Western Slavic & Eurasian Association

The Western Slavic & Eurasian Association (WSEA formerly the Western Association of Slavic Studies, previously Rocky Mountain Association for Slavic Studies) is a regional affiliate of ASEEES concentrated in the western part of the United States and Canada. The organization comprises scholars in multiple disciplines who are interested in the disciplines of humanities, arts, and social sciences as they relate to Russia, the former Soviet Union, Central and Eastern Europe, and Central Asia. Scholars from all parts of the United States and Canada are welcome at its annual meetings which are held in conjunction with the Western Social Science Assocation, of which WSEA is an affiliated member. The WSEA promotes both single discipline and interdisciplinary studies at these annual meetings providing for lively and exciting discussions between scholars and policy-makers. The Western Slavic & Eurasian Association also acts as the regional host when ASEEES meets on the West Coast. At its annual meetings a $100 prize is awarded to the best graduate student paper presented.
