Disentangling Eurasia: Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and their Successors

Third Tallinn Summer School in Soviet History & Culture, July, 2023

I attended the Third Tallinn Summer School in Soviet History & Culture  where the Scholars of Soviet and post-Soviet history gathered for a week-long programme  in attempt to reassess and critically examine the field at a time of great upheaval in the region. Through keynotes, workshops, and a stimulating cultural program, participants gathered questions about the conventional approach to Soviet multinationality and disentangle the various trajectories of the nations and groups belonging to the erstwhile Soviet realm.

Visual Dichotomies symposium

University  of Arts, London, 2024

How do we understand the dynamic between practice/ing research and theory, and research in or as practice? Are there clear overlaps, or does the matter remain ambiguous? We wish to untangle various perspectives around research in the arts—both practice as research and theory as practice—and uncover perspectives on how research in the visual arts works in practice through readings, discussion and collaboration.
