University of Virginia Slavic Forum “Crossroads and Terminals: Journeys, Wanderings, and Travel”
The University of Virginia Society of Slavic Graduate Students is sponsoring an interdisciplinary forum devoted to expeditions, wanderings, travels to distant places, and to return journeys back home.
Our journeys (real, virtual, and imaginary) inevitably lead to crossroads. In a world that is rapidly shifting technologically, culturally, and politically, our understand of home and the world outside is also shifting and expanding, calling for reassessments of our previously accepted notions.
Forum organized by the Society of Slavic Graduate Students, the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, the Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, the Department of French, the Department of English, the Department of Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Cultures, the American Studies Program, the Department of Religious Studies, Global Studies, European Studies, and The Program in Medieval Studies at the University of Virginia.
