The Clark’s Research and Academic Program, together with regional partners, organized this series of three travelling seminars in 2010 and 2011. The seminars were linked thematically as well as by the presence of a core group of participants. The discussion in each location, however, was influenced primarily by the particular intellectual, cultural, and political interests and issues of the specific region and its audiences. Discussions revolved around the extraordinary intellectual energies and innovations that mark the best of the East-Central European intellectual life and sought to continue the facilitation of open dialogue and contact between those working in the US and Western Europe with those in East-Central Europe. This initiative came to Williamstown in 2011, for a two-day workshop to continue the discussion. Additional support for this workshop series was provided by the Getty Foundation.
