This research seminar series provides a meeting place for social science, arts and humanities scholars focusing on the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe from the perspective of transnational and global change.
Agne Cepinskyte will give a talk entitled 'Nation and State in Political Discourse of the Weimar Republic and Post-Soviet Russia'. The discussant will be Nevena Nancheva (Kingston).
Agne Cepinskyte is a doctoral researcher at King's College, London. Her dissertation project is a comparison of post-Soviet Russia's and Weimar Germany's policies towards their ‘nationals' in the Baltic States: the Russian-speakers and the Baltic-Germans respectively. From the geopolitical perspective the Baltic States occupy a region that is strategically important for both the East and the West. The Baltic Germans after WWI and the Baltic Russian-speakers after the break-up of the Soviet Union faced a similar predicament, suggesting that it might be fruitful to compare Weimar Germany and post-Soviet Russia's geopolitical interests in the small ‘lands in-between'.
The series is organised by the Department of Criminology and Sociology and Dorich House Museum at Kingston University, London.
Convenors: Dr Egle Rindzeviciute (Sociology and Criminology) and Dr Fiona Fisher (Art and Design History).
