Centre for Research on the History and Culture of Eastern Europe
Subsite – publications
The Centre for Research on the History and Culture of Eastern Europe commenced its activities on 1 September 2015. It coordinates collaboration between scholars and research institutions specializing in topics relating to the cultural, social, economic, religious, and political history of Eastern Europe as well as topics concerning the past of this historical discipline. It works to support and develop interinstitutional and interdisciplinary collaboration with a focus on the comparative and multidisciplinary study of the history of Eastern Europe, wherein the region is viewed as the geopolitical and cultural space of Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, the Baltics, and countries of the former Soviet Union with a predominantly Slavonic element and possible overlaps into the neighbouring cultures and territories with which they share close ties. The research undertaken at the centre spans the entire chronology of the history of Eastern Europe. Projects are typically preceded by scientific meetings, conferences, and colloquia focusing, not least of all, on matters of methodology and its transformations with regard to the genesis and evolution of the field. The mission of the centre is to restore and develop the tradition of Czech historical and cultural comparative and interdisciplinary studies on the history of Eastern Europe within a broad geopolitical context and, in so doing, open a more comprehensive view (generated in expert opinions, discussions, and new concepts) of Eastern Europe’s past, which is approached from a wide perspective not only in terms of directing discourse and questions but also in addressing cultural-historical and political transformations. All the while, emphasis is placed on the international aspect.

The mission of the scientific council is to support scientific and specialized collaboration between historians and other researchers studying problems of the history of Eastern Europe within the context of interdisciplinary chronological and diachronic research on the past of Eastern European countries. This research primarily focuses on a comparative analytical-synthetic understanding of the society, nation, culture, and civilization of Eastern Europe as viewed in broad geopolitical and cultural continuities as well as on the development and transformations of the methodology and field in which that research is conducted. The council’s main activities include publishing, scientific and interdisciplinary meetings, domestic and international conferences, colloquia, and discussions. First and foremost, members of the council are scholars of history but also of other fields relating directly to the history of Eastern Europe and the past of the discipline that studies it. The council’s international composition provides for a bolder confrontation with and mutual enrichment of the Czech national perspective.
