History and Minorities: ECMI is a Part of the New Research Network

The ECMI is a part of the new network on Historical Minority Research, established by the Sorbian Institute in Bautzen.

Last week the ECMI Junior Researcher Sonja Wolf attended the kick-off workshop for a newly established network – Network for Historical Minority Research (Netzwerk historische Minderheitenforschung) taking place in Bautzen, Germany.

The new network was established by the Sorbian Institute in Bautzen and has the goal to serve as a “cooperative network of researchers and academic institutions and organizations working on minority research and history in the German speaking realm”, as well as a platform for new projects and publications.

Representing the ECMI, Sonja Wolf presented The Minority Map and Timeline of Europe (MMTE), an open access interdisciplinary and interactive research tool. Following the presentation Ms. Wolf discussed with the participants the common topics of interest and possible initiatives, especially in terms of data. The workshop ended with brainstorming on further joint initiatives of the network and future events.

The ECMI is dedicated to form wider networks of cooperation with various institutions and organizations on the topic of minorities. Read more about the ECMI networks here.

    Dear Colleagues
    thank you for contacting us in EURAC. I would be delighted to stay in touch with you for research purposes, field trips and academic exchange in general. For the past number of years I led a taught masters programme on Regional and Minority Studies in UCD, Ireland, and the Sorbs were one of the case studies used by me. I would really like to visit your area again, the last time I was there was in 1990!
    So please get/stay in touch, best wishes from Bozen
