Eastern Europe without Borders–November 10, 2015

School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies, University College London

10 November 2015

9.15am-6pm. Followed by prosecco and canapés.

How can scholars working in the framework of East European studies engage with a world of people, objects, ideas and practices in motion?  How does looking beyond geographically bounded nation-states and regions enrich the possibilities of East European area studies? What are the practical implications for research, teaching and training? And how does such work in East European studies speak to scholars in other fields?  A workshop will be held in London on 10 November 2015 to consider these issues through the lens of recent research on three topics: cities, travellers, and networks/linkages.

This workshop will be preceded on 9th November by the linked conference “Area Studies in the 21st century”.

Speakers at “Eastern Europe without Borders” include:

  • Dr Michał Murawski  (SSEES, UCL)
  • Dr Carmen Popescu (Sorbonne)
  • Dr Vladimir Kulić (FAU Miami)
  • Dr Bernard Struck (St Andrews)
