Aims of the Network

TREEC's main aims and objectives are:

  • To examine how understandings of Russian and East European cultures are communicated and translated across disciplinary, linguistic and academic-end user boundaries.
  • To consider the potential for Area Studies to facilitate innovative means of knowledge exchange given its multidisciplinary basis, training and practices both between disciplines as well as across academic-end user boundaries and cultural divides.
  • To develop and trial a range of dissemination techniques and practices drawing from expertise within both academic and non-academic contexts.
  • To encourage the involvement of end user communities (school children, general public, local / national government representatives, non-governmental organisations) at all stages of the initiative.
