The Croatian, Serbian and Slovene Department of Jagiellonian University is
organizing an international  conference

Josip Juraj Strossmayer:

Jugoslavism, Ecumenism, Europe

which will take place in Krakow, Poland April 28-30. 2005. The conference
aims to put a multidimensional light on one of the outstanding, though
variously estimated, figures of Croatian culture in the 19th century.
Strossmayer, who died in May 1905. – was the Catholic bishop of Djakovo in
Slavonia, on the Croatian border between the East and the West, and was
respected and honoured by his Orthodox neighbours as a predecessor of
contemporary ecumenism. He was also a politician and outstanding patron of
culture, the originator of the idea of a Croatian Tuscany, according to
which all the South Slavs should be integrated on the basis of cultural
co-operation. This idea was an essential alternative to projects for a
Greater Croatia and Greater Serbia. It was meant to be a chance for
political emancipation of the nations of the region and to assure them a
suitable place among all the European nations.

The official language of the conference is Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian; plenary
sessions are planned. There is no conference fee, all expenses for
accommodations (between April 27th and 30th) are covered by the organizers.
Post-conference proceedings will be published as a book.

Each presentation should not exceed 20 minutes, as one of the most important
points of the gathering will be a discussion about the Bishop himself and
his accomplishments (portions of the discussions will also be published).
