Maria Todorova: What is Useful about the “post-” in East European Studies? On post-colonialism, post-socialism, and historical legacies

Department of Ethnology, Charles University, is delighted to welcome Prof. Maria Todorova (Department of History, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), who will give a lecture What is Useful about the “post-” in East European Studies? On post-colonialism, post-socialism, and historical legacies.

The lecture will assess the use and utility of post-colonialism, among other “posts”, as an analytical category for the study of Eastern Europe. It will plead for the value of historical (temporal and spatial) concreteness.

The lecture is a part of „Balkans and Anthropological Imagination“ lecture series organized by the Department of Ethnology, Faculty of Arts (Charles university). The series is supported by KREAS (Creativity and Adaptability as Conditions for the Success of Europe in an Interrelated World).
