Call for papers: "Poland 1989: Negotiations, (Re)Constructions, Interpretations"

International conference in cooperation with the European Solidarity Centre in Gdańsk, 23th-25th October 2019 in Halle

 

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.

You can download the call for papers as PDF in German and in English.

Deadline for abstracts: 30th March 2019
