    1989’s contested legacies

    The challenging of ideological, institutional and (geo)political heritage

    This conference aims at rethinking the legacy of 1989 in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) through the prism of its ongoing contestations, with a focus on the current trends and deliberate political efforts that challenge the major achievements of Velvet Revolutions as well as the outcomes of the collapse of the Iron Curtain. 1989 launched a process that continues to this day. Three decades of transformations, crises and setbacks have noticeably changed the shape of Central and Eastern European societies.

    DARIAH Annual Event 2019: Humanities Data

    The DARIAH Annual Event 2019 thematizes a catalogue of research questions that arise when we speak of Humanities Data. At the very heart of this topic linger questions around the type and amount of data that humanists collect: what kind of data do we have; where is it; and who owns it? Is our data indeed complex, and if so, what makes it complex? How do definitions and conceptualisations of the term ‘data’ resonate with or, perhaps more accurately, alienate us from our conceptions of our source landscape as art and humanities scholars? And, of course, how will the major European policy initiative to build an Open Science Cloud for research data impact upon our practices and opportunities? The upcoming DARIAH Annual Event 2019 combines forms of encounter developed in prior meetings, such as Working Groups meetings, workshops organised by Working Groups and projects, and a Marketplace to exchange ideas around new research projects and infrastructural solutions with an open conference setting.

    Shapes of Futures

    For the nineteenth-century man, the future was “a simple combination of already known things” that could be calculated on the basis of given probabilities. For the twentieth-century man, the concept of the future was entirely different. But, perhaps, disorder is not the last word that humanity has to say about its understanding of the future. Liquid modernity has melted into postmodernity and, after almost two decades of the twenty-first century have passed, one may ask about the contemporary visions and conceptions of the future. Is the future, as Hawkins asserts categorically just “a spectrum of possibilities”? Or, maybe, in Derrida’s words, “the ineluctable world of the future […] proclaims itself at present, beyond the closure of knowledge.”

    Myths, memories and economies: Post-socialist transformations incComparison

    9th genealogies of memory conference

    The conference organisers invite presentations on economy and memory, in particular, but not limited to the context of post-socialist economic transformations in East-Central Europe, as well as their interactions with parallel economic processes in other parts of the world. They may be based on a wide range of disciplinary perspectives, including history, sociology, anthropology, economics, literary and film studies, and others. While the focal point for most economic transformations in question is the 1990s, we invite speakers to address these changes in the context of their longer histories with attention to the genealogy of shifts in economic thought through the 20th century and related memory processes.

    Freedom, Equality… for Everyone? Women Fighting for Social Advancement 1700-1918

    The Historical Institute of the University of Wroclaw, together with the Institutes of English Studies and Romance Studies invite all interested in the subject to participate in the forthcoming conference. The first words of the topic invoke the slogan of the French Revolution which aimed at democratizing society and, consequently, changing the old-world order. These postulates would seem to remain valid today, as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, which contributed significantly to the progressive implementation of Enlightenment ideas, the enshrinement of the right to vote for women, and the establishment of gender equality in the majority of European countries. Although attempts to improve women’s position in society can be observed throughout history, we would like to concentrate our discussion on “the long 18th and 19th centuries”, as that era’s political, economic, and – most importantly – mental transformations set the stage for 20th-century breakthroughs.

    Women and the struggle for social progress, 1700-1918

    Bien que les efforts pour l’amélioration du statut des femmes puissent être observés au cours de toute l’histoire, nous voudrions focaliser notre discussion sur les « longues XVIIIe et XIXe siècles », car c’étaient les transformations politiques, économiques, aussi bien que les changements dans les mentalités de ce temps-là qui aboutirent au tournant du XXe siècle.

    Against Conventions. Uncommon social roles of women and men from Early Modern Times to 1945

    The organizers propose to use tools which the category of gender gives in humanistic and social studies. However, we would like to overcome present tendencies to separate studies related to women or men. We hope that during the meeting it will be possible to capture mechanisms occurred while undertaking tasks which were contrary to social norms from both “feminine”, and “masculine” perspectives. We are aware that definitely more women  struggled with social boundaries. Nevertheless, we consider the reflection on men’s experience, who also faced such challenges, as equally important.

    (E)motion

    Cultural Literacy in Europe: Second Biennial Conference (CLE2017)

    CLE 2017 is dedicated to the issue of motion, which is crucial for the contemporary human condition. The concept of motion captures the state of affairs in Europe today, where seemingly rock-solid arrangements, like the shapes of borders, are being nullified and apparently irreversible processes, like European integration, are turned around and dismantled. It marks our spatial relations, as is clearly visible in the challenges of migration, experiences of social and professional mobility, social movements or tourism. Mobility also has a temporal aspect, which is visible in the processual and performative character of identity, memory or history. The other key term we would like to address is emotion, which aims to contextualize this movement and localize it in human affectivity – feelings, motives and perceptions. Texts and other kinds of representations, the body in movement, forging personal links, living with memories – all these bring motion and emotion together. We believe that the notion of cultural literacy will help us read and comprehend these diverse, changeable phenomena.

    Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives

    Digital Humanities research always takes place within a specific institutional context, which is constituted by both science system and its societal environment. DH centres, which are being launched all over the world, have therefore to face a number of challenges in order to function effectively and fulfill the potential of DH. The conference „Digital Humanities Centres: Experiences and Perspectives” will be an opportunity to share experiences and reflect on the perspectives of DH institutions. The consideration of different aspects of DH centres activities from various points of view will hopefully enable participants to come with new ideas and solutions useful in they day-to-day work.

    Digital Ecosystems

    The digital revolution is resulting in social, economic and political transformations. These changes are often conceptualized using the term "digital ecosystem" – understood/conceived as infosphere enriched by social and economic values. We propose the notion of "digital ecosystem" as the starting point of analysis for new interdisciplinary approaches, both theoretical and applied. Are the contemporary environments of work, economy, science, culture, politics and information becoming digital ecosystems?
