Lecture Series 2020: Post-Socialist Presents: Culture and Society in Russia, Poland and Ukraine: MEMORY

The Slavonic Studies Section has organised a series of public events focusing on aspects of contemporary culture and society across Poland, Russia and Ukraine during the academic year 2019-20. Each event features two speakers, whose talks will be in dialogue with one another, followed by public discussion.

On Thursday 27 February 2020 at 17.30 in the Latimer Room, Clare College the Lecture Series will explore 'Memory'. Maria Stepanova and Irina Sandomirskaja will explore issues of memory, post-memory and affect in contemporary post-Socialist spaces. Irina Sandomirskaja's scholarship in a project on contemporary memorial practice, affect and heritage, will be in dialogue with Maria Stepanova's reflections on her own writing in her prize-winning novel, Памяти памяти (In Memory of Memory).

Students, colleagues, and interested members of the public, are all welcome. A wine reception will follow. 

Keep in touch
