We are seeking participants for an AJS panel on Jews in Contemporary Russia and Ukraine or Contemporary Russian and Ukrainian Jews in developed democracies. Papers that focus on relations between the two collectives are particularly welcome. Relationships among national movements (e.g. Jewish and Ukrainian , or Jewish and Tatar,etc.) in the former Soviet Republics is another venue we want to explore.
