Abstract

This core seminar aims to familiarize students of the educational trajectory “Eurasian (post-Soviet) area studies” with relevant approaches to and tools for academic and policy-oriented research in post-Soviet area studies. This will enable greater coherence of the educational process, set grounds for knowledge and understanding of the state of the art in the field, and help students to improve their professional communication skills. The seminar will focus on major scholarly discussions on key issues in post-Soviet area studies. It will also scrutinize various methodological paradigms and methods used for research on specific topics. This will be done both through regular seminar discussions based on extensive reading of seminal and innovative works in the field and through providing space for guest lectures by invited scholars who will present their work and provide feedback on students’ research ideas.
