Research Forum at the XXIII International Congress of Historical Sciences Poznań 2020/2022

EEGA’s participation at the Research Forum at the 23rd Congress of Historical Sciences in Poznań was a great opportunity to present its research variety to an audience of established scholars and highly-qualified early career researchers, especially from Eastern Europe and Poland. Leipzig, the city of EEGA’s headquarters, could represent itself as the city of Global History it is, particularly with the ResearchCentre Global Dynamics (ReCentGlobe) of Leipzig University and the Leibniz ScienceCampus EEGA. Between panels and events, the approx. 400 present participants of the congress could walk by the Leipzig booth, which was located in the city’s castle called “Zamek” next to publishers, Polish universities and international history associations. Participants could take a look at a presentation of selected events and at books published by the participating institutions.

For personal contact EEGA’s spokesperson Matthias Middell  as well as the Research Area Coordinators Katja Castryck-Naumann (RA 4) and Frank Hadler (RA 2) came by to answer questions from the interested scholars, who were really keen on the comparative, interdisciplinary and transregional approach EEGA takes on investigating Eastern Europe as a research area that is always in motion.
