CFP: Doing Research in Post-Soviet Spaces (ASEEES, Boston, 2018)

Dear colleagues,

CFP: Doing Research in Post-Soviet Spaces

This roundtable session’s aim is to facilitate a discussion about the doing of research in post-soviet contexts. I am hoping to assemble a group of participants from diverse disciplines, in areas of study, and at various levels of experience. Of primary concern is addressing the question of how do we go about doing our research on our subject areas in our subject areas? Put otherwise, how can we best adapt our research skills and methodologies to fieldwork and data gathering in the region?
