May 2015 - The Imre Kertész Kolleg will hold its annual conference from 11. to 12. June in Jena. The aim of this international conference will be to explore the manifold aspects and reactions to a world in rapid transition in Central and Eastern Europe in the first year after the collapse of state socialism. Rather than reproducing the ongoing debate on why communism failed, and rather than taking the ensuing attempts at democracy for granted, this conference will contribute to developing an historical approach to the foundations of our contemporary world.
