9 лютого 2018 р. в приміщенні Київського центру Українського католицького університету відбудеться відкрита дискусія «Патріарх Йосиф Сліпий: бути собою!» з нагоди завершення Ювілейного року вшанування 125-ліття Ісповідника віри та колишнього предстоятеля УГКЦ. Промовцями на цьому публічному дискусійному форумі виступлять Блаженніший Святослав Шевчук, владики Ігор Ісіченко та Борис Ґудзяк, а також співпрацівники УКУ – проректор Мирослав Маринович, професор Оксана Міхеєва та докторант Анатолій Бабинський. Предметом обговорення стануть дві ключові теми: як нам сьогодні в Україні та в глобальному контексті відповідати на сучасні виклики, щоб «бути Церквою» та «бути Народом», послуговуючись досвідом і прикладом Великого Патріарха.

Цей симпозіум вінчатиме ширшу програму наукового відзначення ювілею, яку Інститут історії Церкви УКУ упродовж року проводив з благословення Синоду єпископів УГКЦ. Задля того, аби популяризувати постать цього видатного мужа Церкви і провідника Народу відбулася ціла низка заходів: круглий стіл у Києві під назвою «Патріарх Йосиф Сліпий: знайомий і незнаний», виїзні сесії в Полтаві, Харкові, Запоріжжі, Ужгороді, Чернівцях, Одесі, Вінниці; науково-практична конференція для вихованців семінарій у Львові про вклад патріарха у розвиток богословської освіти й науки, літня школа в Римі про міжнародні еклезіальні та політичні аспекти його діяльності, наукові семінари в Лювені (Бельгія) та Заґребі (Хорватія). Також було підготовлено банерну фотовиставку, яка експонувалася в багатьох містах України та поза її межами. Матеріали виставки лягли в основу науково-популярного видання «Будьмо собою – життя та заповіт патріарха Йосифа Сліпого», яке побачило світ у Видавництві УКУ та було презентоване й отримало відзнаку Львівського форуму видавців.

Завершаться урочистості з нагоди Ювілейного року патріарха Йосифа Сліпого Архиєрейською Божественною Літургією і Панахидою в Патріаршому соборі Воскресіння Христового 18 лютого 2018 р.

For more information visit Call of Applictions page

Deadline for all applications:  February 11, 2018.

Convention theme: Image of the Self

This theme follows the previous convention’s “Image of the Other.”  We seek to examine the way states, societies, interest groups and social movements, as well as individuals, represent themselves to themselves and to others through manifold means including language, culture, literature, the politics of history, and politics as such.  Images of the self can be found, of course, not only in scholarship but also in popular writing, artistic expression, and in the public sphere.

How have some images given rise to stereotypes and instrumentalized narratives?  How have some others constituted resources for tolerance, mutual respect, and cooperation?  These issues appear in headlines worldwide, but they seem especially salient in Eastern Europe and Eurasia.

MAG invites proposals directly or indirectly addressing topics related to the “Image of the Self.”
