Rethinking Crossroads: Macedonia in Global Context

Saturday, March 31, 2007

The social scientific and humanistic research that emerged from and about Macedonia following its independence from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, as was the case for other countries in Southeastern Europe, tended to focus on two major themes: the processes that came to be collectively glossed by the term "transition", and the causes, consequences, and representations of the tensions, violence and wars that spread across the region during Yugoslavia's dissolution.

The Caucasus: Directions and Disciplines

Thursday, May 17, 2007 to Saturday, May 19, 2007

Since the break-up of the Soviet Union, the study of the Caucasus across a range of fields has grown and matured, even as it has faced serious challenges, from the heavy toll exacted by violent conflicts to the wages of corruption. Despite these challenges, the study of the Caucasus is garnering new attention which suggest that it is poised to inaugurate a new era in regional studies and a new series of contributions to traditional disciplines.

Critical Spaces of Hope: Locating Postsocialism and the Future in post-Yugoslav Anthropology

Friday, October 24, 2008 to Saturday, October 25, 2008

Critical Spaces of Hope: Locating Postsocialism and the Future in post-Yugoslav Anthropology aims to deprovincialize the anthropology of the former Yugoslavia by putting it in long overdue conversation with the study of postsocialism. It does so by bringing together an international group of junior anthropologists engaged in ongoing post-Yugoslav field research and senior anthropologists known for their work on postsocialist transformation.

Albanian Linguistics Workshop

Listen to recorded lectures from this conference here.


The Albanian Linguistics Workshop was the inspiration of Dr. Kelly Maynard, a visiting lecturer in the Department of Slavic Languages & Literatures who taught Structure of Albanian during winter quarter. 2009. She saw this as an opportunity to introduce what might be the next generation of Albanian linguists to some established scholars in the field.


New Histories of Modern Art: The East European Avant-Gardes

Thursday, February 4, 2010 to Saturday, February 6, 2010

In light of recent scholarship and new critical methodologies that have invigorated the study of modern and contemporary art from Eastern Europe, the organizers think it timely to reconsider both the classical avant-garde period and the subsequent neo-avant-gardes.
