The degree of ceremony marking the death of Václav Havel (23.12.2011) apparently confirmed the transformation of the collapse of Communism from an event in living memory into complete historical narrative. Yet, the dramatic story of 1970s and 80s dissidents and the path to 1989—this story of private individuals helping to bring about what seemed impossible has assumed ever greater relevance to the present.
This conference seeks to identify the political, cultural, and philosophical questions that underlie ‘East European dissidence’ and to consider their implications for dissent today.
