The KK Rev. editor Ursula Reber has already announced it 6 days ago, as I just found out, but there are indeed some good news to share: Both of us will be organizing an international workshop entitled "Balkan Studies: Quo Vadis?"  (one alternative suggestion was "Balkan Studies in Crisis?", just to give you an idea of what we'll be up to), which is now confirmed to take place in Vienna on Saturday April 25, 2008. This has been made possible largely thanks to funding by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science and Research, which has enabled us to make the workshop a truly international one by being able to invite an attractive round scholars from and/or working in Bulgaria, Turkey, the USA, Germany, and Austria, to speak and discuss on a tightly packed Saturday in spring. A sort of preliminary abstract has been posted by Usha here. We will definitely keep you updated on the manner. A tentative program will be made available shortly.
