Starting in the fall of 2019, PhD students in the RSW community will be able to participate in a monthly writing group. The goal is for students receive diverse and constructive feedback on their work from their peers and scholars, while also sharing best practices and supporting each other as members of a Russianist cohort at IU. The Кружок will be moderated by the incoming RSW Post-doctoral Fellow. Visiting RSW scholars are encouraged to attend and participate if they are at IU during a Kruzhok meeting. Student participants will receive priority on RSW conference and research travel grants.
