Department of East European Studies

The Department of East European Studies of the Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague (DEES) deals with research of the area of Eastern Europe with special focus on Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic States, which are studied both separately and in regional and international context. Regarding study programmes, the Department offers BA and MA programmes in Russian language and literature and in East European studies and participates in realization of doctoral programmes in Slavonic philologies and Slavonic literatures.

The Department has established a wide net of international contacts (inter-university and inter-faculty agreements, ERASMUS agreements) and all studied areas (Russia, Ukraine, Baltic states) are currently provided for by international teaching and research agreements. Since 2005, the long-term profiling project of the Department has been the annual Conference of young Slavists, with the related publication series of reviewed collective monographs. Since 2014, the members of the Department have been participating decisively in the publication of the scientific journal Oriens Aliter, which aims to provide a platform for the most topical culturological and historic research about Central and Eastern Europe. Another key component of the Department’s activities is the popularization of East European culture and of our research by means of public lectures, debates, exhibitions, translations and cooperation with the media.
