EUROlog symposium on 26th and 27th of April 2012

Eurolog stands for the ‘European Dialogue about Ancient Civilisations’ and shall be a tool for the understanding of foreign cultures in the past and present and is granted by the EU.

In April 2012 EUROlog expanded the ‘European Dialogue about Ancient Civilsations’ to North-Africa. In Tunesia the Eurolog team of the Baden State Museum (Karlsruhe) with the Goethe Institute Tunis and Prof. Taher Ghalia organized at the Musée National du Bardo in Tunis an international expert symposium.

Museum professionals and scholars in the fields of archeology, sociology and education attended themselves in lectures, discussions and field trips to the theme of intercultural exchange within ancient and modern societies.

The results of the symposium flow into the realization of the Eurolog-mediation method. It shall encourage and enable a wide audience to take up a different – perhaps unusual – view on other cultures. It will get across that today’s cultural background of a country is often formed with elements and influences of different cultures.

The lectures of the experts can be downloaded for free in PDF format on the right handside.
