The Black Sea Networks Initiative, Schedule of Events
Apr 21 – Sep 1 all-day

A yearlong Black Sea Event Series, co-hosted by Columbia and Yale, fostering creative exchange among the project’s team and advisory board, scholars at Columbia across divisions, and outside experts, artists, and activists.

An interdisciplinary symposium on Crimea will be held at Cambridge University on April 21, 2017, co-sponsored by the Ukrainian Studies Endowment Fund.

A two-day conference at Columbia in September 2017, generating a special issue of the journal Southeast European and Black Sea Studies.

A team-taught Global Core course, “Black Sea Cultural Capitals,” under the umbrella of the new Humanities project “Cities of Knowledge: Reading the Global Metropolis.” The course will include seven modules: six focused on a single city (Istanbul, Plovdiv, Belgrade, Constanta, Odessa, and Tbilisi), and one on the Crimean peninsula. The course will use technologies currently employed exclusively for language acquisition through the Mellon-sponsored Columbia-Cornell-Yale shared course initiative, and create an open-access digital library for Black Sea Studies that will support a future multi-media publication.

A summit at Columbia Global Centers | Paris that will present initiative results to partners in the Black Sea region and to representatives of Global Centers with potential stakes in the project (Istanbul, Paris, Amman, Beijing), and open lines for further collaboration and broader adoption of the Black Sea model.
