Malinowskis Children: East Central European Betweenness and Twentieth-Century Social Science
May 16, 2014 | 12pm to 6pm
The Heyman Center, Second Floor Common Room

This one-day workshop positions Eastern and Central Europe as a critical field for global modern knowledge by looking at the betweenness of East Central European intellectuals and their contributions to the history of social science in the twentieth century. Betweenness is here understood in

both regional terms that is, East Central Europes historic position as a culturally and developmentally ambiguous periphery of the Westand biographical ones, including experiences of exile, dislocation, and/or statelessness. As an analytic category, betweenness forges transnational histories among regions and countries (such as Israel or India) that based their global position and intellectual production on their liminality. For further information regarding this event, please contact Violeta Tutunik by sending email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
