The Graduate School of Social Research and the
Institute of Philosophy and Sociology from Warsaw,
The Sixth Annual Postgraduate Symposium on Central Eastern Europe: Beyond the Core and Periphery: Towards A New Understanding of Central Eastern Europe
Warsaw, November 15th - 19th, 2004
The symposium, previously hosted by University of California (Berkeley), the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (London) and the Graduate School for Social Research (Warsaw), is addressed to postgraduate students from around the world, whose academic research is focused on or is relevant to the social, cultural, political and/or economic issues of Central Eastern Europe.
The symposium will also host some prominent scholars, cultural and political figures and NGO activists whose work and research focuses on Central Eastern Europe, to deliver speeches or to take part in the round tables organized throughout the symposium. In this way, we hope, first, to give an opportunity to doctoral students to present their dissertations and to exchange views with other colleagues and specialists from around the world interested in similar topics, and second, to ensure dialogue between students and political and cultural personalities, activists and researchers, on the past, present and future of Central Europe.
During each day, five parallel workshops will be organized in five different areas of social research:
Culture and Arts;
Issues of Social Exclusion;
Comparative Perspectives on the Political and Economic Features of Central Eastern Europe.
