|Seminar for a group of Central European and Israeli Doctorate students (all expenses paid)|
Centre for International Cooperation in the framework of Theodor Herzl Distinguished Chair at Masaryk University organizes a seminar for a group of five Central European and five Israeli Doctorate students in Brno from February 17th – 20th, 2019.
All expenses including travel from the home institution, accommodation, meals, rich cultural program etc. are paid by the organizers.
The main theme of the seminar is the theme 100 years of national states in Central Europe and 70 years of State of Israel. However the legacy of Tomas Masaryk and Theodor Herzl, i.e. creation of a nation, nationalism, state building, leadership, national identities, but also the links that develop and connect the legacies with the issues today - growth of radicalism, extremism, national and ethnic haters, global and local conflicts, as well as ideas of humanism, human rights and democracy – can be addressed. Direct references to the great personalities of Masaryk and Herzl do not have to be included in the proposal, nor in the actual paper.
Above all, the seminar aims to attract intelligent and open Ph.D. candidates with interest beyond their own respective fields, who want to share their research findings with the like-minded peers from the Central Europe and Israel.
