Saturday, November 1, 2003. Minsk, Belarus (At the Philological Faculty of Belarusian State University) 9:00 ­ 9:30 Welcome statements ­ Vice-rector of BSU Uladzimir Astapenka, Dean of the Philological Faculty Ivan Rovda, and Director of the ACLS Humanities Program Andrzej Tymowski 9:30 ­ 9:45 Website presentation ­ Olga Bukhina 9:45 ­ 10:45 Plenary session Studying cultural innovation in the borderlands: Perspectives from Belarus, Estonia, and Ukraine ­ Ihar Babkau, Ljubov Kiseleva, Yaroslav Hrytsak

The designations "peripheral" or "provincial" connote not only distance from centers of Great Culture, but also backwardness and sluggishness. However, it can be argued that quite the opposite is true ­ people and places located far from cultural and political capitals experience conditions that stimulate and enable innovation. Borderlands exist at the point of intersection of distant and local cultures; they provide a vantage point outside the main stream from which to observe and assess its flow; they are home to communities that understand "world-languages" but are also able to communicate in languages that Great Cultures cannot understand; they provide inspiration to gifted individuals whose works ­ in some cases ­ become cultural landmarks (monuments). Three speakers will discuss the experience of studying the multicultural creativity of borderlands from their locations in three cities "on the margins." What are the special problems in carrying out such study? The special opportunities? What can we expect in the future?
