  • 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.

Short description

The German Association for East European Studies (DGO) in co-operation with several Institutes of the Leibniz Association and the Leibniz Science Campus “Eastern Europe – Global Area” holds this interdisciplinary conference that is jointly organized by the EEGA and the DGO branch in Leipzig.

Topic and objective of the symposium

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 globalization. These processes can be social, economic or cultural. The special focus of discussion, empirical material and findings should be on textbooks, as they are highly influential in the self-representation of nations. Papers with historical perspectives, e.g. on the agenda of a transnational socialist globalization, are as welcome as the countries’ own perspectives at present time.

The conference intends to highlight that such self-positioning partly constitutes national/collective identities in Eastern Europe. They are in turn, constantly utilised, reproduced, contested and adjusted. In this regard, history, geography, political/civic education and social studies textbooks as well as school curricula/syllabi are expected to give interesting insight to (national) self-positioning.
