Czechoslovakia 100


Conference venue
: Cardiff
Period: 11 May 2018

Description of the Event

Czechoslovakia 100 invites Czech and Slovak specialists (including language experts and postgraduate students) from around the UK, together with Czech and Slovak diplomats, policymakers and stakeholders, to Cardiff, where we will reassess the Czechoslovak state’s origins, significance, and legacies in a special 2018 BASEES Study Group Day/Conference timed to mark the centenary of the state’s foundation.

Czechoslovakia 100 is open to students, academics, diplomats, linguists and policymakers. The 100th anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovak state is a time to take stock, reconsider, reassess.  Contributions (short/longer) are warmly invited from experts in relevant professions and academic disciplines.

Czechoslovakia 100 is sponsored by the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies, the College of Arts and Humanities and Arts at Cardiff University, Special Collections and Archives, the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic.

Short communications (10 minutes) or longer talks (30 minutes) relating to any aspect of the origins, varied experiences or final dissolution of the Czechoslovak state, together with reflections on their relevance and lessons for today, are invited from postgraduates, academics, diplomats, policymakers and stakeholders.

Specialists with interests in Czechoslovak history, politics, law, culture, diplomacy, international relations, film, language, economics, art, architecture, music and literature are equally welcome to contribute. Talks will be presented as part of themed panels.

Speakers are asked to avoid jargon and to keep strictly to time.

The language of the conference will be English.
