The Intellectual History in East Central Europe Research Network (Web)
Time: 18.02.2021, 13-16.00 Uhr
Venue: virtual space, via Budapest/Vienna and Prague
The discussion “Writing women’s intellectual history in East Central Europe” will be based on a selected bibliography. The texts included in the bibliography raise the issue of the lack of women’s intellectual history in general, critically assess our conceptions of originality, creativity, and value, and ask what kind of Europe emerges when gender and history meet. Furthermore, the selected readings are beautiful examples of writing women’s intellectual history and the intellectual history of feminism in East Central Europe more broadly. These texts also serve as discussion starters about the opportunities and challenges, difficulties and limits, as well as the relevance of writing women’s intellectual here.
The roundtable discussion will be open to the public, and it will be followed by a reading seminar – based on a selection of pre-circulated texts – for a selected number of applicants.
