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?

"Every day people perform dozens of rituals. These range from religious rituals to the rituals of everyday life, from the rituals of life roles to the rituals of each profession, from the rituals of politics and the judicial system to the rituals of business or home life. Even animals perform rituals" (Richard Schechner, Performance Studies: An Introduction 3rd ed. 52).

In the preface to Borderlands, Gloria Anzaldúa declares: "I am a border woman." As simple as it sounds, this statement suggests the individual's agency in the social and cultural production of personal identity as it boldly rejects to acknowledge the power of the state in the process.

The Other 1916 Conference

Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology
June 3rd 2016

Call for Papers

The years 1916-1922 saw the nascent Irish nation take shape between the Easter Rising and the birth of the Irish Free State. The same years also function as a crucible for literary and artistic modernism, in which the relatively lean publication year of 1916 helps forge the explosion of publishing activity associated with modernism's annus mirabilis, 1922. This conference seeks to re-evaluate narratives of 1916 within each of these contexts, with a particular focus on what has often been occluded from each of these narratives.
