Workshop for Graduate Students of Soviet History

This year’s workshop will begin in mid-October and meet once a month through mid-May. Ideally, each meeting should feature two graduate students – one from the EUSP and one from a foreign institution – who would precirculate works in progress such as grant proposals, conference papers, or dissertation chapters on related topics. Participation is expressly open to students in other disciplines, including art history, sociology, anthropology, political science, and Slavic studies.

Students interested in presenting their work this fall should submit a 300-word abstract of their papers and a CV to the email address below by September 1. Applicants for spring semester sessions may submit their materials through December 31. Funding is available for presenters who would be traveling to St. Petersburg from Moscow or elsewhere in Russia or neighboring countries. Students who would like to attend the workshop should send along their contact information to keep them informed of the schedule.

The workshop for graduate students of Soviet history at the History Department of the European University at Saint Petersburg will be continuing this coming academic year. The workshop brings together EUSP students and foreign students currently conducting archival research in Russia and neighboring countries. The primary goal of the workshop is twofold: first, to enrich participants’ research projects and promote an exchange of knowledge about relevant historiographies, methodologies, and archival and other sources; and second, to create a larger and more international academic community for participants, and thus to offer them a network of international contacts on which to draw for intellectual as well as professional ends.

This past spring, during the workshop’s inaugural semester, presenters included doctoral candidates from Harvard University and the University of California at Berkeley.
