Organizational Links

The Society for Romanian Studies maintains close ties with a number of other scholarly organizations. Chief among them is the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (ASEEES), which every November organizes an annual meeting that is well attended by SRS members. Our annual general meeting is also hosted by the ASEEES conference, and the SRS is able to sponsor a panel at that conference. For more details, contact the SRS President, Lavinia Stan (StFX, lstan@stfx.ca) or the SRS Vice-President, Margaret Beissinger (Princeton University, mhbeissi@princeton.edu).
