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, inter-disciplinary 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.
