CEERES Events

Drawing on research for a monograph in-progress entitled “The Czech Manuscripts: Poetics, Faith, Scholarship,” this presentation will examine the qualities of the manuscripts themselves, both as physical and as literary objects, their effective use in the Czech cultural revival of the period, and the cultural and intellectual horizons of the period that made the manuscripts (seem) real.

We welcome paper proposals focusing on historical specters as well as those haunting the region today – nationalisms, ethnocentricity, racism, sexism, homo/transphobia, and others.
