The Undergraduate Journal of SLAVIC and EAST/CENTRAL EUROPEAN STUDIES
From the General Editor, Yelena Furman:
It is my pleasure to welcome into existence the first issue of the Undergraduate Journal of Slavic and East/Central European Studies, which is intended as an annual publication of the proceedings of the University of California undergraduate conference. My sincerest thanks go to all those who helped put this issue together, including Olga Kagan of UCLA, who came up with the idea of the Journal and helped it along at every stage. All of us are very grateful to the twelve contributors for providing us with a stimulating and varied first issue, and we look forward to submissions from future conference participants.
