ASEEES Webinars

Working with our committees, members and other organizations, ASEEES offers webinars throughout the year to help members engage in professional development by providing information on research methodologies and sources, teaching methods and resources, publishing, funding, and careers in and outside academia.

2018 Webinar Series

We are excited to announce the launch of professional development webinars offered by the Herder Institute for Historical Research on East-Central Europe. Are you a scholar or academic professional curious about European higher education and research? Discover opportunities to enhance your career mobility and research. This series is sponsored by ASEEES, EUSA, the University of Pittsburgh's Center for Russian and East European Studies and the ESC.

Speaker's bio: Peter Haslinger, who will present the first three webinars in the series, is full professor for the history of East Central Europa at Justus-Liebig-University Giessen and director of the Herder-Institute in Marburg, a non-university institute in the realm of the Leibniz Association that specializes in the history, art history and digital humanities of East Central Europe. He is also Principal Investigator at the Giessen Center for Eastern European Studies, the International Center for the Study of Culture and the Center for Media and Interactivity, all located at Giessen University. Moreover, he functions as a spokesperson for the Herder-Institute Research Academy which aims to bridge the gap between scholarship in Eastern European Studies and the development of research infrastructures. His scholarly interest focuses on the history of the Habsburg Monarchy and successor states (19th and 20th centuries), he has published widely on Hungarian, Czech and Slovak history as well as on questions of nation, region and cultural diversity, on cartography and questions of security. He is also is the spokesperson of the project group that enhances the visibility of Eastern European Studies across disciplines within the Leibniz Association.
