History – yes, but which history?
In recent years we have been observing, how conflicts over history lead to tensions between neighbouring countries. Theoretical, conceptual and axiological differences and misunderstandings are very often responsible for conflicting assessments in historiography. Nation, empire, colonialism, occupation or genocide – these and many other notions are frequently used by historians. However, they are often understood differently, which may result in fiery disputes between scholars as well as nations.
The main goal of the conference “History – yes, but which history?”, organised by the Centre for Polish-Russian Dialogue and Understanding and The Natolin European Centre, is to hold a discussion about various research paradigms, methodologies and notions being used to describe the history of Europe, and its Eastern parts in particular.
Date: 27–28 September 2018 (Thursday-Friday)
Place: Natolin European Centre, Nowoursynowska street 84, Warsaw, Maria Skłodowska-Curie hall
