1989 after 1989: representing revolution in a globalised world

“Although ‘1989’ quickly became understood as a watershed moment, both elite and social interpretations of its meaning and relevance are diverse,” Professor Mark said. “The 1989 settlements continue to be contested in Eastern Europe itself, as most recently evidenced in the Bulgarian protests last winter. We will consider the impact of the collapse of European state socialism, examining the ways in which liberal readings of its demise have become an important part of Western identity, and how its fall has been addressed in places where state socialism survived, such as China or Cuba.”

The study is recruiting postdoctoral fellows and PhD students: see Exeter’s website for details.
