The conference aims to explore the critical link between the ideas and practices of gender, on the one hand, and “nationbuilding” on the other, in Eastern/Central Europe and Eurasia.
We tend to focus on the dynamics of this relationship during two separate, but related periods. One is the time of the “awakening of nations”, which was finalized in the nation-states on the edges of the three Eurasian Empires after WWI, or “national” administrative units in the USSR. The second period, which started after 1989 (or 1991), also implies rethinking of the “national” and new nationbuilding in the post-communist space.
