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.
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.
We will have a workshop on “Visual Representations of Femininities and Masculinities: The Balkans and South Caucasus in the Digital Age” at University of Graz on March, 12-13. For more information and the full program please click here.
Join us if you happen to be in Graz!
