ECMI is pleased to welcome Alina Jašina-Schäfer to the ECMI headquarters in Flensburg tomorrow.

On the 5th of December, Alina will give a presentation to the ECMI team on the following subject:

‘Spatial Belonging’: Meanings and Practices among Russian speakers in post-Soviet Estonia and Kazakhstan

Alina Jašina-Schäfer is a doctoral candidate at the Justus Liebig University Giessen, Germany. She holds an undergraduate degree in Central and East European Studies from the University of Glasgow and a Master’s degree in International Relations and European Studies from the Central European University Budapest. Her current dissertation project explores spatial belonging among Russian speakers in the borderland areas of Estonia and Kazakhstan. In particular, she looks comparatively at the ways the borderlands are produced by political actors and the ways people creatively challenge those hegemonic orders. Her main research interests include study of space, citizenship, as well as minority identification in the post-Soviet region.

We are looking forward to an inspiring morning at the ECMI!
