‘Silenced’ Conflict Zones and the Case of Crimea

Im Schatten drängender Fragen wie der Zukunft der EU oder dem Krieg in Syrien lässt sich auf dem Gebiet der ehemaligen Sowjetunion eine Reihe vergessener bzw. gleichsam totgeschwiegener Konflikte beobachten. Diese Konflikte, die regionale Brennpunkte wie den Nordkaukasus oder das Ferghanatal umfassen, sind durch nachlassende internationale und nationale Aufmerksamkeit bis hin zur gänzlichen Vernachlässigung gekennzeichnet. Der Workshop beschäftigt sich mit den Hintergründen, Dimensionen und Konsequenzen vergangener und gegenwärtiger Prozesse des Vergessens bzw. Totschweigens mit Blick auf einen ebenso aktuellen wie vom „Vergessen“ bedrohten Konflikt: der Krim.

Institutional Change in Political Economies and Varieties of Methods in Social Science Research on Postcommunism

The workshop’s goal is to focus on the methodological challenges arising from the research on the multitude of economic transformation trajectories of the post-Communist countries (in Central and Eastern Europe and in the post-Soviet Eurasia) and their societal outcomes. One of the most contested issues between area studies and broader social sciences has been the need to, first, understand how concepts and theories developed in a particular environment ‘travel’ across different regions, and second, whether the empirical research methods are able to produce interesting results in different regional contexts (taking into account the specifics of local societies, data availability, constraints for researchers etc.). In some cases, this discussion is fairly elaborate (this is the case, in particular, for China). In case of the post-Communist world, this discussion has been more limited and, if happened at all, frequently detached from the actual empirical work done by social scientists. The workshop attempts to bridge this gap, with its two parts: the methods round table (devoted explicitly to understanding the conceptual and empirical challenges associated with studying post-Communist regions) and three thematical panels, where research papers on certain topics should be presented and demonstrate the actual empirical challenges researchers face.

East Side Story of Ecological Globalization

The aim of the workshop is to integrate the ‘Eastern’ story into explanations of global environmental processes. Participants will explore the role that the Soviet Union played in an “ecological turn” of the 1970s, and what impact this had, in turn, on the Soviet Union.  By the mid- to late-1980s, in the context of perestroika and glasnost, socialist nations experienced a rapid and extensive rise in ecological consciousness. Public activities took hundreds of thousands of people to the streets and contributed decisively to the de-legitimation of the rule of the Soviet Party state. Only a few years later, however, ecology had lost its mobilizing effect almost completely. The workshop will look at both the rise of this phenomenon and its decline in the 1990s after the breakup of the USSR.
