IARCEES annual conference 4-6 May 2017


IARCEES final conference programme is now available.

The Wendy Bracewell Public Lecture is taking place on Thursday 4 May.

On the occasion of the centenary of the Russian Revolution, the Moore Institute is delighted to host the annual conference of the Irish Association for Russian, Central and East European Studies. Taking its inspiration from Lenin’s fateful journey to Petrograd one hundred years ago, the theme of this year’s conference is ‘journeys’. Papers deal with journeys into, out of and across the vast region that spans from Prague in central Europe to Vladivostok in eastern Asia. Participants offer perspectives from several different disciplines, including literature, history and politics. The conference will open with a keynote lecture by Prof. Wendy Bracewell of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London, entitled ‘Travellers, travellees, and travelling texts: Eastern Europe and the Republic of Letters’.  The event is funded by the President’s Office, the School of Humanities, the Discipline of History and Fáilte Ireland.

Location: Moore Institute, NUI Galway    
Time: 4 - 6 May 2017
