In May 2021, PoSoCoMeS launched a monthly series of online seminars: unless otherwise stated, they take place the first Monday of each month at 5.30 pm Central European Time, using this Zoom link. Detailed announcements of each event are usually posted at least a month in advance in the news section of our website.

The seminars are organised by Maria Matskevich (Saint Petersburg), and Alina Scheitza (Munich). If you would like to present your ongoing research or a published book in the series, please e-mail We are especially interested in organising English-language discussions of important books published in other languages.

All seminars take place in English. Video recordings of past seminars are made available below, usually within 24h after each session.


The second collection of videos features one-off online events. In November 2021 PoSoCoMeS held a roundtable in the Digital MSA series, titled Personal view: What does Memory Studies make of private archives, artist estates and diaries? In August 2020 we organised a Russian-language webinar titled Oral history and collective memory in the post-Soviet space.
