It is focused primarily on East Slavic (Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian) regions, though West and South Slavic areas will also be considered. Among the resources, which H-EarlySlavic offers, you can find: CfPs, Tables of Content of recent journal issues, a list of electronic libraries and much more.

Ukraine Heritage Crisis Specialist Wanted

Passing along job posting; please respond directly to the World Monuments Fund below ~ Talia Zajac


Dear colleagues,

My organization (World Monuments Fund) is currently seeking a Ukraine Heritage Crisis Specialist (12-month position), to support our efforts to respond to the impact of the conflict in Ukraine on the country's cultural heritage sector.

ESSA statement on Ukraine

The Early Slavic Studies Association condemns Russia's attack on Ukraine. We are appalled at the historical distortions that Russia has used to justify its invasion, and we stand beside our colleagues, family, friends, and fellow citizens in Ukraine, as well as Russian colleagues opposing this violation of international law. The damage done, in loss of lives and loss of trust across countries of the Slavic world, will profoundly impact our colleagues, and we are eager to hear from members about how we can support anyone who may be affected by the ongoing crisis.
