Event description: 

The Program on Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies of the Yale MacMillan Center hosts a Symposium on Yale Ph.D. Research in Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies. Generously sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation. For more information:
A Yale Ph.D. student symposium of the recipients from the last few years of the Russian Studies Dissertation and Pre-Dissertation Grants. This symposium fulfills an important intention of the Carnegie Corporation grant—encouraging graduate research and REEES community-building—and would have the added benefit of bringing graduate students together at a time when they are navigating the double crises of the pandemic and war in Ukraine, with the unprecedented negative impacts of both on their research and professional networks.
