SSRC Dissertation Development Workshop: Globalizing Eurasia? Impacts on the Region and the World (SSRC/Harvard. October 5-7, 2010)

Application Submission Deadline: August 15, 2010


Globalizing Eurasia? Impacts on the Region and the World
October 5-7, 2010
Davis Center for Russian & Eurasian Studies
Harvard University


THE EURASIA PROGRAM of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC), in partnership with Harvard University's Kathryn W. and Shelby Cullom Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, invites applications for a three-day interdisciplinary dissertation development workshop for doctoral students.

What factors affect Eurasia and its relationship with the world? The conceptual frameworks associated with globalization invite questions concerning the importance of social and cultural place, the definitions of geographic and conceptual regions, and the nature of national economic institutions, environmental issues, and political identities. To what extent can the conceptual frameworks of globalization enhance our understanding of Eurasia? How can the varied and complex experiences of Eurasia challenge and expand our understanding of globalization?

This dissertation development workshop will convene junior scholars interested in these questions for an intensive workshop led by a group of interdisciplinary senior scholars. The workshop will bring together PhD candidates from across the social science disciplines.

We welcome work ranging from interpretive categories (e.g., empire, state, ethnicity, modernity or authoritarianism) to transnational processes (for example, development, trade, migration, health, terrorism, languages or Diasporas).

Following a workshop format, the meeting will provide opportunities to discuss ideas and research plans, solicit feedback from fellow dissertators and nationally known resource faculty, and enhance scholarly networks and contacts.

For additional details please contact program staff at eurasia@ssrc.org

Funding is provided by the United States Department of State, Program for Research and Training for Eastern Europe and the Independent States of the Former Soviet Union (Title VIII).
