Podcast Series Announcement: “Eastern Europe’s Minorities in a Century of Change”

To mark the Institute for Historical Research’s centenary, the BASEES Study Group for Minority History is proud to present ‘Eastern Europe’s Minorities in a Century of Change’, a podcast series on the history of minorities and minority experiences in twentieth-century Central and Eastern Europe. While often presented as simply long-suffering victims of historic persecution, this series investigates the historical roles such groups played in this vast and complex region spanning the Baltics to the Eastern Mediterranean and the Rhine to the Ural Mountains.

Bringing together a range of interviews with internationally recognised experts, it considers how the momentous changes that befell the region in this period impacted upon the lives of millions, such as the creation of new countries on the ruins of Europe’s former empires.

Guests include Orlando Figes (Birkbeck), Molly Greene (Princeton University), Mark Levene (University of Southampton), Cathie Carmichael (University of East Anglia), Andrii Portnov (European University Viadrina), Matthew Frank (University of Leeds), Raul Carstocea (Maynooth University), and Tomasz Kamusella (University of St Andrew).

Each episode will be released weekly from early October and will be made available for free via a range of online platforms including the official IHR and BASEES websites.
