UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES)


Study of Central Europe Seminar Series

Our approach to the region is multi-disciplinary, comprising history, languages and literature, culture, politics and economics.

We seek to promote research and teaching on the history, languages, literature, political culture, music, arts and society of those lands once part of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from the Middle Ages to the present, as well as on German-speaking Europe and the Baltic.

These countries (in their present borders) include Austria, Belarus, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine.
