“Central Europe and Colonialism” organising committee meeting

The organising committee for the conference on “Central Europe and Colonialism” met on 12 December for the first time.

The committee consisted of proff. Pieter Emmer (Leiden), Siegfried Huigen (Wrocław), Michael North (Greifswald), Renate Pieper (Graz), Dorota Praszalowicz (Krakow) and dr. Dorota Kolodziejczyk (Wrocław).

The conference covered three themes: migration from Central Europe to the colonies, the genesis of scientific and scholarly discourses that developed in Central Europe in relationship to the colonial world and the application of insights from (post)colonial studies to the study of history and culture of Central Europe.

The conference was planned for September 2016.
