Central & Eastern Europe's cultural visibility has increased since the 1989 Fall of the Berlin Wall and with Romanian-born German writer Herta Müller's 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature. In light of this new visibility, how are Central/Eastern European cultures and history being taught, both within and outside the region? What has changed in the way these countries (past and present) contribute to the understanding of the cultural configuration of the region or the continent? How and what should educators include in various curricula? How do we teach the communist period to new generations and/or to the West and the rest of the world?
