The annual conference of the research network project “European Times” (EUTIM) will take place from 1 to 3 December 2021. Under the theme “History of Science and the Challenges of 'Non-simultaneity' in Eastern and Central Europe”, scholars from various disciplines will discuss complex interconnections of knowledge production in “East” and “West”, focusing in particular on manifestations of non-simultaneity. The discussions will concentrate on the category of “theories from the East” and the ways in which “Western” conceptual frameworks have been domesticated in Central and Eastern Europe. 

The three panels of the conference will focus on the development of the history of ideas with regard to phenomena of non-simultaneity, literary criticism in Soviet Ukraine in the 1920s and early 1930s, and the complexity of scholarly interactions during the Cold War Period.

The conference will be held online in English and will start on 1 December, 14.00 h, with the opening lecture by Annette Werberger on “Asynchronicities in Cultural and Literary Studies”.

We would like to invite you to participate in the conference and discuss the above mentioned issues.
