The Twentieth Annual Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop will be held at the University of Pittsburgh on March 19-21, 2020. The program committee welcomes proposals for papers on Czech and Slovak topics, broadly defined, in all disciplines.

The Czech and Slovak Studies Workshop aims to bring together researches, scientists, faculty members and advanced graduate students to exchange their experiences, research results, and ideas.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Pavol Demeš, an internationally recognized NGO leader who opened German Marshall Fund (GMF) of the United States office in Bratislava, Slovak Republic, in 2000 in order to oversee GMF’s activities in Central and Eastern Europe. Before joining GMF, Demeš was executive director of the Slovak Academic Information Agency – Service Center for the Third Sector, a Slovak NGO committed to enhancing civil society. Previously, he served his country as foreign policy advisor to the president of the Slovak Republic (1993-1997), minister of international relations (1991-1992), and director of the Department of Foreign Relations in the Ministry of Education (1990-1991).
The workshop is a collaboration of the University of Pittsburgh, the Czechoslovak Studies Association, and the Slovak Studies Association.
