at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences

 

*This is not a full translation but a synthesis of the document. There are missing explanatory parts from the text as well as the Introduction of the letter.

The letter addressed to the Minister of Education and Science concerns the recently accepted criteria of evaluation of the scientific outputs in the field of Humanities. The outlined concerns and proposed solutions are based on the following documents:

  • Criteria of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences for the ‘’factors for evaluation of research activity’’
  • The Ministry of Education and Science’s ‘‘Criteria and indicators for evaluation of research activity of the organisations’’ taken from the Handbook for monitoring and evaluation of research activity of the higher education institutions and scientific organisations
  • The overall activity of the Fund ‘‘Scientific Research’’

The Institute expresses concern of the omnipresent application of a predominantly Anglo-Saxon based criteria, argued to be more applicable for scientific disciplines rather than for Humanities research on a regional level.

плакат Караманолакис 2019 АААWe have the pleasure to invite you to the lecture of the Associate Professor at the University of Athens Vangelis Karamanolakis:

Unwanted past. The Security files on citizens and their destruction in Greece at the end of the Cold War (1989).

In 1989, the first and sole Greek government which houses representatives from both Right-wing and Left-wing parties, burned to ashes 17 500 000 dossier files concerning the political loyalty and reliability of citizens. The police have been keeping those files since the Interwar period. The lecture will focus on the interlink between the dossier files with the past Greek Civil War and the resistance of the academically engaged historical community from 1989 to such maltreatment of this important part of the country’s heritage.

This lecture is part of the events’ cycle ‘Each Second Tuesday’ and will take place on the April 9, 2019 at 16h00 at the Institute of Balkan Studies, located at Moskovska Street No. 45.
