On February 17, 2017 the Seminary Co-op Bookstore and the Center for East European and Russian/Eurasian Studies held the second event in CEERES of Voices, an author-centered series of readings and conversations on books from or about Central and Eastern Europe, Russia, Central Eurasia, and the Caucasus. The series continued with a discussion of Violence As A Generative Force: Identity, Nationalism, and Memory in a Balkan Community with Max Bergholz and Victor Friedman.
Before the main discussion Max Bergholz and Victor Friedman sat down for a more informal chat about Violence As A Generative Force, the complications in doing research for the book, and writing more broadly. You can see their conversation here:
CEERES of Voices will continue in Spring 2017. The next event will take place on Monday, April 10 at 6:00 pm at the Seminary Co-op Bookstore (5751 S. Woodlawn). Martin Vopěnka will discuss his novel The Fifth Dimension with Esther Peters. For more information on the series you can the Seminary Co-op website.
