VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland) - The international scientific conference on The Russianness: longing for self-identity

When? 20.-21.09.2022

Where? Poznań (Poland)

The theme of the conference is synergistically inspired by several premises: (i) the formulation by Russian intellectuals of the content of the so-called Russian idea, i.e. the search for an idea for the development and creative presence of Russia in European culture after a kind of 'Enlightenment shock' initiated in Russia by Peter the Great, and consequently the development of alternative theoretical trends in this area; (ii) the obsessive topos of spiritual and civilizational identity in Russian philosophical-socio-political thought; (iii) a new, post-pandemic polarization of the world, in which Russia again traditionally seeks its multidimensional position as one of the main actors of the geopolitical game, and the very issue of collective (e.g. national) and civic identity has become extremely morally important on a global scale; (iv) the need to understand the Russian axiology of identity, the axiolingual image of the world and the conceptual self-image (especially in the context of the ideological denationalization in 1917-1991) of Russians as a key component of the rationalization of thinking about Russia in European societies, and especially in opinion-forming circles. For these reasons, the conference will also be an opportunity for a clear conceptualization of connotative references of the Russkij and Rossijski lexemes and the so-called Russkovo Mira project.

The profile of the conference is conceived as a research forum, having the character of both inquiries in the form of textual (and / or audiovisual) presentations of author's views, as well as academic debate. We want to move in an open formula of modern, reflective pandisciplinary humanities, combining the spheres of philosophy and cultural studies (including religious studies), linguistics, literary studies and art, sociology and psychology, history and political science and related disciplines. The form of an essay, loud thinking, open-ended questions, as well as the debatability and controversy of hypotheses within the framework of method and scientific freedom are welcome.

Special speeches in plenary sessions:

  • Prof. Janusz Dobieszewski (UW)
  • Prof. Lilianna Kiejzik (UZ)
  • Prof. Andrzej de Lazari (UŁ)

ALL DISCIPLINES: eDOCation - Young researchers ("eDOCs") Further education for companies

What is eDOCation all about?
eDOCation is the first online platform where young scientists ("eDOCs") offer continuing education for companies. I launched the initiative together with my former doctoral colleague Tobias Hornig (now a data scientist at Siemens). The platform contributes to the transfer of knowledge from universities to business practice and to improving the financial situation and future prospects of doctoral students, postdocs and junior professors. Market research conducted by us has shown that our eDOCs could earn a high three-digit € amount for a two-hour research workshop in companies. At the same time, eDOCation offers companies and their employees the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art science in the sense of lifelong learning and to gain access to the country's brightest minds as mentors in the "war for talent". The company is currently being promoted by the Stifterverband as one of the "30 best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of tomorrow" as part of the WIRKUNG HOCH 100 initiative. More information about eDOCation is available at www.edocation.org and in the attached presentation.
 
You want to get to know us?
The eDOCation Powerbank regularly offers free and non-binding workshops that can support you in research & teaching as well as personal growth. The following events are planned for the semester break (including links to Eventbrite)

 
Would you like to give talks in companies and be one of our eDOCs?
Send us your application including the following documents

  • CV [or link to LinkedIn profile],
  • High resolution picture,
  • research topic/s,
  • training offer for companies (e.g. lectures, seminars, workshops),
  • declaration that we may use your data,

please send your application to edoc@edocation.org. More information, such as selection criteria or forms of continuing education, can be found here. You can view the profiles of our current eDOCs here.
 
How else can you support us?
If you find the idea of eDOCation exciting, we would be happy if you would personally recommend it to friends and acquaintances in academia and industry. You can also help us to expand our network and keep up to date with the latest news by following us on LinkedIn.

Where? Seville, Spain and Online

The Annual Research Conference, jointly organised by the Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (ECFIN) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, calls for posters from early career researchers in the fields of economics or related disciplines on the theme of this year’s Annual Research Conference (20-21 September 2022, in Seville, Spain and online): ‘How to turn green in the European way? Keeping the cutting edge while remaining fair and social’.

Submissions from academic fields other than economics are encouraged, but research presented at the conference should be directly anchored (and relevant) to economic policy making.

The call for posters is open to PhD students and those who finished their PhDs no more than six years ago.

VARIOUS DISCIPLINES: Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań (Poland) - The international scientific conference on The Russianness: longing for self-identity

When? 20.-21.09.2022

Where? Poznań (Poland)

The theme of the conference is synergistically inspired by several premises: (i) the formulation by Russian intellectuals of the content of the so-called Russian idea, i.e. the search for an idea for the development and creative presence of Russia in European culture after a kind of 'Enlightenment shock' initiated in Russia by Peter the Great, and consequently the development of alternative theoretical trends in this area; (ii) the obsessive topos of spiritual and civilizational identity in Russian philosophical-socio-political thought; (iii) a new, post-pandemic polarization of the world, in which Russia again traditionally seeks its multidimensional position as one of the main actors of the geopolitical game, and the very issue of collective (e.g. national) and civic identity has become extremely morally important on a global scale; (iv) the need to understand the Russian axiology of identity, the axiolingual image of the world and the conceptual self-image (especially in the context of the ideological denationalization in 1917-1991) of Russians as a key component of the rationalization of thinking about Russia in European societies, and especially in opinion-forming circles. For these reasons, the conference will also be an opportunity for a clear conceptualization of connotative references of the Russkij and Rossijski lexemes and the so-called Russkovo Mira project.

The profile of the conference is conceived as a research forum, having the character of both inquiries in the form of textual (and / or audiovisual) presentations of author's views, as well as academic debate. We want to move in an open formula of modern, reflective pandisciplinary humanities, combining the spheres of philosophy and cultural studies (including religious studies), linguistics, literary studies and art, sociology and psychology, history and political science and related disciplines. The form of an essay, loud thinking, open-ended questions, as well as the debatability and controversy of hypotheses within the framework of method and scientific freedom are welcome.

Special speeches in plenary sessions:

  • Prof. Janusz Dobieszewski (UW)
  • Prof. Lilianna Kiejzik (UZ)
  • Prof. Andrzej de Lazari (UŁ)

ALL DISCIPLINES: eDOCation - Young researchers ("eDOCs") Further education for companies

What is eDOCation all about?
eDOCation is the first online platform where young scientists ("eDOCs") offer continuing education for companies. I launched the initiative together with my former doctoral colleague Tobias Hornig (now a data scientist at Siemens). The platform contributes to the transfer of knowledge from universities to business practice and to improving the financial situation and future prospects of doctoral students, postdocs and junior professors. Market research conducted by us has shown that our eDOCs could earn a high three-digit € amount for a two-hour research workshop in companies. At the same time, eDOCation offers companies and their employees the opportunity to benefit from state-of-the-art science in the sense of lifelong learning and to gain access to the country's brightest minds as mentors in the "war for talent". The company is currently being promoted by the Stifterverband as one of the "30 best ideas for the education, science and innovation system of tomorrow" as part of the WIRKUNG HOCH 100 initiative. More information about eDOCation is available at www.edocation.org and in the attached presentation.
