Crisis: Interruptions, Reactions and Continuities in Central and Eastern Europe
The 11th International Postgraduate Conference on Central and Eastern Europe
The School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London
15-17 February 2012
Crises have been common in the history of Central and Eastern Europe. The term crisis implies that a particular order, whether financial, social or political is thrown into a state of flux. The resultant instability usually forces those affected to react to the disturbance and reassert a sense of equilibrium. By unravelling the operation of social and political mechanisms that are normally taken for granted, crises give rise to a number of questions: Were crises preceded by a generally accepted order? How did individuals confronted with a crisis react to the new state of affairs? Were their attempts successful or has instability remained?
This conference examines the concept of crisis from a plethora of disciplinary angles within the Central and Eastern European context. It offers a platform for discussing a complex set of interactions, interruptions and continuities that various forms of crises provoke.
Registration is by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The conference fee is £5, payable upon arrival. The conference is free for UCL staff and students.
The conference is made possible by generous support from:
