COMPLAINTS: Cultures of Grievance in Eastern Europe and Eurasia March 8-9, 2013, Princeton University
Complaints are one way that the powerless and the dispossessed communicate their disagreement, dissatisfaction, and resentment to the powerful and the dominant.  As a legal genre, a communication tool, and a narrative structure, complaints have a long history in Eastern Europe and Eurasia, from the peasants’ petitions to the Russian tsar to the dissidents’ letters to the party committees and from the complaint books in Soviet grocery stores to denunciation reports to the secret police. This conference plans to examine the genre of complaints in the public culture of Eastern Europe and Eurasia.
In his After the Wall: East Meets West in the New Berlin, John Borneman reminded us that legal petitions in East Germany were in fact a form of legal privilege…

CREEES Seminar: “Between the Ethnos and the 'Soviet People': Interethnic Marriagein Soviet Central Asia” November 30 (Fri) - 12:00pm Adrienne Edgar Associate Professor of History, UC Santa Barbara Encina Hall West, room 208 Searchable campus map: Online RSVP required by 4 pm, 11/28: Open to the public / Lunch will be served The Soviet regime welcomed inter-ethnic marriage as a concrete manifestation of the “friendship of peoples,” and Soviet social scientists spared no effort to show that such marriages were increasing from year to year.

The National Library of Poland to upload its 1.3 million bibliographic records to Worldcat!

Dear Readers,

Please see this important announcement here. Please forgive me for not posting any new posts lately as I have been busy working on my various research projects that require attention and time. Besides my full time work, my life will be incomplete without these constant research projects.

It is important for us to know that Biblioteka Narodowa of Poland is an important partner of Slavic Studies Librarians. There are several helpful tools along with a great digital library of Poland hosted on its site.
