Russian History Kruzhok

For nearly twenty years, the Russian History kruzhok (circle) has served the Berkeley faculty and several generations of graduate students. The kruzhok was established in 1994 to provide a forum for students in the dissertation-writing stage to present their work in progress. Over the years, the kruzhok has benefited graduate students in all stages and in countless ways: in addition to receiving feedback on dissertation chapters, students have held mock job interviews, discussed fellowship proposals, and practiced their first conference presentations. Berkeley boasts a strong tradition of scholarship in Imperial Russian and Soviet history; the graduate program is one of the largest and best in the country; and the kruzhok has played an important role in preserving and fostering this reputation.

The Russian History kruzhok is grateful for its funding received from the Townsend Center for the Humanities and the Institute of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies.

Primary and Secondary Coordinators: Yana Skorobogatova and Mirjam Voerkelius.
