Vortragsreihen

The lecture series “historical and current developments in Southeastern Europe and the Near East” draws on the lecture series “Southeastern Europe—Historical Anthropology” which were held between 2003 and 2008 and invited international scholars to talks and workshops in Graz. The current series seeks to highlight current international research at the University Graz by inviting an interdisciplinary mixture of renown scholars to Graz. It thus seeks to encourage academic exchange , to provide younger researchers in Graz with the opportunity to discuss cutting edge scholarship and to anchor Graz as a centre for research on Southeastern Europe. The lecture series is co-organised by the Centre for Southeast European Studies, the Centre for the Study of Balkan Societies and Cultures and the Centre for Southeast European History.
