Thirty years following the collapse of communist regimes in Europe and of the Soviet Union itself, competing, even conflicting accounts of history are a regular feature of nation building processes in Central and Eastern Europe. The resulting “memory wars” offer an opportunity to analyze the relationship between history and contemporary national identity building projects. This panel brings together four renowned scholars to explore how contested historical memory is impacting politics and nation building in the region and how past, present and future are tied to conflicts over memory politics.
- Maria Mälksoo (University of Copenhagen, Denmark)
- Nikolay Koposov (Emory University, U.S.)
- Laure Neumayer (University de Picardie Jules Verne, France)
Moderator: Peter Rutland (Wesleyan University, U.S.)
