As part of the project Trauma & Revival, the conference aims at observing and bringing forward histories of cultural relations and diplomacy between Eastern and Western Europe. The project creates connections between EU and Russia in a time when strained world political situation hampers scientific and cultural cooperation. As a counterbalance for rising nationalist discourse throughout Europe the project underlines the shared cultural heritage and history of Eastern and Western Europe.
