'Re-defining ‘Subculture’: A new lens for understanding hybrid cultural identities. Theoretical approaches and practical cases, 20th Century East-Central Europe'
A two-day exploratory workshop that will examine an experimental definition of 'Subcultures' in East-Central Europe.
'Of Renaissance Men and Robots: The Embedded Identities of the Soviet Scientist in the 1950s and 1960s.'
This workshop will bring together members of the Comparative Constitutions Project to understand the interrelationship between the constitutional entrenchment of rights and acts of repression, with case studies from post-Arab Spring states and Eastern Europe.
This interdisciplinary study explores the persistent differences between Russian and Western leaders about most Western-led military campaigns and about Russia's own use of force in the CIS region. What does this tell us about emerging norms on the use of force in humanitarian crises?
The key focus of the workshop is to combine and complement recent advances in empirical and theoretical knowledge of protest events in different regions.
