Conference «Oral history in Central-Eastern Europe: current research areas, challenges and specificity» (Łódź, 17-18 September 2015)
Студзеня 30, 2015 |
In the past several years, oral history has become increasingly popular in Central and Eastern Europe, both in academia and beyond. It is impossible to overstate the importance of various local initiatives aimed at recording history and propagating knowledge about a region’s past. At the same time, oral history is becoming more institutionalised: in several countries, archives and scholarly associations are being created, and international cooperation in the field intensifies.
While the popularity of oral history is a very positive phenomenon, it does raise multiple questions and issues. In contrast to Western Europe and North America, where oral history has been present for a long time, scholars from Central and Eastern Europe are still developing ethical, methodological and legal standards for their field. These standards are necessary for the recording, storing and editing of interviews, as well as their publication.
Thus, our conference seeks to pose questions regarding the specificity of oral history in our region. Does it exist and what does it look like? We are interested in the aforementioned ethical and legal challenges, but we also want to inquire about whether oral history in Central and Eastern Europe requires a particular and unique methodology and sensibility in comparison to its Western equivalent. In the West, oral history was a response to the need of recording the fates of groups heretofore disenfranchised by traditional historiography – ethnic minorities, women, workers, etc. So far, the obvious trend for oral history in Central and Eastern Europe has been to record the accounts of groups that had previously been marginalised by the undemocratic regimes of the Soviet bloc, and whose histories had remained outside of the officially approved historiography – the victims of repressions and deportation, the political opposition, members of the postwar anti-communist underground, Holocaust survivors, etc. The preeminence of these themes has left a clear mark on the oral history of the region. Faced with a change of generations, we should ask questions about the themes and types of interviewees that will shape the future of oral history in our region.
We would like to focus on oral history in countries such as Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Germany, Ukraine and Belarus. We invite both academics and non-academics who deal with oral history professionally to send us proposals for presentations. Possible topics can include, but do not have to be limited to:
- the specific methodology of oral history in Central and Eastern Europe;
- ethical and legal problems regarding the recording, gathering and publishing of biographical accounts;
- archives and archiving interviews;
- the institutionalisation, financial framework and relations between various research groups;
- the important themes of today and the themes of the future – a discussion about the future of oral history in the region.
We are interested in presentations focused on specific (national, local, thematic) case studies, as well as those that take a comparative approach. Papers concerning theoretical issues should be clearly related to the Central and Eastern European context.
Our confirmed key-note speakers are Alexander von Plato (FernUniversity in Hagen) and Miroslav Vaněk (The Institute of Contemporary History, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic).
The full conference fee is 250 PLN/60 EUR; the reduced fee for students and PhD students is 100 PLN/25 EUR. Successful applicants from Ukraine and Belarus will be able to apply for travel grants and fee waiver.

Disorder: Towards a social history of punk and post-punk
University of Paris Diderot, University of Chicago
With University of Versailles Saint-Quentin, New York University Paris
Friday 26 – Saturday 27 March 2015, Paris
Punk and Post-Punk: two movements that emerged in the mid to late seventies, the latter supposedly born from the ashes of the former, with the golden age of Post-Punk lasting till about 1984. The sheer number of new bands was staggering, and hundreds upon hundreds have made a name for themselves (Sex Pistols, Siouxsie and the Banshees, PIL, Gang of Four, Slits, The Pop Group, Père Ubu, Lydia Lunch, Einstürzende Neubauten, Dead Kennedys, Kas Product, Die Form, Magazine, Joy Division, John Foxx, Virgin Prunes, Bauhaus, UK Decay…). The degree of experimentation was likewise bewildering. All the arts were impacted, perhaps more especially in Britain. There were themes that had not been aired before in the music industry.
These movements have been written about in specialised or general-interest publications (Simon Reynolds, Rip It Up and Start Again: Postpunk 1978-1984—these dates can of course be debated), but they have not been the subject of very much academic research.
