Workshop, 13.-14.03.2018: Scholarship on Romania and Moldova within German Academia – Meeting 2018

The present workshop brings together academics from the German university system whoare currently working on Romania and Moldova. The group is a research forum initiated at the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (UCL) in the UK by and for PhD studentsworking on topics broadly relating to Romanian and Moldovan/Bessarabian politics, society,history, culture and literature. It started out as a semi-formal afternoon workshop in Londonand, as the network gradually grew, it became something of a moving feast with sessions atWadham College, Oxford, the History Institute in Cluj, Romania, University of Leicester (UK)and ECMI in Flensburg. In the process it has tried to provide a forum for research on less fre-quently covered topics and built a network of young scholars which sought to include the latestresearchers in the field based in the UK, Europe and the US. This year it is hosted by Bukovina-Institute at the University of Augsburg.
