Dear friends,

It is my pleasure to share with you a few thoughts about the Second Euroacademia Conference ‘Re-Inventing Eastern Europe’, in which I have participated recently. First and foremost I would like to thank the organizers, and shed a light on their amazing effort and competence in making the conference not only a wonderful academic experience, but also a stimulating and exciting space where participants exchanged knowledge, ideas and perspectives. Kudos! I also thank the participants who, with every paper presented and question(s) asked and answered, re-discovered and re-invented not only the fascinating Eastern Europe, but also the meanings of friendship and generosity, in the academic sense and not only. Thus, so many collaborations and friendships started in a rather cold Prague, but so warm within the conference’s perimeters! Thank you all. (Camelia Lenart, SUNY Albany, USA)
