Politics, as that which relates to the organization of public life, and ontology, as the study of being, have long been intertwined. Left/right identity politics, for example, often ground themselves on an ontologized, or essentialized, identity. In contrast, many theorists view politics as the construction of identity. Jacques Ranciere, for instance, insists that politics determines the ontological status of its subjects, rather than the reverse; no "human being" preexists the political act.

On the Threshold of a New Era. Interdisciplinary Conference on the Beginnings of the Czechoslovak Republic

Type: 
Call for Papers
Date: 
August 31, 2018
Location: 
Czech Republic
Subject Fields: 
Humanities, Modern European History / Studies, Political History / Studies, Social Sciences

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.