The time is ripe to reflect upon these “expressive moments” in relation to the socio-political climate in which they emerged. The social sciences provide methodologies and tools: ethnography of the audience, the writing of social history, studies of artist/media relations, quantitative and qualitative studies of economic exchange, such as indie labels, distribution networks, advertising and communication strategies, etc.
The Punk/Post-Punk movements were steeped in the socio-political environment, especially because their audience was young, and their formulas (lyrics and “attitude”) are to be observed in relation to the social sphere. Their impact, if impact there was, needs to be complexified. We need to deconstruct all these notions before we can reassess any impact, image, or history. What reading can be given of these movements looking back at them? Was/were the movement(s) homogeneous? Do the chronological accounts stand up to scrutiny? Did the participants really have “agency”? Or are we, in retrospect, faced with a history in fragments, a series of isolated responses to economic situations, and individual political reactions to the social order? Was there radical change or continuity in either of the movements, musically or otherwise? Finally, is the temporality inherent in the term “Post-Punk” useful, or should other denominations prevail?
The conferences and discussion panels will concentrate on three main themes (the topics listed below are not exhaustive):
I. PUNK/POST-PUNK AND SOCIETY
- The media and spheres of influence: who says what is Punk/Post-Punk?
- Commitment and provocation: Politics or posing?
- The real impact on society (then and now)
- Art-school punk vs. street punk
II. PUNK/POST-PUNK AND IDENTITIES
- Aesthetics and politics of Punk/Post-Punk identities in contrast to established norms
- Expressions and production of marginality: sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, social class
- Case studies of fan movements (fragmentation of the periods, of the public, etc.)
- Self-made fan-identity vs. the identities fabricated by the Majors: fashion, artifice and commerce of Punk/Post-Punk image making
- Importance of the home-made/hand-made in the construction of identities
- The effects of financial success
III. RESURGENCE OF PUNK/POST-PUNK AESTHETICS: CONTINUITIES AND DISCONTINUITIES
- Punk, Post-Punk and aesthetics: contemporary art (Throbbing Gristle, Test Dept, etc.)
- Punk/Post-Punk: nostalgia and posterity (1990-2015)
- Why the “Post-” in “Post-Punk”?
No limits will be placed either chronological or geographical.
Languages: conference papers and discussions may be in English or French.
Proposals to be submitted before 15 September 2014 and sent to
Submissions to be no more than one page long, and to include between three and five bibliographical references as well as a CV/résumé.
Papers must be original and unpublished.
Those papers selected for publication must be sent on or before 01 March 2015.
Conferences will be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion.
Scientific committee: Arnaud Baubérot (UPEC), Paul Edwards (Université Versailles St Quentin/ New York University Center in Paris), Élodie Grossi (Université Paris Diderot), Travis A. Jackson (University of Chicago), Paul Schor (Université Paris Diderot), Florence Tamagne (Université Lille III)

Call For Papers
We would like to invite you to participate in a special issue of an academic peer-reviewed Russian language quarterly “State, Religion and Church in Russia and Worldwide”. (Please find below basic information about the journal).
The theme of the special issue, which is planned as #4, 2015, will be «Science and Religion in the XIX Century», and it covers different forms of cultural interaction between scientific and religious discourses during the long nineteenth century (spilling over to late 18th and early 20th.). We will try to explore the limits and perspectives of the so called religion vs science “conflict thesis,” which has been recently widely criticized in scholarship. Despite relativistic and constructivist critique, the “conflict thesis” continues to attract both researchers and the public. While analyzing the century when the “conflict thesis” flourished, our special issue will investigate the reasons of its ongoing popularity.
We accept articles on various topics, of which some examples follow:
• Constructing «science», «religion» and the conflict thesis
• Natural theology between «science» and «religion»
• On the borders of science and superstition: magnetism, experimental spiritualism
• Philosophical perspectives on science and religion interaction in the 19th сеntury
• Scientific work in cultural setting: socio-historical and comparative perspectives
The Journal will accept original articles or, in some cases, important texts recently published elsewhere. Copyright and translation issues will be settled and costs covered by the Journal.
