Teatime Conversations: A series of open discussions with guest speakers and the research group Prisma Ukraïna: War, Migration and Memory

With this series of biweekly conversations led by the research group Prisma Ukraïna: War, Migration and Memory, we offer a research-oriented and participatory discussion of transregional perspectives around topics related to our project and facilitate decentralized forms of academic cooperation and knowledge transfer.

This series of biweekly discussions (usually every second and fourth Tuesday of the month) considers individual topics centered around one of the following thematic streamlines:

  • Streamline 1. Memory at war: Cultural and historical dynamics
  • Streamline 2. Global history narratives on societies in crisis
  • Streamline 3. The role of scholarship, art, language and culture during times of crisis

By bringing together prominent scholars with the research group’s fellows, the discussion series provides an opportunity for multi-perspective and interdisciplinary academic knowledge exchange between researchers who work on similar issues of conflict, migration and memory studies across various regions and contexts or on issues that are central to the research group, such as collective memory, history, cultural heritage, social justice, migration and forced displacement, among others. Through the talks, we create a platform for networks that may lead to new ideas, questions, and perhaps even to scientific cooperation in the form of publications, research projects and investigations both within and beyond the Prisma Ukraïna program.

Each conversation starts with a short presentation by the guest speaker and is based on a pre-circulated project description or literature (e.g., a text, article or book) written or recommended by the speaker and aligned with the topic of the discussion. It is followed by an open conversation lasting around one hour. 

For more information on the specific conversations, see the calendar of events.

The events start at 17:00 CET and are held via Zoom.


The conversations are closed events, however, if you are interested in attending one of the sessions, please contact the coordinator of the series:
