SEELECTS or 'Slavic and East-European lectures' is a series of lectures, interviews and discussion panels, organized by the Research Group 'Slavonic and East European Studies'. This series is a forum for national and international scholars and public figures. All presentations cover East and Southeast Europe, but are not restricted to Slavic topics alone. The talks are rather broad and exploratory, than all too narrow or specific. Every presentation will be followed by an informal reception.
