CESS website :

http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Conference.html for full details, or

request a text version of the full Call for Papers by sending an email  to

<CESSconf@fas.harvard.edu>.

Paper and roundtable proposals relating to all aspects of humanities and

social science scholarship on Central Eurasia are welcome.  The geographic

domain of Central Eurasia extends from the Black Sea and Iranian Plateau

to Mongolia and Siberia, including the Caucasus, Crimea, Middle Volga,

Afghanistan, Tibet, and Central and Inner Asia.  Practitioners and

scholars in all humanities and social science disciplines with an

interest in Central Eurasia are encouraged to participate. The language

of the conference is English.

Based on past CESS conferences, we expect the 2005 conference to be lively

and well-attended by scholars from all over the world.  The program will

include panels and roundtables on a wide variety of topics related to

Central Eurasia. Please note that due to the high level of interest, and

the fact that the total number of people on the program will be limited to

no more than 400, we anticipate that the selection of papers will be very

competitive.  We also welcome attendees who do not wish to participate in a

panel (see the Registration/Pre-registration Form for information:

http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Conf-Reg.html).

The 2005 conference program will be organized differently than it has

been in the past, so please read the full Call for Papers (located at

http://cess.fas.harvard.edu/CESS_Conference.html ) carefully.  ROUNDTABLE

proposals will be evaluated by the Conference Committee.  PAPER proposals

will be submitted to a particular panel organizer from a list of panels

available on the conference website.  The person submitting the paper

proposal will inform CESS which panels the paper should be sent to.

Papers that are not accepted on a particular panel will then be sent

back to the Conference Committee for consideration on another panel.

Notifications of acceptances and rejections will be sent by June 1, 2005.

The Conference Committee accepts ONLY ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS --   either  by webform (see forms for Individual Papers and for Roundtable Panels at:
