Conference Announcement: Thirty Years since the Fall of Communism: Visual Narratives, Memory and Culture – Galați (Romania)

The conference is intended as a cultural forum for imparting knowledge and research on the textuality and representation of recent, lived history, from different yet interrelated angles:

  • History and Memory Studies 
  • Political Sciences 
  • Cultural Studies
  • Film Studies 
  • Literary criticism 
  • Philosophy
  • Sociology 
  • Cultural Anthropology, etc.

Without any claims to historical truth(s), we hereby invite individual contributions to an academic debate within the framework of an event that will hopefully shed some light on the way in which communism was culturally represented before and after 1989 in the former communist states and in the West.
