About the Workshop

The Transnational Approaches to Modern Europe workshop (formerly Modern Europe and Russian Studies workshop) meets every other Wednesday throughout the school year. The workshop focuses on the concepts and methods of transnational/comparative history. We read and discuss drafts of dissertation chapters by U Chicago students, as well as papers by outside scholars in relevant fields.

In 2013-2014 we will meet in the John Hope Franklin Room of the Social Sciences building (224) from 5:00-6:30. Papers will be pre-circulated several days before the workshop on Chalk. If you have questions or concerns about the workshop, please feel free to contact Emily Marker (emarker@uchicago.edu) or Katya Motyl (kmotyl@uchicago.edu), co-coordinators for 2013-2014.
