About

The Yale Baltic Studies Program is an interdisciplinary forum for the study of the Baltic Sea region, with an emphasis on the lands that comprise contemporary Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. The program sponsors workshops, symposia, and lectures, and serves as a resource for and liaison among students and scholars whose work involves the Baltic region.

The Program hosts two visiting fellows from the region, appointed after a comprehensive international search held every other year.

The Baltic Studies Program is supported through the generosity of Dr. Kristaps J. Keggi, M.D. (Yale College, 1955); Mr. Juris Padegs (Yale College, 1954); and the family of the late Dr. Joseph Kazickas (Yale PhD 1951).
