The 9th edition of the Genealogies of Memory conference is dedicated to memory of relatively recent, yet turbulent period in the history of Central and Eastern Europe: the post-1989 economic transformations. 30 years after the initiation of the changes, memory scholars from across the continent will gather to analyze the memory sedimentation of characteristic – and often problematic – phenomena of the 1990s.

Topics for discussion include, among others, the key narratives on the period in question, their contested and consensual dimensions, cultural representations and current echoes.

Keynote lectures will be given by Johanna Bockman, Thomas Lindenberger, Adam Mrozowicki and Martin Schulze Wessel.


Please note that while attendance is free, prior registration is required (the registration has now been closed).
