“1956-es” – Resistance and Memories in Eastern Europe
This one-day workshop aims to provide a forum for a comparative assessment of resistance movements in the Eastern bloc in 1956. Focusing mostly on the Polish and Hungarian events, the workshop will address the significance of popular discontent (a nascent civil society?) in challenging the authority of the Party and the State, and in gradually eroding the communist system. The workshop is organized on the 55th anniversary of the events of 1956 and thus the issue of the legacy of 1956 will also be addressed. The multiplication of diverse historical and political interpretations, the fragmentation of the ‘idea of ’56’, and the emergence of 1956-es in the collective consciousness of the respective societies will be in the limelight of discussions at the workshop.
