As a member of the Canadian Federation
for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS), the Canadian
Association of Slavists holds its annual conference in conjunction
with the Federation's Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences.

societies comprising the CFHSS also attend the congress, turning
the event into a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue
and networking. The congress routinely holds a Book Fair, featuring
many university presses and scholarly publishers.
