The Eastern European History and the Russian Studies PhD Programs at the Department of East European History and the Department of Russian Studies of Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, invite participants to an international PhD student conference on East European History to be held October 18-19, 2018. The conference will examine the role of historiography in the regime changes of the 20th century. The conference seeks to employ historiography to examine all aspects of the East European regime changes – its practice, interpretation, and role in shaping political discourse, ethics, and identity.

Topics that the conference seeks to address include but are not limited to:

  • revolutions in Russia and Eastern Europe, soviet republics
  • authoritarian systems, dictatorships that came into being by reason of the world
  • economic crisis and the German expansion
  • the ‘export’ of state-socialism to Eastern Europe (1945-49)
  • workers’ self-management in the region
  • seeking the ‘tertium datur’ (third way) 1968
  • regime changes and Western Europe – the movements of ‘68, the oil price shock, the 3rd industrial revolution
  • Solidarność
  • 1989 - the end of state socialism
  • the semi-periphery and the centre after the collapse of the Soviet Union
  • reforms from above

Presented papers are planned to be published in a collection due in the spring of 2019.
