UK Baltic Study Group
Site updated: 18 June 2009
Welcome to the UK Baltic Study Group.
'The UK Baltic Study Group is an informal and interdisciplinary forum,
meeting annually, to foster greater discussion, collaborative research,
interaction with policy practitioners and other non-academic partners and –
potentially – joint activities in teaching. Membership of the group is open
to UK academics and postgraduates from any discipline with an interest in
the Baltic who are conducting research relevant to the area. Meetings will
rotate annually between institutions, and will consist of invited papers
(maximum three) and discussion, followed by an annual meeting and a dinner.
The costs of hosting each meeting will be met partly by the host
institution, and partly from membership fees. Attendees will be responsible
for the costs of travel, accommodation and evening meal. The annual
membership fee for both academics and postgraduates is ten pounds'
This statement of aims was adopted during the inaugural meeting of the Group
at the University of Glasgow on 28 June 2005. Speakers on this occasion were
Professor John Hiden, who spoke on the tasks of a Baltic Study Group, and Mr
Richard Samuel, who talked about the reestablishment of a British diplomatic
presence in Latvia following the 1991 restoration of independence. The next
meeting is scheduled to take place at the School of Slavonic and East
European Studies, University College London in June 2006.
