International Conference „Balkan and Baltic States in United Europe: History, Religion, Cultures II“

The “Balkan Ethnology” Department is organizing the international conference „Balkan and Baltic States in United Europe: History, Religion, Cultures II“ to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria, October, 1-3, 2014 at the Institute of Ethnology and Folklore Studies with Ethnographic Museum.

Both the region of Еastern Europe, defined as Balkans, and the Baltics, consist of diverse states with a great variety of ethnic and religious communities and cultures. The study of the dynamic national, ethnic, religious and migration processes in the regions mentioned above is of a particular interest for scholars coming from those regions, as well as for researchers in other EU countries. We have been observing processes of national consolidation, on the one hand, and of revealing ethnic and religious diversity, on the other. While there have been endeavours for maintaining “the most conservative” elements of the national, ethnic and religious cultures, at the same time dynamic processes of innovations and emergence of new “foreign” elements and cultures occur.

Considering the specifics of the various communities and cultures, we believe that there are certain commonalities in the processes and developments in the individual nation-states that allow us to talk, on the one hand, about regions (based on common historical heritage and recent developments) and, on the other hand, about comparison of the two regions in the course of the state-building and Euro-integration process after 1989.

The conference continues the discussions which began in Sofia at the Institute of Folklore, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, dedicated to the processes of Euro-integration in the regions of the Balkans and the Baltics during the conference „Balkan and Baltic States in United Europe: History, Religion, Cultures“ (October 2009).

The programme of the conference is available at: http://www.balkanethnology.org/files/PROGRAMME.pdf
