The British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) Czech and Slovak Study Group is marking the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovak state with Czechoslovakia 100, a Czech and Slovak Study Day held at Cardiff University on 11 May 2018.
Czechoslovakia 100 invites Czech and Slovak specialists (including language experts and postgraduate students) from around the UK, together with Czech and Slovak diplomats, policymakers and stakeholders, to Cardiff, where we will reassess the Czechoslovak state’s origins, significance, and legacies in a special 2018 BASEES Study Group Day/Conference timed to mark the centenary of the state’s foundation.
Czechoslovakia 100 is open to students, academics, diplomats, linguists and policymakers. The 100th anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovak state is a time to take stock, reconsider, reassess. Contributions (short/longer) are warmly invited from experts in relevant professions and academic disciplines.
Czechoslovakia 100 is sponsored by the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies, the College of Arts and Humanities and Arts at Cardiff University, Special Collections and Archives, the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic.
