UPD: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our Summer School will be held online!!
In the states of what is usually called Eastern Europe, by which in this case we mean the countries of the former “Eastern bloc”, an unprecedented social experiment was carried out throughout the 20th century, which included an obvious gender component. The so called “women's issue” (zhenskiy vopros) was resolved differently in different localities of Eastern Europe, whether it were different republics of USSR, East Germany or socialist Czechoslovakia, and these policies had different effects on public relations in these countries. After the collapse of socialist regimes and in the transformation to the capitalist system on the territory of these states, elements of the previous gender policy and gender order underwent rapid and not always predictable changes, many of which are still awaiting to be researched. Within the framework of the summer school “Gender History of Eastern Europe: Methods and Prospects”, we hope to begin a new round of discussion on the gender order in the countries of the “Eastern Bloc” under socialism and after the fall of socialist regimes.
The summer school was created specifically to support people who makes their steps in academia and are investigating gender issues in historical studies of Eastern Europe (MA students and PhD students). School participants will take part in lectures and seminars led by experts in gender history from different countries. In addition, they will be able to present their own research projects, discuss them and receive expert's feedback.
