"The center’s mission is to deepen our knowledge of this vast region stretching from Kamchatka to Warsaw that encompasses Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and the former Soviet Union. We bring together scholars from all disciplines to study this region and its population."
This lecture was founded in 1998 to honor Professor of History and Political Science Alexander Dallin, a founder of Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies at Stanford and the CREEES director from 1985-89 and 1992-94.
CREEES and UC Berkeley's Institute of Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies co-sponsor an annual joint conference. The first conference was held in Berkeley in 1977, and it has alternated campuses each year since.
