During my stay at IWM, I was working hard on my dissertation project on the Christin Democratic ideology during the Cold War, and I presented its results comprised in an article tentatively titled “Re-inventing the Christian Democratic Discourse in Czechoslovakia (1968-1993): Christian Europeanism confronts Communist Nationalism” at the CEU Graduate Conference and IWM Junior Fellows conference.
I finished and submitted my article on Michel Foucault’s concept of confession titled “Sustaining Significance of Confessional Form: Taking Foucault to Attitudinal Research”.
During my stay, I was accepted for a workshop organised by European University Institute, „European integration in historical and contemporary perspective: New approaches and findings.“
Thanks to the IWM’s network I built ties with academics across Europe and the US.
Further, during my stay at the Institute I gave several lectures at Charles University on the history of political thought.
