Our Mission Statement

The Association for Diversity in Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies (ADSEEES) is dedicated to better connecting and expanding the network of underrepresented minority students, scholars, and professionals working in the field. ADSEEES is committed to improving general understanding of the unique experiences of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ community who study, teach, and/or conduct research in the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. ADSEEES also seeks to serve as a platform for academic discussions of minoritarian cultures in the region both historically and in the present day.
