The Centre for Slavic and Eastern European Studies at the University of Oslo promotes in-depth knowledge of Russia and the post-Soviet states, Central Europe, and the Balkans.
The Centre’s academic staff specialises in languages, literature, culture, history, politics, and society in this part of the world. The Centre was established in 2019 and serves as a hub for scholars in the field, and a platform for promoting knowledge to the public.
The Centre regularly hosts seminars where we invite staff researchers, as well as researchers from other institutions, to lecture on topics of current interest. We welcome anyone interested to participate.
