VIDIN AT DANUBE UNIVERSITY


Both groups of scientists from Bulgaria and Germany and political figures
with the mayor of the city of Vidin Dr. Ivan Tsenov have been discussing
the possibility to establish the Vidin Higher School as a main body of a
future Vidin at Danube University.

Initially the School will begin with one Faculty of Social Science with one
Department of Social Studies.

We plan the Vidin University to offer a unique university education that is
dedicated to:

  Liberal arts and sciences and their ability to provide students with
skills and knowledge relevant to contemporary issues and concerns;

 A problem centered, interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research;

 A multitude of programs that combine the liberal arts with applied
professional and occupational programs that further the vocations of our
students;

 And a knit community of students, faculty and staff that promotes energy
and enthusiasm and positive relations with local community that supports us.

The international cooperation should be one of the most important features
of the Vidin University. Our effort is to create a multi-cultural and multi-
disciplinary research and teaching environment that would attract a number
of visiting scholars and lecturers as well as students from many parts of
Europe.

 Specific research areas:
i) Small town development; rural gender issues; agricultural
reconstruction; heritage and tourism; youth and ageing in rural areas;
rural economic restructuring; rural households in transition; health and
poverty with nursing and social cares; rural labor market participation.

ii) The impact of the great river to its surroundings: environmental
and social problems.

iii) Cultural studies and semiotics; folk studies in their historical
and social aspects; ethnic minorities aspects;

iv) History and philosophy of science and education: studies on the
history of science and education in the Danube region, in the Balkans and
especially of the Third Bulgarian Kingdom (1878-1946); cultural and
educational relationships between Bulgaria and Germany and Austria-
Hungarian empire; public understanding of science and what is the public
attitude towards scientific activity, scientists and technology; what is
pseudo-science  its role in the modern society.


These research topics do not seem to be strongly elaborated in the present
Bulgarian research and educational areas. Both the scientific results
expected and the very University will be of importance in recovering the
human capability of the whole region of Vidin and its vicinity.

CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

We would like to hear from people interested in contributing in the
following ways: i) as staff members; ii) as participants in joint
research/teaching; iii) as sponsors.

Any opinions and ideas are welcome.
