“Crises as catharsis” – scientific conference

The Regional Historical Museum – Pleven, together with the “History” Faculty of “St. Kliment Ohridski” Sofia University, are committed to the ambitious task of organizing and conducting a scientific forum on “Crises as catharsis”. The aim of the conference is to provide a platform for young and established scientists to share observations, reflections and research on the political, economic, social and cultural effects and consequences of situations with a high degree of extremity in historical perspective. Crisis situations are an integral part of historical development. For some, they are the basis of human cultivation and evolution. In Arnold Toynbee’s great narrative, crisis responses (in the form of challenges) lead to change and progress.

The conference will be held in Pleven from 15 to 16 October 2021. The opening will be on October 15 from 02:00 p.m. in hotel “Balkan”, meeting room, floor 2. In the next day the scientific forum will continue from 09:00 a.m. in the Regional Historical Museum – Pleven.

The conference materials will be published in a separate collection.
