  • Celtic Pantheon(510 clicks)
    This page is intended as a reference guide for students of Celtic mythology. When completed, it will hopefully be a compilation of all the known deities in the various national mythologies of the early Celtic peoples. The format will consist of a Name, the culture that divinity arose out of, and a description of the divinity. The description will include areas of authority, attributes, images, appearance, and selected comments or stories which might help characterize the divinity better. As I implied above, this is an ongoing work which, at the moment, is incomplete. I most certainly solicit comments and contributions; if you have additional information for me (or complaints, for that matter), I ask only that you try to supply documentation in support of what you have to say.

    The European Union is set up with the aim of ending the frequent and bloody wars between neighbours, which culminated in the Second World War. As of 1950, the European Coal and Steel Community begins to unite European countries economically and politically in order to secure lasting peace. The six founders are Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. The 1950s are dominated by a cold war between east and west. Protests in Hungary against the Communist regime are put down by Soviet tanks in 1956; while the following year, 1957, the Soviet Union takes the lead in the space race, when it launches the first man-made space satellite, Sputnik 1. Also in 1957, the Treaty of Rome creates the European Economic Community (EEC), or ‘Common Market’.

The period will thus be viewed neither in terms of historical inevitability nor as a procession of great men, but rather through the lens of the complex interrelations between demographic change, political revolution, and cultural development. Textbook accounts will be accompanied by the study of exemplary works of art, literature, and cinema. URL:

  • Open Society Archives(430 clicks)
    The Open Society Archives (OSA) at Central European University is an archival laboratory. While actively collecting, preserving, and making openly accessible documents related to recent history and human rights, we continue to experiment with new ways to contextualize primary sources, developing innovative tools to explore, represent, or bridge traditional archival collections in a digital environment. Our approach to acquisition is increasingly proactive and inclusive, and we actively seek out non-traditional material, material previously marginalized based on its content, social origin, or form. At OSA Archivum, professional archival work is integrated with public programs, and our Galeria Centralis serves as the focal point of exhibitions, performances, film screenings, lectures, and seminars. Through all of these endeavors, we advocate: open access and transparency in public administration; equal rights to information; the ethical use of private data; open formats and open standards; and broad access to cultural heritage.

    The problems of interethnic relations in Central and Eastern Europe and the former USSR are inseparable from the larger tapestry of regional security issues. We certainly know from the Yugoslav and Chechen disasters, if we did not know before, that interethnic tensions, magnified by political rivalries, can escalate into hostilities that not only devastate the combatants and disrupt their neighbors but also do serious damage to intra-European interests and strain the Euro-Atlantic alliance. An approach that takes these dimensions into account is imperative for anyone trying to deal with the political dynamics and consequences of interethnic rivalries.
