CROATIAN ACTIVITIES
33rd National Convention of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies (AAASS)
 
     
The 33rd National Convention of the AAASS was held in Crystal City, Virginia (near Washington D.C.), from November 15-18, 2001. Although the weather was good and accommodations were satisfactory, the Convention was held under the shadow of the tragic events of September 11th. A number of panels were cancelled because many people decided not to travel. Two of the cancelled panels were organized by the Association for Croatian Studies (ACS) members. Those panels were “Cultural and Political Life in Renaissance Dubrovnik” and “Croatian Language and Holy Books of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries.” Our other scheduled panels were held, although some presenters on those panels did not make it to the Convention.

AMERICA UNDER ATTACK
On September 11, 2001, two commercial planes piloted by suicide hijackers slammed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and a third plane into the Pentagon, resulting in the deaths of thousands of innocent people. Both 110-story landmarks collapsed, the Pentagon was badly damaged, and a new type of war was launched against America and the western world. We express our sincere sympathy to all those who lost their relatives and friends in this great tragedy. A number of Americans of Croatian heritage are among those murdered senselessly on that Bloody Tuesday. Our condolences to their loved ones and to the Croatian community in New York.
