Poland 1989: Negotiations, (Re)Constructions, Interpretations

International Conference, October 23-25, 2019, Aleksander Brückner Center for Polish Studies, Halle (Saale)

The year 1989 and its consequences are the subject of heated debates in Poland. Nineteen eighty-nine evokes various linguistic and emotional associations, and also functions symbolically, as a social and political code. The international conference "Poland 1989: Negotiations, (Re)Constructions, Interpretations" takes the 30th anniversary as an occasion to address this phenomenon. It will examine
historical debates, representations in memory politics and culture, and past research. The focus of the conference is thus on the discursive analysis of the Polish transformation, which requires interdisciplinary approaches.
