The 33th assembly of the HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION OF SLOVENIA,
entitled "Mythical and Stereotypic in the Slovenian View on History", was held in Kranj, 19th - 21th oktober 2006.
The main theme of the assembly was to point out to some Mythical and stereotypic conceptions, which influence(d) the scientific perception of Slovenian history. The impulse given, was about "cleaning in front of our noses first". Simultaneously it was indicated how myths can also be educational and not necessary false historycal perceptions.
Regretfully, for the scientific world, an unussual thing happened - there was no discussion after the first, very important section of speeches (properly readings). Supposedly the reason was a decision made by the programme committee. However it was reading their extensive works, that made the situation even worse for them as respected lecturers. What a pitty!
There is also the miscellany which was published worth mentioning. It contains also an interesting contribution by dr. Andrej Hozjan, entitled "Actualisation of the mythical and stereotypic on the internet", which mentioned two Slovenian patriotic organisations, explicitly writing about the Hervardi association, however our webside remains unmentioned. The miscellany (32th Vol. of ZgodovinskI časopis) is available for 3000 sit/12.50 €.
A discussion was initiated by us thrugh e-mail. Read ...
