Berkeley Summer Slavic Colloquium Series on Zoom

Berkeley will be hosting a summer Zoom colloquium series, to be hosted by Professor Luba Golburt. Several graduate alumni of the Berkeley Slavic department will present their current research. The talks will take place on Mondays at noon (Pacific Daylight Time) to make it possible for those on the East Coast and in Europe to join us. The lectures will be followed by a Q&A discussion.


Berkeley alumni will automatically receive a zoom invitation for each event.  Anyone else is welcome to "attend."  If you would like to register and be sent a zoom link for all the talks, please make this request in an email to me  The schedule is below.
best wishes to all!
