The Leibniz ScienceCampus “Eastern Europe – Global Area” (EEGA) is committed to developing new research perspectives on Eastern Europe, engaging in knowledge exchange activities on the region with stakeholders, and promoting young researchers. It follows the idea that the multi-disciplinary and multi-faceted examination of processes of globalisation are a key for a better understanding of actual societal developments. The focus is on Eastern Europe’s diverse, tension-filled, and sometimes paradoxical globalisation projects “from within” and “from the outside”, and thus, on the self-positioning of Eastern European societies under the global condition.
The ScienceCampus EEGA offers open-rank and cross-institutional activities that create an efficient platform for excellent multi-disciplinary cooperation. Part of these collaborative activities are thematic workshops and conferences organised by and for Postdocs.
The scholar(s) organising the thematic workshop, writing retreat or discussion forum are asked to publish a summary of the event in the Campus’ online journal EEGA@connections (about 1.000 words) or in form of a short working paper. The event should be open for junior and senior scholars of EEGA member institutions.
