The Imre Kertész Kolleg at the 2018 ASEEES Convention in Boston

ASEEES Convention Theme: "Performance"

06. - 09. December 2018
Venue: Boston Marriott, Boston, MA
Organizer: ASEEES

The Association for Slavic, East European & Eurasian Studies’ 2018 Convention will be held in Boston, MA from 06 – 09 December under the topic “Performance”. The Imre Kertész Kolleg is very proud to be a part of this.

We are present with our directors Professor Joachim von Puttkamer and Dr Michal Kopecek, as well as our research associates Dr Juliane Tomann and Dr Jochen Böhler in various panels and discussion. A vast number of current and former fellows will also be at the ASEEES convention, so in a way this has become something like the Imre Kertész Kolleg’s alumni meeting and we couldn’t be happier about this. Below please find a selection of our schedule.
