Our aim is to contribute to and stimulate an international discussion among students of Soviet history, to create connections between scholars, and to find new research methods and approaches to the study of Soviet history. The conference offers young scholars from Russia and abroad a chance to discuss different aspects of Soviet everyday life, politics, economy, and the arts. Conference participants will have an opportunity to discuss their papers with the faculty of European University at Saint-Petersburg and other academic institutions. Apart from panel discussions, keynote presentations by prominent scholars working on Soviet history will be organized.
