Support for Central European University. Directors of Regional Centers and CEERES Faculty speak out

 

PROTEST LETTER IN SUPPORT OF CEU

April 24, 2017

 

Dear European Parliament, European Commission and Government of Hungary:

 

We write to you as the Directors of Centers for East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies across the United States, in Germany and in the United Kingdom.  As scholars and experts on the region, we forcefully protest the recent amendments to the Hungarian National Higher Education Act that pose an existential threat to the Central European University in Budapest. These actions threaten academic freedom across the region and in Europe as a whole.

Welcome to the Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies

The University of Chicago has been providing instruction in disciplines of the CEERES region continuously since 1903, when courses in Russian language and area studies first began. The center now known as CEERES has been in existence since 1965, and it continues to coordinate instruction and facilitate research about Russia/Eurasia and Eastern/Central Europe, including the Baltic States, Balkans, Caucasus, and Central Asia.

The New School - University In Exile Consortium

The New School invites you to attend the launch of the New University in Exile Consortium - Thursday, September 6 2018

We are living at a time when scholars around the world are under attack, just as when the original University in Exile was established in 1933 to save academic victims of Nazism during World War II. In our own day, universities have once again been shuttered or destroyed; many scholars have been purged from their faculty positions; others seek safety from conflicts that have riven their countries.

Americans in Revolutionary Russia is focused on bringing back into print the observations and experiences of Americans who were witnesses to war and revolution in Russia between 1914 and 1921. There were numerous accounts by Americans from a variety of perspectives. These men and women offer a rich perspective on the tumultuous events that gripped Russia during this time.
