Discursive and memorial transformations in Ukraine

Second session of the seminar RETHINK. Objects, models, and methods in Humanities and Social Sciences since the invasion of Ukraine

Since May 2023, the CEFRES Ukraine fellows in Humanities and Social Sciences remotely present their current research projects in discussion with Czech, French, and international specialists of respective fields. Our goal is to analyze what the Russian invasion has done to our disciplines, objects, methods of research and ways of thinking. Together, we invite fellows, colleagues in situ and all interested public to rethink concrete projects and debates regarding knowledge under war conditions, methods and models of research facing the war, and epistemological objects brutally (re)defined by the conflict.

Location: CEFRES Library, Na Florenci 3, Prague 1, and online. To attend online, please register here no later than 60 minutes before the beginning of the seminar.
Date: Tuesday, June 20th, 3.30pm – 5.30pm (4.30pm to 6.30pm Ukrainian time)
Language: English
