LATE-OTTOMAN IDENTITIES: THE NATIONAL, TRANSNATIONAL AND MARGINAL


With Hasan Kayalı (University of California, San Diego), Ebru Akcasu (Charles University, Prague), and Stefano Taglia (Oriental Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague)

CS: Eastern Europe Since 1914

How can a small nation-state survive? Why do people choose communism or fascism, and why do they then rebel? These very current questions have been central to the East European experience throughout the 20th century. This course will examine the upheavals in the region from World War I through the revolutions of 1989-90 and the Bosnian war, as a way to understanding historical processes such as revolution, nationalism, and modernization.

CS: Monarchy and Modernity in Central Europe

The course will look at the relationship between monarchical authority and the process of political and social modernization in Germany and Austria from the 18th through the 19th centuries. This will involve the examination of various historiographical issues connected with this process.

CS: The Other Europe 1848-2000

This course will explore the history of Eastern Europe from 1848 to the present, with special focus on the "small nations" and minorities of East Central Europe: the Czechs, Poles, Jews and Ukrainians. Particular attention will be devoted to modernization and nation-building, the social aspects of integration and disintegration, the main features of the Communist system, and the problems of post-Communist cultural and economic reconstruction.

WORKSHOP> 2018 Tannisho Workshops in Berkeley and Kyoto: March 2-4 and June 22-24

The Centers for Japanese Studies and Buddhist Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, together with Ōtani University and Ryūkoku University in Kyoto announce the 2018 workshop schedule for our ongoing seminar on the Tannishō, focusing on critically examining premodern and modern hermeneutics of this core text of the Shin sect of Buddhism, and arguably the most well-read religious text in postwar Japan. 2018 will be the second year in this five-year project that meets twice each year.
