AWSSGRAD-L is a listserv for graduate students in Slavic, East European, and Central Eurasian studies, sponsored by the Association for Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS).
The primary purpose of AWSSGRAD-L is to encourage lively and professional discussion of the ins and outs of the graduate experience, which will help to ease the sense of isolation that is often felt by graduate students.
Discussions can include a broad range of topics, such as:
gender issues in our research, our departments, and in the profession;
current research and research interests;
methods and tools of analysis;
preparing for papers and exams;
choosing and getting along with mentors;
navigating departmental politics;
reviews of primary and secondary sources;
balancing one's personal and professional lives; and
managing time and financial resources.
The list will be moderated by Cheri Wilson, a Ph.D. candidate in Russian history at the University of Minnesota. To subscribe, please send the following command
subscribe awssgrad-l (first name) (last name) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once your subscription request has been received, you will be sent a
questionnaire to complete. Upon completion of the questionnaire, you will be subscribed to the listserv.
Please e-mail Cheri Wilson if you have any further questions.
