“Global Eastern Europe” – Text Book Project

In November 2019, an editorial board commissioned by the Leibniz ScienceCampus “Eastern Europe – Global Area” (EEGA) has started working on the text book project “Global Eastern Europe” (working title).

Combining expertise from all five EEGA research areas, the volume comprises findings and outcomes from more than three years of fruitful EEGA research activities. At the same time, it pursues the goal to stress and demonstrate the importance of transregional perspectives on Eastern Europe: regarding, for instance, its global and regional entanglements and (self-)positioning in current and historical globalisation processes.

As a textbook, “Eastern Europe – Global Area” will be tailored for use in study programmes at EEGA’s partner educational institutions in Halle, Jena and Leipzig, as well as internationally. Both students and young researchers are considered target audiences.

The editorial board consists of Dr. Katja Nauman and Dr. Gilad Ben-Nun. Dr. Naumann, specialist for transregional and transnational entanglements in Eastern Europe, among others, has been researcher at the Leibniz Institute for the History and Culture of Eastern Europe (GWZO) since 2008. Dr. Ben-Nun, former EEGA research fellow and lecturer for Global and Migration Studies at the Global and European Studies Institute (GESI) at Leipzig University, is a historian of international law and an expert on the history of refugee law and forced migration.
