    ?13th CONFERENCE ON BALTIC STUDIES IN EUROPE, GDANSK, JUNE 26-29, 2019

    The 13th Conference on Baltic Studies in Europe was held in Gdansk, Poland, on June 26-29, 2019, organized by the University of Gdansk in cooperation with the European Solidarity Center. Baltic Studies as a subject of humanities and social sciences emerged first in Northern America (since тисячу дев'ятсот шістьдесят вісім organized by the «Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies» in Northern America), then followed by a series of Baltic Conferences in Scandinavia until 1991. Since 1995 , bi-annual Conferences on Baltic Studies in Europe alternate with the AABS Baltic Studies Conferences. In the course of time the meaning of «Baltic» broadened from an exile perspective and a focus on the territory of the three Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania or the linguistic Baltic region towards a broader notion of the Baltic Sea Region. This was also the case with the 2019 Conference on Baltic Studies, which for the first time was held in Poland. Gdansk in particular embodies the Polish connections to the Baltic on various levels throughout its history: as a medieval and early-modern economic hub, as a prism of the conflicts after the First World War, as the site where the Second World War was started, and as the place where the Solidarnosc movement started in 1980, which had a major impact on the peaceful revolutions from 1989 to тисяча дев'ятсот дев'яносто одна and thus also on the new political shape of the Baltic Sea region.

    The conference programme under the heading «Baltic Solidarity» comprised more than 150 presentations in 50 panels and roundtables. The topics of the presentations were divided in three conference sections: «History and Memory», «Media, Language and Arts», and «Politics and Society». Besides, three special streams comprised panels on: the Baltic Region in 1918-1921 (organized by Mart Kuldkepp, London); Baltic national song and dance traditions 150 (remembering the 150th anniversary of the first Estonian song festival, organized by Guntis Smidchens, Seattle); and Baltic Sea regional security (organized by Olevs Nikers and Otto Tabuns, Riga).

    Similar to previous Baltic conferences, papers focusing on historical issues made up the largest conference section, and among them topics connected to 20th century history domi-nanted. Among the topics intensively discussed were the First World War and its aftermath with presentations among others by Tomas Balkelis (Vilnius) on the logic of violence in the Polish-Lithuanian conflict, Tim Buchen (Dresden) on settlement projects and military imaginations of agriculture in North Eastern Europe, Klaus Richter (Birmingham) on the erosion of norms of property ownership in Poland and the Baltics, Vasilijus Safronovas (Klaipeda) on the representation of the «national experience» of the First World War in Interwar Lithuania. Another major field referred to aspects of collective memory and of dealing with the soviet © J. Hackmann, 2019

    period as for instance by Eva-Clarita Pettai (Jena) on post-transitional justice thirty years after Latvia's re-independence, Linara Dovydaityte (Vilnius) on displaying the history of labour and industry in post-soviet museums, by Kirsti Joesalu and Ene Koresaar (Tartu) on the presentation of the soviet period at the «Museum of Occupations and Freedom» in Tallinn, and by Epp Annus (Tartu) on «vestigial Sovietness» in Estonia.

    Among those presentations that focused on issues of earlier Baltic history, two panels shall be mentioned, one on pre-modern Baltic history and one on historiography, collective memory and cultural identity, 1300-1700. Paper presented dealt with the role of family solidarity in the Livonian branch of the Teutonic Order (Dmitriy Weber, St. Petersburg); solidarity and Baltic German family politics in Livonia (Anja Wilhelmi, Luneburg); the image of Poland in late medieval and early-modern Prussian historiography (Adam Szweda, Torun), Poland as a «mirror of the self» in the historiography of the Teutonic Order (Grischa Ver-camer, Passau); the Prussian myth of origin as a political statement in 16th century Gdansk (Ansgar Holtmann, Berlin); and on how the Slavic ancestors of the Pomeranians became Germans in late medieval and early-modern myths of origins (Pawel Migdalski, Szczecin).

    The general programme of the conference comprised various book and project presentations, among them the Polish edition of Michael North's «The Baltic. A History », a source publication on Polish Livonia, and new publications on the First World War and its aftermath in the Baltic region. At the beginning of the conference, former Polish president Lech Walesa gave a welcome address which discussed the meaning and the legacy of Solidarnosc. A keynote talk by Pertti Joenniemi (Joensuu) and a final discussion with Basil Kerski, Kazi-mierz Musial, Krystyna Wroblewska (Gdansk) addressed the scholarly prospects of Baltic Sea regionalism.

    The next Conference on Baltic Studies in Europe will be held in Uppsala in 2021.
