Program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies

Princeton Conjunction

Organized by REEES, Princeton Conjunction is an interdisciplinary and international conference that brings together 25 – 30 scholars from around the world aimed at determining new directions in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies. 

The conference program committee issues an open call for papers each year; participants are selected in early February, and the conference is typically held the second weekend of May.
