Science and research

The Department of History is involved in several significant projects in the area of regional  and more expanded history.

Fontes Nissae – Prameny Nisy (Sources of Nisa) is a periodical and has been published since 2000. The Department of History is the main owner of publishing rights and cooperates with State regional archives in Liberec and Jablonec nad Nisou and Reasearch Library in Liberec.

The principal content of its individual volumes is formed by studies and materials from the area of regional history in a wide and chronological scope. Reports about the regional institutions and literature are also included.

The seminar Relations between Czech and Slovak has been regularly held since 1991 and takes place every August. It represents the only forum in the Czech Republic that keeps regular long-term contacts with Slovak historians and educators from different types of schools.

The Department of History regularly organizes specialized public lectures provided by the department’s lecturers and historians from various Czech institutions. The venues of these lectures are usually Research Library in Liberec or University Library in Voroněžská  street.

During the academic year 2008/09, the lectures took place in three cycles and presented “Important events of the twentieth century” with the main focus on political, economical and religious problems of the world and Europe in the 20th century. The first cycle called “Young historians” included public speeches of graduates of the Department of History FP TUL and PH.D. students who continue their research about mainly political history of the 20th century in various historical departments in the Czech Republic. The third cycle was dedicated to the topic of “History Lived” focused on meetings with survivors of political events that influenced the whole Czech 20th century society. These discussions mostly presented different forms of persecution through the testimony of their victims and its different reasons – political, racial, and religious or others.

This year’s programme is available on the web pages of the Department of History.
