Tamar Khutsishvili, Friedrich Schiller University Jena

In her PhD, Tamar Khutsishvili examines land use strategies in the village of Pshatavan (Armavir Province, Armenia). The main focus lies on two generations, the first with experience of Soviet life and the second born or raised after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. In her talk, Khutsishvili will tease out the phenomenon of nostalgia as manifested in the narratives of the second generation within the framework of post-memory. In so doing, she seeks to understand the roots of the second generation’s collective memory and its influence on everyday life.

ZOiS Research Colloquium

As of the winter semester 2021/2022, the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS), in cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and the Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), 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 online every second Wednesday at 6pm in the months during the semester. We will send the access data shortly before the beginning of each session.

If you wish to participate, please register with Anja Krüger (events(at)zois-berlin(dot)de).
