Russia-Ukraine war: Yaroslav Hrytsak comments the situation in Ukraine
WAR IN UKRAINE: Russia targets civilian population in Ukraine. Facts
This conference aims to consider a shift in attitudes towards the eighteenth century, re-assess the established narratives and concepts, and entwine eighteenth-century Ukraine into the broader East European and global context. It also aims to stimulate eighteenth-century studies and initiate a forum for scholars across a range of disciplines to meet regularly and to engage in discussions on a variety of topics related to the history and literature of Ukraine, Europe, and the wider world of the period.
The Ukrainian Catholic University and the European Business History Association invite scholars and Ph.D. students of any relevant discipline to submit paper proposals in a broad range of topics related to the uses of the past by firms in Central-Eastern Europe (CEE). In the context of this workshop, we wish to approach the past as a resource, which is used or can be used by business organizations for their purposes in the present and the future. We understand history as performative interpretation, a tool that helps actors make sense of the past and present and build towards the future. We focus on uses of the past in CEE; however, case studies on other regions are also welcome in case they deepen our understanding of “uses of the past” by CEE enterprises.
