PoSoCoMeS organises a rich programme of events. These fall into several categories:

  • our monthly online seminar, usually on the first Monday of each month at 5.30 pm, where we discuss recent books and ongoing research in our field. E-mail us if you would like to present your work in that series.

  • occasional one-off events. E-mail us if you have an idea for an online or offline event that you would like to organise under the auspices of PoSoCoMeS.

  • events at, and before or after, the annual MSA conference: plenary sessions, regular panels and in-conference business meetings, including joint events with other MSA working and regional groups. We also usually organise public pre-conference events that are open to all even without MSA membership or conference registration. Our programme for the MSA Warsaw conference (2021) took place entirely online, and our programme in Seoul (2022) will probably be a mix of online and offline events.

  • our own conferences. The first PoSoCoMeS conference – the biggest memory studies conference ever put together in Eastern Europe – was co-organised with the Institute of Oral History of Moldova and took place over two weeks in September-October 2020 in an online format. The next conference will take place in Tallinn in September 2023 and will be hosted by the teams of two research projects based at Tallinn University and the University of Tartu.

  • our bi-weekly business meetings, every other Friday at 9 pm CET, where we discuss our ongoing activities and plans. These meetings are open to all. E-mail us to join.

For your convenience, all forthcoming events are listed in the calendar.
