ZOiS Research Colloquium

As of the 2018 summer semester, the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS), in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, is opening invitations to a new multidisciplinary research colloquium. The colloquium is to serve as a discussion forum for work in progress by PhD candidates, postdocs, and established researchers whose work in the social sciences focuses on Eastern Europe. With this colloquium, the aim is to establish a permanent meeting point in the Berlin-Brandenburg area for those engaged in research on Eastern Europe. The research colloquium will take place at ZOiS every second Wednesday in the month during the semester. If you wish to participate, please register with Lejly Agamuradova (lejly.agamuradova(at)zois-berlin(dot)de).
