Welcome to Q*ASEEES!

Society for the Promotion of LGBTQ Slavic, East European, & Eurasian Studies

About Us

Q*ASEEES was created to promote all forms of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) studies in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian societies, including but not limited to history, literary and cultural studies, social sciences, and interdisciplinary studies. We hope to support collaborative work between different disciplines with an interest in our regions. We want to serve as a voice for LGBTQ studies in Central & Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. We will also promote professional mentoring for early-career scholars who identify as LGBTQ, and work with the Association for Diversity in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ADSEEES) and the Association for Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS) toward this goal.
