Post-Socialism: Hybridity, Continuity and Change

Start date: 25.06.2016

End date: 26.06.2016

Location: Novi Sad

Country: Serbia

The Department of Sociology of the University of Zurich and the Centre for Empirical Cultural Studies of South-East Europe announce a call for papers for the international conference

June 25th and 26th, 2016, Novi Sad, Serbia

The conference is organized as part of the project “Life-Strategies and Survival Strategies of Households and Individuals in South-East European Societies in the Times of Crisis”, carried out within the framework of the SCOPES program of the Swiss National Science Foundation.

A quarter of a century after the downfall of the socialist regimes in Eastern Europe, we are in a better position to observe the complex mixtures that the post-socialist societies are made of. If, at a time of euphoria over the fall of the Berlin Wall, the dominant neoliberal approach to “transition” disregarded specific social, cultural and historical factors which shaped these societies, it is precisely these factors that interest us.

Deadline for abstracts: 31 May 2016.
