На пути к синхронизации истории Западной и Восточной Европы, или Особенности "калужского стиля"
So, what are the stylistic features of all these Kaluga Conferences? First of all, it is a wider historical context in looking at problems and events. All these forums are meeting places for experts on medieval Russian history with home-based and foreign historians who deal with Western Middle Ages and the Early Modern period. Besides, the number of our colleagues from abroad is growing with every new conference. The panels are always arranged according to a thematic rather than regional principle. Crucially, the participants should be given a chance not only to collate their own subject matter with data from other regions, but also to appreciate the work of their colleagues who specialise on other countries of the same period, to get acquainted with their source base, the questions posed to the sources, and the historiographic situation as a whole.
