Seminar combines presentation of problems with discussions supported by individual reading. Seminar is offered to BA and MA students of history in both semesters as an introduction to principal issues of modernisation focussing on innovations, cultural transfers and resistances. History students are mostly coming for two semesters to prepare their MA or look for an interesting research topic, and the seminar is designed to support these aims. It is focused on European history, mainly on European peripheries, with particular interest in East Central Europe, which is provisionally defined as a region east of Germany and west of Russia, and north of the Danube up to the Baltic see. Southeastern Europe is generally coterminous with Balkans. One of the goals of the seminar is to open the research field to BA students and to give support to MA students to their individual research.

Seminar in both semesters combines several types of activities: 1.) Lectures on issues in focus, 2.) Lectures offered by guests focussed on their research with discussions supported by individual reading, 3.) Presentation of results of individual research started in the first semester, 4.) Excursions.
Seminar in the first semester will focus on introduction of issues of research, and of comparative approach to analysis and interpretation of history.
Seminar in the second semester follows two paths. First it will offer students in their second semester space for presentation of the issues of their research interests and second it will focus on the landscape of current research issues of Czech, Central European and International historiography.
