The ASEEES Working Group Childhood in Eastern Europe, Eurasia, and Russia (ChEEER), which was formerly known as the Working Group on Russian Children’s Literature and Culture (WGRCLC), is a scholarly non-profit organization dedicated to fostering closer communication among scholars interested in Russian, East European, and Eurasian children’s literature, history of childhood, theater, cinema, popular media, education, and other aspects of children’s culture. Our mission is to facilitate the exchange of scholarly information and research through the organization of meetings and conferences and to prepare scholarly works for publication.

The Working Group plans to organize conferences, meetings, and panel sessions at the annual conventions of ASEEES, AATSEEL, and other scholarly meetings. The Working Group holds annual meetings at the ASEEES national convention.
