Area Studies under Discussion is a regular series of debates on current themes in area studies organized by the Leibniz ScienceCampus Europe and America in Regensburg, the Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe in Marburg, and the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) in Leipzig.

Trends, Topics and Challenges in Current Eastern European Historiography

In recent years, increasing restrictions have emerged, impacting the work of historians, in particular those from the various states of Eastern Europe. The growing barriers include limited granting of scholars' visas, imposing restrictions on investigating certain topics (such as gender studies or critical investigation of the past), as well as using administrative methods to constrain archival research.

In this event, we invite scholars to reflect on their experiences and offer perspectives on how to continue fostering international cooperations. How do colleagues experience the situation on the ground? What difficulties do they have to live with? What challenges does this pose for their work and their cooperation with international colleagues? What impact does political influence have on research by scholars from Eastern Europe?

While discussing these challenges in the virtual roundtable, we also look to share insight on emerging trends, topics and approaches in historical studies.

The sixth session of Area Studies under Discussion will take place online via Zoom on Wednesday 29 March, 15:00–17:00
Meeting ID: 648 5074 1030
