Program: Knowledge and Ideological Frontlines

We are happy to provide you with the program of our upcoming conference on “Knowledge and Ideological Frontlines. Europe and the Black Sea Region after World War II”. Given the present situation of Covid-19 spreading all across the continent, we are currently also looking into alternative ways of exchanging ideas if the developments in the next few weeks does not allow us to come together at SW-University Blagoevgrad after all.

Workshop Cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the spread of Covid-19 we are forced to cancel the workshop “Visual Representations of Femininities and Masculinities: The Balkans and South Caucasus in the Digital Age” which was supposed to take place at University of Graz this week. We are looking into alternative forms of presenting the intriguing research upon which this workshop would have been based. Stay tuned.

Concluding Odessa-Conference

Thank you Odessa for providing us with the ideal platform to engage in lively discussions on (in-)dependent academic cultures in the turbulent interwar Black Sea Region. Lots of questions raised rather than answered but we’re looking forward to building on newly acquired insights when taking on our next work package and “Ideological frontlines: WW II and Soviet hegemony”
