TAMEW Presentes Abigail Bratcher & Julia Mead (5/20)

Dear Colleagues,

 

Please join the Transnational Approaches to Modern Europe Wednesday, May 20 from 4:00-5:30pm for our first ever "Early Student Roundtable." We are lucky have two early PhD Students in the History Department who will provide brief presentations on their work followed by an open discussion among workshop participants.

 

Julia Mead, PhD Student, Department of History, will present her work, "Fossil Socialism: Thoughts on masculine miners, coal-powered consumerism, and the mineral basis of Czechoslovak state socialism" and Abigail Bratcher, PhD Student, Department of History will present her work, "Knowing the Kazakh Steppe: How Soil Scientists and Peasants Created Knowledge of the Steppe Biosphere during the Cold War."

 

The presentations will be held during the meeting and there is no pre-circulated paper.

Our meeting will be held over Zoom. You can access the meeting with the link below, a full meeting invitation can be found at the end of this message. Should you be prompted for a password, enter: HopeFrankl
