Central Europe in a Changing World - Conference

27-31 July, 2015
Debrecen, Hungary

central europe in a changing world conferenceWhile the concept and image of what may be called Central Europe has been changing through the past couple of decades, we do believe that there is a number of historical, political, economic and cultural issues which have played an important part in shaping the countries of this European region during the past centuries. Debrecen Summer School, one of the educational and cultural players in this part of the world since 1927, is happy to invite scholarly papers which investigate the interrelationships and interactions between and within the countries and cultures of Central Europe in any walk of life including arts and sciences, languages and literatures, history and economics, as well as politics and sociology.

The interdisciplinary conference is designed to bring together, primarily but not exclusively, young scholars whose main professional aim is to build an intellectual bridge of better understanding between the countries of Central Europe, including (generally, but not exclusively) Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania Slovakia, and Slovenia. Traditional lectures and presentations will be supplemented with workshops and roundtable discussions. Participants of the conference will have the opportunity to experience and/or take part in some traditional Hungarian cultural events as well as to learn about the past and present of Debrecen, the ‘Calvinist Rome’ and two-time capital of Hungary.

—Language and Literature
