COST Action CA19129 - Decolonising Development: Research, Teaching and Practice

COST Action CA19129 - Dekolonizačný vývoj: Výskum, výučba a prax

Duration: 9.9.2020 - 8.9.2024
Program: COST
Project leader: Mgr. Belák Andrej PhD.
Annotation:The Action DecolDEV takes on the challenge to reconstruct the concept and practice of development after its deconstruction. It aims for a resetting and diversification of the actors, structures, institutions and spaces in which knowledge about and for development is produced, shared, contested and put into practice. The Action will progress beyond the state-of-the-art through exploring and formulating alternatives in three areas: Research, Teaching and Practice.

COST Action CA20105 - Slow Memory: Transformative Practices for Times of Uneven and Accelerating Change

COST Action CA20105 - Pomalá pamäť: Transformačné praktiky v časoch nerovnomerných a zrýchľujúcich sa zmien

Duration: 14.10.2021 - 13.10.2025
Program: COST
Project leader: PhDr. Vrzgulová Monika CSc.
Annotation:We are living in times of deep contradictions. While our world accelerates and grows smaller through superfast digital networks, it is also marked by widening socio-economic disparities. We face viral pandemics, rapid species extinction, increased automation of work, quick fixes for mental health, political upheavals and displacements of old certainties. Adaptation and resilience to these challenges must draw on past experiences and cultural resources – this can only happen if we slow down and take time to remember well. This Action addresses the need for increased interdisciplinarity in our understanding of how societies confront their past to contend with environmental, economic and social changes brought on by sudden events and by slow and creeping transformations. The future of peace, prosperity, politics, work and climate will depend upon how we remember socio-cultural and political changes. Transformative practices of remembrance – as objects of study and as critical interventions – will be shared collaboratively across Arts and Sciences in order to reveal the ways in which humans confront large-scale processes of change. This Action will uniquely focus the attention of scholars, policymakers and cultural professionals on alternative paths to build resilience in the face of contemporary rapid-response culture. Through transnational and interdisciplinary discussions, we will address urgency, emergency, crisis and acceleration by drawing together the ‘multi-sited’, ‘eventless’ and slow-moving phenomena that can best be studied by ‘slowing down’ our research methods, to afford capacity building, knowledge generation and impact activities. Inspired by ‘slow science’ (Stengers 2018), we seek an alternative kind of social remembering.

COST Action CA20107 - Connecting Theory and Practical Issues of Migration and Religious Diversity

COST Action CA20107 - Teória prepojenia a praktické otázky migrácie a náboženskej diverzity

Duration: 21.10.2021 - 20.10.2025
Program: COST
Project leader: Mgr. Škobla Daniel PhD.
Annotation:“Connecting Theory and Practical Issues of Migration and Religious Diversity” (COREnet) is an interdisciplinary network that aims at knowledge production, knowledge exchange and capacity building across Europe in the intersection of migration and religious diversity with a particular emphasis on bottom-up research. The background of the network is the pressing social situation that is characterised by the fact that migrants and Syrian war refugees coming to Europe, have become one of the major political issues and social challenges during the past years. Research, capacity building and exchange are important tools to analyse what lies behind these challenges and possible solutions. The network aims thus to contribute to overcoming divisions within and across European countries with the help of innovative approach that would add to existing social scientific knowledge on migration and religious diversity the study of religions and theological insights explaining the narratives of migrants and refugees. Drawing in researchers from all stages of their careers, and across different European countries, training a new generation of interdisciplinary action researchers capable of connecting study of religions and theology and the social sciences, and working that into action through processes of co-production. This network brings the bridging of knowledge with stakeholders – governmental, non-governmental and media organizations working in the field of diversity management on the local and national levels.

More specifically, however, it will tackle this curriculum from the perspective of cultural heritage listed in the tools of the UNESCO Conventions 1972 and 2003. The project will strongly build on the global peaceful narrative of UNESCO and on the narrative of the European Union, especially its common values. Project follows the research line within the Research conception of IESA SAS (2021-2025) focused on current forms of cultural heritage.
