In the framework of our fourth work package on the Black Sea Region between dependency and independency of academic cultures in the interwar period, we would like to invite you to the 2019 workshop of the International University Seminar for Balkan Studies at SW-University Blagoevgrad. The workshop will take place on April 18-19, 2019 and offers a platform for discussions on “Autonomy, Dependence, Resistance” in scientific knowledge. You may take a look at the full program here.
If you happen to be in Sofia next week (16.03.2019), consider stopping by at the KEAC-BSR-workshop on “Women in the Public Sphere: Biographies, Achievements and Un-Acknowledgement”.
