The Works in Progress Series

Home / The Works in Progress Series

 

The Works-in-Progress (W-i-P) series is an ongoing academic discussion series based in Tbilisi, Georgia, that takes place at the International School of Economics (ISET) building (16 Zandukeli Street). It is co-organized by the Caucasus Research Resource Centers (CRRC), the American Councils for International Education: ACTR/ACCELS, and the American Research Institute of the South Caucasus (ARISC). All of the talks are free and open to the public, and are in English unless otherwise announced. The purpose of the W-i-P series is to provide support and productive criticism to those researching and developing academic projects pertaining the Caucasus region. The project began in January 2010, and is currently in its 4th year.

Regular announcements of upcoming Works-in-Progres talks can be found by joining the W-i-P open group on
