    Post-soviet diaspora(s) in Western Europe (1991-2017)

    Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, millions of former soviet citizens crossed the national borders in search of better lives in new countries, in what was the biggest migration tide since the end of World War II. These Post-Soviet migrants were diverse in origins, strategies and expectations. They often represented a challenge to the orthodox views of migration processes, since in most cases these flows could not be easily described and analysed following commonly accepted theoretical frameworks. Everybody seemed to be on the move: labour migrants, political refugees, cross-border traders, “tourists” planning to forget their return... and in a short period, they spread all over Western Europe.

    The peripheries of the European revolutionary process(es) 1917–1923

    International conference to be held in Florence, Italy, in October 2017 on the impact of the Russian Revolution on non-conventional, non-Social Democratic groups (anarchists, nationalists, feminists, republicans, etc.) that were also shaken by the events of 1917 and often played an important role in the birth of the international communist movement, but which have tended to fall out of the purview of the historiography, which has traditionally focused on the splits in the big socialist parties and on the German, Austrian, and Hungarian revolutions.

    History, Memory and Reshaping Identity in Post-Communist Literatures

    CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture Journal, special issue, December 2017

    This volume is intended for both scholars and a general readership interested in contemporary aspects of post-communist literatures from East-Central Europe which witness a special relation between History, Memory and reshaped identity (be it personal or collective). Papers are invited to analyze strategies of remembering communism in different types of discourse, from autobiographical recollections to collective representations which re-define the post-traumatic status of the Eastern intellectuals in relation to the "rediscovered" West and their transition dilemmas.

    Benelux: Europe and the Cold War

    The Power of non-powers and perspectives on the economic, social and political aspects of European Security Strategy in the early Cold War

    What are the historical roots of views of European defense and Europe's role in Western defence? How did the early European Integration movement perceive American involvement in the development of a common security strategy? This conference will investigate these and other related questions by re-examining the early cold war US/European relationship and the role that early Cold War period developments played in the European Integration Movement. In so doing, this conference will also showcase findings which can contribute to the unification of Cold War and European Integration historiographies.
