Project: “Knowledge Exchange and Academic Cultures in the Humanities: Europe and the Black Sea Region, late XVIII – XXI Centuries”
The ideas of the European Enlightenment gave strong impulses to the female education.
Educated women became important figures at that time finding their places in the cultures of knowledge as well as in the knowledge transfer. One of the main aims of the exhibition is to overcome the androcentric perspective toward the transfer of knowledge and to focus the attention to the contribution of Black sea region’s women to this process revealing the innovative moments in this contributions. The various cultural and religious traditions in the region, the political dynamics, the national building process, the different ways of cultural communication intersected in this process.
