BearTracks is the official newsletter of the Southern Conference on Slavic Studies. The Southern Conference on Slavic Studies is the oldest and largest affiliate of the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (formerly American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies). The purpose of SCSS is clear: to promote scholarship, education, and in all other ways to advance scholarly interest in Russian, Soviet, and East European studies in the Southern region of the United States.
Beartracks is now distributed by email to all members to facilitate a faster exchange of important information.
Every year for more than 50 years SCSS has sponsored a conference, bringing together the finest scholars in the country in an intellectually challenging yet friendly atmosphere. We encourage new faculty members and graduate students to participate in our meetings every spring. SCSS has over 350 members. Membership in SCSS is open to all persons interested in furthering these goals.
