CREEES 50th Anniversary

In October 1969, Stanford University formally designated the “Committee for Russian, East European and Communist Studies” as the Center for Russian and East European Studies, recognizing the leading research, graduate training and outreach, and institutional structures in the field that had emerged at Stanford over the preceding decades. This coming fall, the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a series of events.
