The Slavonic and East European Review was founded in 1922 by Bernard Pares, R. W. Seton Watson and Harold Williams as the journal of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies. An international, peer-reviewed quarterly, SEER publishes scholarly articles on all subjects related to Russia, Central and Eastern Europe — languages & linguistics, literature, art, cinema, theatre, music, history, politics, social sciences, economics, anthropology — as well as reviews of new books in the field. The Review is published by the Modern Humanities Research Association on behalf of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London.
The Modern Humanities Research Association (MHRA) is an international organization with members in all parts of the world. The Association's purpose is to encourage and promote advanced study and research in the field of the modern humanities. It is concerned to break down the barriers between scholars working in different disciplines and to maintain the unity of humanistic scholarship in the face of increasing specialization.
