Book presentation “East and West after 1989”, on Thursday 26 March

On Thursday 26 March, the presentation of the book “The legacy of division: East and West after 1989” will take place at Boekhandel Dominicanen, from 18.30 – 19.30.

The book is co-edited by Ferenc Laczo and Luka Lisjak Gabrijelcic. The book is a collection of 25 essays and two conversations. Parts of it have already been translated into six other languages.

Access to this event is free and registration is not required.

The volume examines the legacy of the East–West divide since the implosion of communist regimes in eastern Europe in 1989. In a series of original essays, authors from the fields of European and global history, politics, and culture address questions fundamental to our understanding of Europe today: How have perceptions and misperceptions between the two halves of the continent changed over the last three decades? Can one speak of a new East-West divide? If so, what characterises it and why has it re-emerged? Conversely, how have the hopes expressed in ’89 of reunifying Europe been fulfilled?

The event will introduce the public to the book and the broader theme of East-West relations in Europe after 1989. The book, which is the result of a co-publication of Eurozine and Central European University Press, is a good example of valorisation of academic research on European history to a broader audience.
