Carolina Seminar: What Time is the Global East?
May 5 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Elena Trubina is a professor of social theory and philosophy at the Ural Federal University in Yekaterinburg, Russia, where she also directs the Center for Global Urbanism. Her book Gorod v teorii [City in Theory] took issue with the Eurocentrism of urban theories and has become widely read and used in universities across the post-socialist space. Her research focuses on social and urban theory, the relationship between urban space, politics, memory and subjectivity. She is the recipient of several prestigious fellowships, including those from the Fulbright Program, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Carnegie Foundation, among others. She is teaching a course on “Globalized and Deglobalized Russia” in the Global Studies Curriculum this spring.
The Carolina Seminar: Russia and Its Empires, East and West is co-sponsored by the Carolina Seminar Program, the UNC Department of History, and the Center for Slavic, Eurasian and East European Studies. Please note that the participants will give an overview of their projects, but will not read a formal paper. Instead, papers or book chapters will be circulated ahead of time to those who are interested in attending and participating in the discussion. Please contact Dr. Eren Tasar for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
