Annual Soyuz Symposium, 2015

Soyuz Research Network for Postsocialist Cultural Studies

The Soyuz Symposium, the Soyuz Research Network for Postcultural Studies annual conference designed to connect contemporary scholars working the fields of socialism and post-socialism, was hosted by the Ellison Center on the final weekend of February 2015. This event brought together more than two-dozen scholars from numerous disciplines (including sociology, history, anthropology, law, Slavic studies, and computer science) to share their work on the history, social politics, and lived experiences of socialism and post-socialism throughout the European, Central Asian, and East Asian regions. The theme of this year’s Symposium was “Shifting Territories: Historical Legacies and Social Change.” To read more about the conference, please click here.
