Ráda bych nejprve poděkovala organizátorům tak náročné společenské akce za přijetí našeho volného panelu. Organizace byla skvělá, program jednotlivých témat dobře propojen. Oceňuji vydání bedekru, který napomohl k jednoduché orientaci...

Rád bych touto cestou především svým jménem, ale i jménem kolegů, kteří se zúčastnili jednání panelů P66 a P77 věnovaným otázkám vztahu Evropy a Ruska a stavu a perspektivám českých...

Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the English website of the 11th Congress of Czech historians. This professional meeting of historians of the Czech Republic will be held in the city of Olomouc from 13 to 15 September 2017.

The first Congress of Czech Historians was held in 1937. Since that time seven more Congresses of Czech Historians have been organized over the course of the 20th century. The Congresses are held on a fairly regular basis in the 21st century, every five or six years, and are co-organized by the Association of Czech Historians (Historical club 1872) and by a University History department/institute.

The Congress will be co-organized by Palacký University Olomouc, the Faculty of Arts, in 2017. The aim of this meeting is to bring together scholars from various disciplines of history research in order to discuss their specific topics in lively small groups rather than in formal plenary sessions. The Congress welcomes panels and papers not only in Czech, but also in other languages, such as English and German, and is ready and willing to host scholars from any other country.

Please be aware that the Congress runs two submission rounds: first, panel proposals are welcome, second, paper proposals are submitted into the accepted panels. There is no submission for stand-alone paper proposals.

The invited keynote speakers are Lynn Hunt (University of California, Los Angeles), former President of the American Historical Association, known for her work in European cultural history and historiography, and Charles Ingrao (Purdue University, Indiana), historian and public intellectual focused on the early modern history of the Habsburg monarchy and the contemporary Balkans.

Olomouc, ranked recently among the 10 hottest places in Europe by the Lonely Planet Publisher, is an exceptionally beautiful city with a number of Baroque monuments. All of the participants are invited to take part in a unique social event, this being a performance of a Baroque opera by Ensemble Damian.

We look forward to meeting you in Olomouc.
