Czech-Slovak Committee of Historians
The bilateral Czech-Slovak Committee of Historians was established in 1994. The impetus for its creation arose from the dissolution of Czechoslovakia and the need for the continual multilateral development of scientific contacts within Czech and Slovak historiography. Committee members are appointed by the Czech National Committee of Historians and the Slovak National Committee of Historians of the Slovak Historical Society, respectively.
The committee promotes Czech and Slovak history and coordinates collaboration between Czech and Slovak historiographers. Among its long-term endeavours are the development of Czech studies and Slovak studies at Czech and Slovak universities and the facilitation of teacher and postgraduate exchanges between universities in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The committee collaborates on research projects relating to Czech-Slovak history, and since 1996 it has published its own almanac entitled Česko-slovenská historická ročenka [Czech-Slovak Historical Almanac]. Each year, the committee holds two meetings, in the spring in Slovakia and in the autumn in the Czech Republic. The meetings are organized in cities that are home to a university, a historical museum, or a similar institution. The committee meetings typically include a scientific workshop and/or conference devoted to topics concerning Czech-Slovak relations.
The committee serves as patron to a workshop for teachers and historians called Czech-Slovak Relations/Slovak-Czech Relations (held annually in Liberec since 1991) and to conferences of young scientists in 20th century Czech, Slovak, and Czechoslovak history (held in Hradec Králové since 2006).
