The Summer History Workshop aims to provide a platform where foreign and Russian, postgraduate and senior scholars involved in the study of twentieth-century Russian history can present work in progress and receive feedback from colleagues in an informal setting. Workshop sessions are scheduled for the late afternoon in order to allow visiting scholars to combine attendance with their work at the archives. The first two days are devoted to research-papers and discussion, the third day of the workshop will feature special presentations by archivists and librarians. The languages of the workshop are Russian and English.
Those interested in participating and presenting their work are invited to send a CV and a short abstract of their presentation (max. 200 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 May 2005. Graduate students and young scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.
