As part of its series of field-building initiatives, and with generous support provided by the U.S. Department of State Title VIII Program, the SSRC Eurasia Program has organized a number of Dissertation Development Workshops. These three-day events bring 8–10 graduate students engaged in the study of the region together with a number of senior resource faculty for intensive discussions of the individual scholars’ work and larger thematic issues. In addition to providing younger scholars with substantive, interdisciplinary feedback, these workshops serve to foster close working relationships and the formation of enduring scholarly networks. Applications are solicited for these workshops on a periodic basis; please check this site frequently for updates.
