Dear Colleagues,

I have been asked by Professor Heather Coleman to be the guest editor of a special issue of Canadian Slavonic Papers/Revue canadienne des slavistes devoted to the topic of Historical Memory and the Second World War in Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus. Papers should be no more than 25 pages double-spaced. Manuscripts may be in English or French. The normal peer review process will apply. Contributors must adhere to the CSP's usual guidelines for the format of submissions, with a short abstract, and formatted according to the instructions provided: http://www.ualberta.ca/~csp/Submissions.html#Guidelines

Because Canadian Slavonic Papers/Revue canadienne des slavistes is a member-supported journal, all potential authors are required to be/become members of the Canadian Association of Slavists. This can be done easily online: http://www.ualberta.ca/~csp/Membership.html

The publication date for this issue is Fall 2012, marking the 70th anniversary of the German defeat at Stalingrad.
Expressions of intent to submit: 1 October 2011.

Please send email to the Guest Editor, Prof. David R. Marples: drmarples@gmail.com

Final paper with abstract: 1 March 2012. Please submit manuscripts in a hard copy and by email to me at the address listed below.

We are pleased to introduce you the website www.genderstudies-ukraine.org

www.genderstudies-ukraine.org is a new website in Ukraine. Founded in 2008, it is the first and a unique networking project about women´s and gender studies in Ukraine. The aim of the website is to offer a communication platform between Ukrainian and foreign researchers in the field of womens´s and gender studies and also to inform the international audience about women’s and gender studies in Ukraine. Thus it will help to improve cooperation and scientific exchange in the field of women’s and gender studies between Ukraine and other countries.

The main menus of the website www.genderstudies-ukraine.org (“topics”, “researchers”, “news” and “links”) provide at the moment - in German und Ukrainian - all the important information which is necessery for effective networking with Ukrainian researchers. A topic catalogue with the following items helps to find researchers in the respective fields, identify topics of research, fields of interest and the various aspects of gender studies in Ukraine: Women´s History, Gender Identity, Gender Equality, Politics, Mass Media, Education, Ecology, Sexuality, Language, Economics, Medicine, Male Gender Roles, Gender Stereotypes, Psychology, Violence and Law.

In order to keep up with developing research, Ukrainian researchers in women`s and gender studies can submit their publication list and further scientific information with the help of a questionaire which can be downloaded.

English and Russian versions are being planned.
