SOAS Vostok Society: Research Group on Central Asia and the Caucasus
Vostok (lit. East in Russian) The mission of this society is to establish a network among current and former students at SOAS doing research and working on Central Asia, the Caucasus and other parts of Asia within the Russian Federation. We will be organising throughout the year different events such as a monthly lunchtime seminar with research students and guest speakers, film screenings, roundtables and a postgraduate workshop at the end of the year.
Our goal is to create a student-led forum in London where the academic community and general public can discuss in an informal setting new research and debates around the culture, history and politics of this part of the world.
