Date: 
Thursday, April 28, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Until the late 1980s, Soviet leaders after World War II regarded Hungary and other East-Central European countries as an extension of their own country’s frontiers. Threats to the security of an East European Communist regime, whether external or internal, were seen as threats to Soviet security as well. Talk will discuss whether under President Putin Russia is returning to the same paradigm?

The Roma Through History, Music, and Film

Europe’s largest minority, commonly known in English as “Gypsies,” more properly referred to as Roma, Sinti or Gitano, have been enslaved, hunted down, imprisoned, and generally reviled; at the same time, they have fascinated members of the majority, and writers, artists, and composers have exploited the exotic flavoring they find in the image of “Gypsiness.” Roma musicians are also indispensable to folk and popular music practices around the European continent.

Historical Central Eurasia

A land of nomads and industrialists, communists and capitalists, media moguls and pirates all at the same time, Central Eurasia has been a testing ground-and battleground-for some of society’s greatest experiments in property: what can (or should) be owned, who can own it, and what they can do with it. This course explores the development of conceptions of property and property rights in Central Eurasia, from the establishment of rights over hunting and grazing grounds to fights over copyright and patents.
