FRRESH (The Finnish-Russian Network in Russian and Eurasian Studies) Summer School in Orilampi, Finland, 21-25 August 2018

The FRRESH Summer School promotes interaction between doctoral students of Russian and East European Studies in Finnish universities, the European University at St. Petersburg (EUSP), and the Research Centre for East European Studies at Bremen University.

The third FRRESH Summer School focused on the topic of migration. The talks and discussions addressed current social and political phenomena and explored theoretical perspectives on the many contemporary and historical forms of displacement and migration.

In addition to lectures, the Summer School offered an opportunity for graduate students to present their on-going research. The work was conducted in workshops with specialists’ instruction. The workshops addressed thematic and methodological questions as well as discussed more practical matters, such as turning research into academic writing (peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, monographs, research proposals); preparing conference and seminar presentations; networking and building a career in global academia and beyond.

However, the Summer school wasn’t just lectures and workshops. Here, students enjoy the views of Repovesi national park.
