Popis Our contemporary experience of temporality has its roots at the turn of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, when modern modes of thought and the idea of historicity has emerged. The historicity of humankind cannot be accepted without answering the challenge of radical historicity of thought and human experience. In my paper, I would like to reinterpret the concept of historical consiousness in relation to the historical situation of those hundreds of thousands, mainly young perople who moved from Central Europe to work and live in the West. Do these young share narratives that concretise their historical consciousness? Do they work and live there merely just to work and live without any historical meanings connected to their own life? I propose to connect historical consiousness with the lived experience of home and to locate the meaning formation process within interpretive communities. Finally I will attenpt to show how does this historical consciousness expressing mode of living and working "abroad" relates to contemporary modes of biopolitical governmentality.
