Between Kyiv and Vienna: Stories of People, Ideas, and Objects in Circulation and Motion
Center for Urban History of East Central Europe
The Institute for Human Sciences
This multidisciplinary conference seeks to reexamine the modern history of the space loosely bound within the borders of today’s Ukraine and Austria, through the lens of circulation and motion. People who moved within, out of, and into the region, will be taken into consideration, the forces that drove them and the consequences of their movement will be studied; the flow of ideas that articulated, were set in motion, and resonated in life experience will be examined; and the circulation of material objects, goods, and resources that impacted societies and the environment, as well as shaped the relations and hierarchies between places and people will be discussed.
The academic program of the conference will be accompanied by evening public events; the program for these will be announced in September.
