The way Russia has employed historical references to justify the war against Ukraine has brought conceptions of history once more into the focus of the general public. With these narratives, the Russian state is also addressing Russian speakers beyond its own borders. Still, we know very little about the receiving side of memory politics. In this podcast episode, Félix Krawatzek and Hakob Matevosyan introduce their new research project, which takes a look at how memory is transmitted from one generation to the next in Russian speaking communities abroad. Moving Russia(ns): Intergenerational Transmission of Memories Abroad and at Home, or MoveMeRU for short, is a five year research project funded by the European Research Council under the Horizon Europe framework programme.
Roundtable Osteuropa is a podcast by the Centre for East European and International Studies. Scholars of ZOiS and their guests discuss their research of Eastern Europe. We consider events in politics and society, while also trying to shed light on lesser-known issues – with insights from sociology, political science, geography, social anthropology, literary studies and theology.
