History, Memory and Politics in Central and Eastern Europe

Lecture series organised by Profs. Alexander Etkind, Pieter M. Judson and Pavel Kolář

Established in 2016, this lecture series is a venue to explore the key issues in current debates on the history of central and eastern Europe. Without downplaying the region’s specificities, the series aims at bringing the history of the formerly socialist countries into the broader framework of European and global history. We invite guest speakers from various academic backgrounds and with diverse geographical foci to cover a wide range of themes and approaches that include political, social, economic, cultural or intellectual history. Providing a platform for debate and dialogue, the series also strives to unravel the significance of history in the public sphere.
