Book Launch and Round Table Discussion (Munich)
On Monday, 28 October 2019, LMU Munich's Department of the History of Eastern and Southeastern Europe and the Graduate School in co-operation with the German Polish Doctoral College "Poland and Germany in Modern Europe" invite to a book launch and round table discussion with Balázs Trencsényi (Budapest), Maria Falina (Dublin) and Michal Kopeček (Prag/Budapest/Jena) about "A History of Modern Political Thought in East Central Europe".
The second volume "Negotiating Modernity in the 'Short Twentieth Century' and Beyond, Part II: 1968-2018" of "A History of Modern Political Thought in East Central Europe" has been published with Oxford University Press in late 2018. The book is edited by Balázs Trencsenyi, Michal Kopeček, Luka Lisjak Gabrijelčič, Maria Falina, and Mónika Baár. It provides the first synthetic overview and unique insight into the history of modern political thought in East Central Europe as well as a comparative approach and goes beyond the nation-centred studies prevalent in the field. The first volume "Negotiating Modernity in the 'Long Nineteenth Century'" was published in 2016.
After presenting the new volume, a round table discussion will take place with Martin Schulze Wessel (Munich) and Cornelia Klinger (Tübingen); it is chaired by Kornelia Kończal (Munich). The event will be in English language.
The lecture is part of the Graduate School's lecture series "Forum" and is open to the public upon earlier registration via email to kornelia.konczal [at] lmu.de.
