Comments Off on Conference Announcement: The 30th Annual International Conference on British and American Studies – Timișoara (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
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.
