Om konferensen

The conference theme is “Places and Non-Places of Modernity: Movement, Memory and Imagination in Contemporary Europe”.

CBEES Annual Conference 3-4 December 2015

Places and Non-Places of Modernity
Movement, Memory and Imagination in Contemporary Europe

This interdisciplinary conference focus on the notion of place in the more recent modernity of globalization and internationalization, with its many histories of movement, migration, transfer and transmission. In particular, the conference turns the attention to the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe, where Europe appeared as a place, a memory and a lodestar for integration and modernization. It aims to examine the mechanisms and ideas conducting the transfers of goods, people, institutions and values in this new Europe.
 

The conference will have three keynote speakers:

  1. Stefan Jonsson, Professor of Ethnic Studies at the Department of Social and Welfare Studies, Linköping University
  2. Roma Sendyka, PhD, Director of the Research Center for Memory Cultures; Polish Studies Department, Jagellonian University, Krakow.
  3. Mikhail Iampolski, Professor of Comparative Literature, New York University
