In May 2021, PoSoCoMeS launched a new monthly series of online seminars: the first Monday of each month at 5.30 pm Central European Time, using this Zoom link. The next regular session will take place on 4 October, when Bin Xu (Emory University) will present his recent book Chairman Mao's Children: Generation and the Politics of Memory in China. The session on 1 November will be devoted to Eunice Blavascunas's Foresters, Borders, and Bark Beetles: The Future of Europe's Last Primeval Forest.

Video recordings of past seminars are made available below, usually within 24h after each session. In August 2020, before the series started, we organized a Russian-language webinar titled Oral history and collective memory in the post-Soviet space, which you can also find below.

The seminars are organised by Anastasia Felcher (Budapest), Maria Matskevich (Saint Petersburg), and Anna Topolska (Poznań). If you would like to present your ongoing research or a published book in the series, please e-mail posocomes at We are especially interested in organising English-language discussions of important books published in other languages.
