About the Workshop

The Russian and East European History workshop exists primarily to provide graduate students with a venue for presenting and getting feedback on works-in-progress (dissertation chapters and prospectuses, conference papers and journal articles, etc.), all while enjoying some delicious food and drink. Our meetings follow a tried-and-true format whereby presenters speak about their work for roughly 15 minutes before we open the floor for discussion of the pre-circulated paper.


Interested graduate students, post-docs, faculty and visiting scholars are warmly invited to join our kruzhok. Feel free to contact Megan Duncan Smith (duncansmith[at]fas.harvard.edu) or Kelly O'Neill (koneill[at]fas.harvard.edu) with any questions.

*Please email Megan to be added to our mailing list and/or receive a copy of a pre-circulated paper.
*Our Fall 2014 and early 2015 schedule has been posted to the calendar (on the right). Please check back soon for our Spring 2015 presentation schedule.
