Self-positioning of Eastern European Societies in Global Relations

Interdisciplinary Conference on Conceptions of Space and Self-presentations in School Textbooks

  • Date: November 6, 2017, 5 pm – November 7, 2017, 4:30 pm
  • Venue: Saxon Academy of Sciences in Leipzig (SAW) / GWZO Leipzig
  • Organizer: Representatives of the Leibniz ScienceCampus EEGA (in charge: Prof. Dr. Sebastian Lentz), The German Association for East European Studies (DGO), Georg Eckert Institute for International Textbook Research (GEI), Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe, Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) and the University of Münster with international guests.

The core objective of the interdisciplinary symposium is to raise awareness for the autonomy of Eastern European countries and societies with regard to processes of globalisation. These processes can be social, economic or cultural. The special focus of discussion, empirical material and findings will be on textbooks, as they are highly influential in the self-representation of nations. The symposium intends to highlight that such self-positioning partly constitutes national and collective identities in Eastern Europe. These identities are in turn constantly utilised, reproduced, contested and adjusted. In this regard, history, geography, political and civic education and social studies textbooks as well as school curricula/ syllabi will give interesting insight into (national) self-positioning.
