Narratives of Europe

How is Europe narrated from its Eastern half?


"The Narratives of Europe" project shares its research field with a number of other teams. There are also some resources that have significant relevance for the scholars of Europe and its regions. While we support all such initiatives, with some of them we cooperate more closely. If you are interested in "Narratives of Europe", you may like to have a look at them.


In April 2016, Roman Horbyk organised a panel at BASEES Annual Congress in Cambridge with Vitaly Chernetsky (University of Kansas) and Tamara Hundorova (Ukrainian Academy of Sciences), as well as co-organised a joint historical panel with Olena Palko (University of East Anglia).


On 16 June 2015, the project team arranged a joint session “Europe Faces Europe: Narratives from the East” at the ACSIS cultural studies conference “In the Flow: People, Media, Materialities” in Norrköping where subproject leaders presented their findings from the current stages of their work.
