Historians’ Book Launch at the University of Padua, Italy

The volume From Periphery to Centre. The Image of Europe at the Eastern Border of Europe published under the aegis of the Romanian Academy, the Center for Transylvanian Studies and coordinated by Prof. Sorin Şipoş, Prof. Gabriel Moisa, Prof. Dan Octavian Cepraga, Prof. Mircea Brie and Prof. Teodor Mateoc was launched on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at the University of Padua. The book is the result of an international conference held in Oradea in 2013 and co-organized by the University of Oradea, University of Padua and the State University of Moldova and is part of the Jean Monnet project 2892-2012 led by Prof. Sorin Şipoş.

The book launch generated interesting discussions circumscribed to the volume’s theme, focusing on issues related to border topic, concepts of periphery and center, of the image of the other and to the misuse of the history by the political factor. The big problem assumed by European projects consisted in identifying and assuming the common values ​​and traditions defining Europe. Consequently, the interrogations of the European thinkers regarding the concept of Europe and the perception of its Eastern border were numerous. What is Europe? What are Europe’s eastern borders? Is there an overlap between geographical, political, cultural and religious borders of Europe? And, equally important, the relation between center and periphery, where does the center end and where does the periphery start and what phenomena occur in the peripheries of two centers. Finally, in these equations we must insert a new concept, namely the image, that way Europe, the border, the center and the periphery are conceptualized, perceived by contemporary society.

We believe that this critical perspective can offer interesting interpretative directions in the analysis of the concept of Europe, the concept of the border, the image of “the other”, the foreigner, the ratio between center and periphery, which are also chapters in this volume.

 Book Launch at the University of Padua
A delegation from the University of Oradea, including Prof. Sorin Şipoş, Assoc. Prof. Gabriel Moisa, Lect. Florin Sfrengeu will attend the launching of the book From Periphery to Centre. The Image of Europe at the Eastern Border of Europe on Wednesday, 3 June, 2015, at 4.30 p.m. at the Universita degli Studi di Padova in Italy.

The volume was edited by Prof. Sorin Şipoş, Assoc. Prof. Gabriel Moisa, Prof. Dan Octavian Cepraga, Prof. Mircea Brie, Prof. Teodor Mateoc and the Romanian Academy through the Center for Transylvanian Studies, Cluj-Napoca and it was part of a Jean Monnet project 292-2012 led by Prof. Sorin Şipoş.

The volume will be presented by Prof. Roberto Scagno and Prof. Dan Cepraga from the University of Padua.

Historians Launch the Volume From Periphery to the Centre. The Image of Europe at the Eastern Border of Europe at UO

The volume From Periphery to Centre. The Image of Europe at the Eastern Border of Europe was launched on Thursday, July 16, 2015 at the University of Oradea. The book was published under the aegis of the Romanian Academy and the Center for Transylvanian Studies, being coordinated by Prof. Sorin Şipoş, Prof. Gabriel Moisa, Prof. Dan Octavian Cepraga, Prof. Mircea Brie and Prof. Teodor Mateoc. The book coagulated the papers delivered in 2013, in Oradea at an international conference organized by the University of Oradea, University of Padua and the State University of Moldova and was part of the Jean Monnet project 2892-2012, coordinated by Prof. Sorin Şipoş.

The event was attended by professors and students of the University of Oradea, as well as by Prof. Eugen Macocian, vice-rector responsible for research management and international relations at the University of Oradea, Prof. Ioan Horga, dean of the Faculty of History, International Relations, Political Science and Communication, representatives of local authorities, as well as authors and coordinators of this volume, Prof. Sorin Şipoş, Prof. Gabriel Moisa, Prof. Teodor Mateoc, Prof. Mircea Brie and the Director of the Department of History, Lect. Florin Sfrengeu, who also chaired the event.

The book launch generated discussions on issues related to the theme of the border, the concepts of periphery and center, of European identity and image of the other, and the misuse of history by the political factor and in this respect one of the notable achievements of this interdisciplinary approach was the fact that it managed to demystify by dismantling false assumptions. The volume starts from an interrogative prerequisite, aiming at identifying and assuming common European values ​​and traditions while trying to answer questions such as: What is Europe? What is Europe’s eastern border? Is there an overlap between geographical, political, cultural and religious borders of Europe? And, equally important, what is the relation between center and periphery, where does the center end and where does the periphery begin and what phenomena occur in the peripheries of two centers? What is the image, the manner, the way in which Europe, the border, the center and the periphery are viewed, perceived by contemporary people?
