Third Workshop of the «Spaces of Expectation» Research Project

Spaces of Expectation is a collaborative research project based at Södertörn University, Stockholm and Ca’ Foscari University, Venice. Its objective is comparative research on mental mapping, historical imagination, and political uses of historical narratives in the Baltic Sea and Mediterranean regions. The project is funded by the Foundation for Baltic and East European Studies (Östersjöstiftelsen).
Semantics of Space is the third public workshop organised by Spaces of Expectation. Earlier workshops concerned area studies and mental maps. The aim is to enhance the dialogue between project members and distinguished international scholars in the fields of history, political science, and other related disciplines.
