UCL School of Slavonic & East European Studies (SSEES)
The UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) is the world’s leading institution for research and teaching on Russia, the Baltics, and Central, Eastern and South-East Europe. The School’s mission is to foster cross-disciplinary approaches to area studies, using expertise in our primary geographical region to generate knowledge and understanding of the broader world. Our work is organized into four interrelated programmes: Economics and Business; History; Languages and Culture; Politics and Sociology. With our spectacular library and award-winning building in the heart of London, at the centre of a vibrant network of national and international connections, SSEES provides a unique and dynamic environment where students acquire the expertise and skills that employers want, including an unparalleled range of languages.
SSEES also leads the inter-university Centre for East European Language Based Area Studies (CEELBAS), the International Masters in Economy, State, and Society (IMESS), funds the FRINGE Centre and runs the UCL Mellon Programme.
Remembering the past and migration abroad have both for centuries been fundamental to the identity of Poland. Today, they remain acutely significant - the first to politicians, the second to ordinary citizens. The workshop will be an opportunity to discuss research in progress which addresses both themes, as well as how they intertwine.
