CBEES organises seminars, conferences and workshops throughout the year. Every other Monday there is a higher seminar in research relevant to our field, and there is also a CBEES Annual Conference that attracts participants from multiple research fields, higher education institutions and countries.

CBEES Annual Conference 2021 - With and After Empire: Enduring Pasts Across the Local and the Global

Welcome to the 7th Annual Conference of the Centre for Baltic and East European Studies (CBEES). Södertörn University, Stockholm, Sweden. The event will be conducted online.

Advanced seminars:

CBEES Advanced Seminars are the core of CBEES’ activities. Academic seminars are sometimes referred to as the laboratory of the humanities and social sciences, and at CBEES we make every effort to organise our seminars as intriguing, thought provoking research forums.

CBEES offers a multidisciplinary and international research environment. Papers at the Advanced Seminars reflect a wide range of contemporary research on the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe. The presented text is distributed beforehand. At each seminar, the presenter responds to comments provided by a designated discussant, after which all participants are welcome to join the discussion. Conversation continues at the post seminar.
