Recent Past and Near Future

Glasgow, UK 

The fact that I’ve let this blog go even under one post per month can be a huge disappointment – or a great relief – for my few followers. I have now a few related announcements to make in order to explain my past and future absence from this platform. The absence will be interrupted by wordy posts, however. Because I can’t keep my promises.

– Collaboration with The Hidden Transcript (student-run online magazine)

For forthcoming articles, refer to the page

– Conferences, roundtables, workshops in the next 2 months

  • Dublin, DCU – Irish Association for Russian, Central and East European Studies (IARCEES) Conference

    • presentation of a paper on Pipelines and Hegemony in the Caspian Region (a neo-Gramscian appraisal)
  • London, UCL – School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) and Centre for East European Language-Based Area Studies (CEELBAS) Roundtable on “Energy and Institutions”
    • presentation on Pipeline politics and Energy Security in the Caspian (the case of Kurmangazy)
  • Cambridge, UK – British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) and International Council for Central and East European Studies (ICCEES) Congress
    • panelist and discussant for panel 3.4 “EU Energy Security since 2004: Import Dependency and Russian Gas Supplies for an Expanding Union”

A couple of book reviews will also be coming along.
