RESEARCH PROJECTS

 

GENDER STUDIES IN THE BLACK SEA AND BEYOND

The project is based on the recognition that a gendered intersectional lens is central not marginal to a deeper analysis and understanding of political mobilizations, social developments and cultural expressions in the Black Sea. A gendered lens also allows for a comparative perspective and collaboration with other regional centers and initiatives at INTERNATIONAL BLACK SEA
COASTLINE COUNTRIES SCIENTIFIC ASSEMBLY. The project involves panel discussions, lectures, and book talks as well as relevant research.

LANDS AND PEOPLES

The project seeks to provide a forum for a deeper understanding of the region and its peoples

DISPLACEMENT

Displacement is formative of power relations of inclusion and exclusion. This research initiative pushes at the seams of the humanities, social sciences, and the natural and physical sciences by exploring long-term drivers of displacement. The wager here is that focused interdisciplinary conversation about historical, ecological, and subjective dimensions of displacement as an enduring and global phenomenon, can lay the seeds for imagining alternative futures.

ARTS AND SOCIAL CHANGE

The arts have played a pivotal role in shaping and transforming Black Sea and Coastline countries' societies, past and present. 

Scholarship Project

Scholarships provided for outstanding students who will also assist on research topics the project supervisers.
