Events and projects

A series of international multidisciplinary roundtable discussions on the fall of the USSR. Organised by CBEES in collaboration with Institute of Contemporary History

In December 1991, the Soviet Union ceased to exist, but its material and symbolic legacies still appear powerful enough to obliterate perspectives on the present and the future that has lost its utopian force.

Throughout the year 2021, CBEES arranges a series of roundtable discussions to make sense of this longue dureé of “afterness”. With its various definitions from various vantage points (as transition, transformation, trauma, post-Soviet, post-communist, post-socialist, etc.), these thirty years still have not received proper critical reflection. These issues are relevant for the multidisciplinary area studies as these have been conducted at CBEES almost throughout the whole of the period in question.

The roundtable organisers have created international panels for discussion on questions ranging from economics and law to environment and urban space; from the European right to global art, political and gender activism; the role of contemporary literature and documentary film; theoretical issues of present-day regionalism and critical methodologies after the end of the post-Soviet.
