About

Since 2012, Telciu, a village in Bistrița-Năsăud County, has been hosting the annual Telciu Summer Conferences supported by the local authorities, focusing on issues in the social sciences and humanities. In 2016 the conferences became part of the newly-established Center for the Study of Modernity and the Rural World.

The conference is based on an interdisciplinary approach, bringing together scholars and activists from a large array of domains such as history, sociology, literary studies, philosophy, political economy, environmental studies and anthropology, themselves enthusiasts of dialogues between diverse fields, theories, and methodologies.

Because we believe that the production and dissemination of knowledge must be kept as far away as possible from a market and profit oriented logic, attendance to the conference is free for both presenters and visitors.
