8 – 9 June: "Truth" and Narration. Conspiracies and Conspiracy Theories in Eastern European Cultures and Literature / Conference at the Unipark

Friday, 8 June: 09:45 KEYNOTE: Eliot Borenstein (New York): Plots Against Russia: Conspiracy, Sincerity, and Propaganda // 17:30 ROUND TABLE: Why Do Conspiracy Theories Thrive in Post-Soviet Russia? with Alexander Panchenko, Konstantin Bogdanov, Sergey Shtyrkov, Svetlana Tambovtseva (St. Petersburg) // Erzabt-Klotz-Str. 1, FB Slavic Studies, 3rd floor.

Programm

Verschwörungen und Verschwörungstheorien (also Vermutungen, dass Verschwörungen den maßgeblichen Hintergrund für Ereignisse ausmachen) schaffen Feindbilder und Abgrenzungen und lösen in der Folge weitere Abgrenzungen aus. Dies zeigt sich etwa darin, dass sich die Anhänger einer Auffassung immer auch polemisch auf die Auffassung der anderen Gruppe beziehen. Die Tagung thematisiert Verschwörungstheorien in slawischen Literaturen und Kulturen in Geschichte und Gegenwart und berücksichtigt kulturgeschichtliche und narratologische Aspekte. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf den Repräsentationen von Verschwörungen und Verschwörungstheorien, damit die Diskussion vorrangig über Texte (und nicht über die Welt) geführt werden kann.

    Political education has been a general teaching principle in Austria since 1978, that is, an educational and developmental task, which is the responsibility of the teachers of all school subjects and grades. The lecture series will show ways in which democracy education can work in different subjects, so that student teachers and educators have different perspectives on the same fundamental challenge.
    The workshop aims to examine the musicality of the body and, vice versa, the corporeality of music from a choreographic perspective. This approach corresponds with the extension of the concept of music, as well as the questioning of performance traditions in the context of New Music, which also puts a stronger emphasis on the body.
    The relatively young democracy of Poland, whose political climate has intensified considerably since the last elections, is also moving increasingly to the fore. Politically critical leaders of representative cultural organisations have been, and continue to be, replaced by the new administration, while independent creative artists appear to be able to find niches that so far or already live outside the country.
    The conference will take place from 29 November – 1 December, 2018, at the Unipark Nonntal.
    On 6 December, 2018, the University of Salzburg will host the WTZ Training Day on the subject of Kommunikation, Dissemination und Verbreitung in H2020 projects.
