Celebrating Three Decades

The Cambridge Committee for Russian and East European Studies (CamCREES) was founded in 1987 to promote and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration in the study of Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia at the University of Cambridge. It also represents to outside bodies the interests of Russian and East European Studies at the University.

The members of CamCREES work across departments, colleges and faculties at Cambridge to advance knowledge about the diverse cultures, economies, and societies of the region. During the academic year, CamCREES organises and hosts a series of evening seminars and other special events with leading scholars, artists, and practitioners, which are open to the general public. Please see our event page for more information.

Below are our upcoming events:
