The year 2013 marked the 50th anniversary of the Centre for Russian and East European Studies now known as the Centre for Russian, European and Eurasian Studies (CREES). To mark this milestone we held a series of special seminars and an expanded annual conference. See details of our events and the 50 faces of CREES. Find out more about our current staff, research and teaching.
The 50 faces proved so popular and so many people wanted to share their happy memories of CREES that we welcome additional contributions from CREES alumni and former members of staff.

50th anniversary events included:
- I arrived at CREES as a postgraduate in autumn 1966. The first person I met in the old Baykov Library on the first floor of the Ashley Building was fellow-postgrad Greg Andrusz. I recall thinking how refreshing it was that CREES had people working on such topics as the sociology of housing in the USSR – the first of many surprises induced by the breadth of the CREES engagement with its subject area.
