Reserve Your Seat


The Harriman Institute invites you to register for the workshop “Industrious Nations: Reconsidering Nationality and Economy” on October 28-29, 2022 at Princeton University.

Marking the centennial of the Soviet Union’s founding in December 1922, this two-day workshop will explore the relationship between national identity and the economy in the Soviet Union. It will bring together scholars whose research engages with these two fields and serve as a platform to exchange ideas on how to combine both issues in a meaningful way. Pre-circulated papers from invited participants will form the basis of discussion. Professor Artemy Kalinovsky will address the workshop in a keynote lecture. In addition, a roundtable discussion of leading scholars in these fields will respond to the panels and conclude the workshop.

Attendance to the workshop will be open to the public with registration. The four paper panels of this conference will be in-person only, while the keynote lecture and the roundtable discussion will be offered in a hybrid format, both in-person and over Zoom. In order to attend, please register through the Registration page. More information, including the schedule, speaker bios and list of sponsors, can be found on the workshop website:
