Welcome to the HDVA, the Humanistic Discourse Virtual Anthology, a multi- and interdisciplinary platform covering international research with main focus on (Central and Eastern) Europe!


The AAVA has two main goals:


The first is to provide inspiration to people from different academic disciplines as they explore avenues for their own research.

The second is to encourage rational public discourse, humanistic dialogue and support civil society.


The development of the HDVA is the outcome of different FEWD activities in philosophical and ethical humanistic discourse since 2001

The inter- and multi-disciplinary HDVA means that there is a strong focus on humanistic discourses in the context of the social sciences and humanities. The HDVA will also include research from the disciplines of law, economics, statistics and theology. In this connection, the very well-established social scientific research field of social movements is central to the HDVA. For example, already nearly twenty handbooks and anthologies focus on social movements - https://fewd.univie.ac.at/humanism/sources/handbooks-social-movements/  


The content of the HDVA is organized at the moment by country. Some pertinent country analyses are already listed on the HDVA sources page - https://fewd.univie.ac.at/humanism/sources/   
Special thanks are due to the CEEOL team - https://fewd.univie.ac.at/humanism/cee/ceeol/

Additionally, a HDVA thesaurus is under development. 


 The FEWD is still looking for national / regional coordinators and contributors.

HDVA will establish calls for papers in close cooperation with national research societies, associations and / or with relevant journals, see https://fewd.univie.ac.at/humanism/sources/

The activity of the
HDVA will also rely on basic financial support through the stable revenue of the Lengauer Rupert und Karoline Foundation – LRKF -

And last but not least, the HDVA is easy to reach via  www.HumanisminEurope.eu or directly via the FEWD animal advocacy section https://fewd.univie.ac.at/humanism
