The 2nd Ostrava Onomastic Meeting EVENT on Place Names as a Mirror of Political Developments in Modern European Society 1848–2018
The Department of Czech Language at the Faculty of Arts, University of Ostrava,
the Historical Geography Research Centre, Prague,
the Institute of the Czech Language at the Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague,
the conference committee, and the local organizing committee have the honor of inviting you to take part in the 2nd Ostrava Onomastic Meeting Event (2. ostravské onomastické setkání; OOME), which will be held in Ostrava, Czech Republic, from April 23 to April 25, 2018. The first OOME conference was held in October 2015, and the book Toponyma – kulturní dědictví a paměť míst (Toponymy – Cultural Heritage and Place Memory, ed. Jaroslav David; abstracts available here) was published in September 2016. The first OOME conference in Ostrava focused on place names as a part of cultural heritage and local history, and the success of this event inspired us to organize the second OOME conference, which will be held in 2018.
The conference will take place in Ostrava, a city situated at the crossroads of three countries – Czechia, Slovakia and Poland. It will focus on place names against the background of political developments in modern European (predominantly Central European) society in the period 1848–2018.
