The conference “On the Threshold of a New Era” draws on the broader attention given to the breakthrough year of 1918 to open up space for critical thinking about historical events and processes connected with the formation of Czechoslovakia in the social, cultural, political and economic context of post-war Europe, and especially in the Central European region. We have selected either topics which have been neglected, or, on the contrary, those which have been generating extraordinarily lively and conflicting discussions and thus raising new questions and research opportunities.
Confirmed keynote speakers:
The Historical Institute of the University of Wroclaw, together with the Institutes of English Studies and Romance Studies, invite scholars and PhD students to participate in the international conference Freedom, Equality… for Everyone? Women Fighting for Social Advancement 1700-1918, to be held in Wrocław, Poland, on November 20-21, 2018. The first words of the conference topic invoke the slogan of the French Revolution which aimed at democratizing society and, consequently, changing the old-world order.
Academica Press, a leading independent non-fiction publisher, enthusiastically calls for manuscripts from dynamic young scholars in international relations seeking to publish cutting edge work, including dissertations, M.A. theses, policy papers, and book manuscripts, in its new series, "St. James's Studies in World Affairs." New publications will ideally be devoted to recent and newsworthy issues and make imaginative use of analysis, theory, and method. The editorial director will gladly consider proposals for complete or nearly complete unpublished material of this type.
