CTRL+S is the annual almanac of EHU cultural heritage programs. Its name “CTRL+S” – the computer command “save” – ​​is an attempt to break out of semantic clichés, to find a new language for working with heritage that does not ignore the reality of the 21st century. Academic essays are side by side here with interviews, as well as reviews of the latest events.

The publication is intended for researchers, students, as well as all those interested in the problems of preserving cultural heritage.

The first issue of the magazine was published in 2021.

The academic annual Tsaytshrift (צייַטשריפֿט) is the only journal dedicated to Jewish studies in Belarus. The first issue was presented at EHU’s Conference “Social Sciences, Humanities and Higher Education in Eastern Europe since 1991” in June 2011The annual addresses research questions specific to Belarusian and Eastern European Jewish studies while situating this scholarship within the broader context of emerging trends in the humanities at the turn of the 21st century. The editorial board considers the annual a continuation of the tradition of Jewish studies established by its forerunner—the earlier Tsaytshrift that was published in Minsk from 1926 to 1931.

The editors hope that Tsaytshrift will inspire and promote Jewish studies in Belarus as well as in other post-Soviet states and Eastern Europe. Contributors include Alexandra Polyan, a research assistant at Moscow State University’s Institute for Asian and African Studies; Velvl Chernin, a Yiddish poet and famous researcher of Yiddish literature who helped with the Yiddish section of the journal; Deborah Yalen, an assistant professor at Colorado State University specializing in Jewish-Russian history who edited the English articles; and Vilma Gradinskaitė, a researcher at the Vilna Gaon Jewish State Museum and lecturer at Vilnius University.

Women in politics: new approaches to the political

The Center for Gender Studies publishes a feminist almanac called Women in Politics: New Approaches to the Political. It approaches contemporary political issues in Belarus and post-Soviet states from the perspective of feminist criticism. The almanac targets political and social activists and also speaks to a generation of emerging scholars interested in political, social, and cultural concerns related to women’s participation in political movements in Belarus and gender studies more broadly.

At present, Women in Politics is the only Belarusian periodical that openly discusses issues related to gender, power, politics, and culture. The publication, dedicated to the complex dynamics of politics and gender, seeks to fill this gap and to offer critical analyses of current events in Belarusian society and other post-Soviet countries. It focuses on the problems of women’s participation in political and public life of Belarus as well as the ongoing post-socialist transition in this country.

The working languages of the almanac are Russian and Belarusian; some articles are also available in English. The almanac was conceived by Olga Karatch, is coordinated by Evgenia Ivanova, and edited by Ivanova and Alexander Pershái. For more information, click here.
