Conferences of Experts on Bohemia in Munich
The conference of experts on Bohemia in Munich is organized annually by the Collegium Carolinum. All persons sharing a professional interest in Bohemian-Moravian or Czech and German Bohemian / Sudeten German or Slovakian topics of research are welcomed to participate in this "exchange of information" of experts on Bohemia. The main goal of the conference is to provide a forum to experts on Bohemia to present planned, started and current research projects in the fields of history, linguistics, literature, cultural sciences, sociology, law, economics, geography, theology and other disciplines. "Bohemistik" is hereby understood in its widest sense as an interdisciplinary, often historically oriented occupation with aspects of the Bohemian countries, their culture and populace.
The aim of the event is not to present the final results of research, but rather to allow the discussion of problems, structure, methods and sources of new or current projects. Besides this, practical experiences and difficulties when applying to or working with organizations who grant funds to scholars, when working in archives and libraries in the Czech Republic or Slovakia are discussed. Participation in the conference of experts on Bohemia is open to all interested, domestic as well as foreign participants. Following the conference it is possible to continue the discussions in a brewery in Munich.
