Founded in 1995, the Society of Historians of Eastern European, Eurasian, and Russian Art and Architecture (SHERA) brings together scholars specializing in the art and architecture of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, from ancient times to the present day. H-SHERA, the H-Net network, aims to serve as a vibrant source of information and exchange, and welcomes anyone interested in our growing field to create a sense of community for scholars around the world.

You may be wondering what this new H-SHERA platform is and how you can post a message to share with the group.
H-SHERA is both a communication platform (like a listserv) and a permanent public archive of our communications and resources (like a website) where you can find important messages from SHERA and communicate with the whole group.
To post a message to the list:
Dear Members of SHERA,
Below please find a compiled listing of all panels and roundtables related to art, architecture, design, cinema, historiography of art, cultural policy, museums, museology, urbanism, material culture, and other themes of interest to our members. The results are organized chronologically.
