International conference Listening to the Wind of Change

Popular Culture and Post-Socialist Societies in East-Central Europe

Location: Ethnographic Museum of the National Museum, Kinsky Folly, Kinského zahrada 98, Praha 5

Centre for the Study of Popular Culture and Department of Czech and Comparative Literature, Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague are proud to invite you to an international conference "Listening to the Wind of Change": Popular Culture and Post-Socialist Societies in East-Central Europe.


Despite important particularities amongst different countries of East-Central Europe the fall of state socialism brought new conditions for ways of production and distribution of popular culture. At the same time the “longue durée” nature of popular culture meant that it persisted beyond the late state socialist period. But did the dynamics of popular culture follow any of the shifts that marked the economic and political spheres? Which patterns of cultural production and reception were mobilized to influence popular culture and how important remained local contexts? How can we interpret these changes to reflect present-day societal problems?

Conference language is English and admission to both days of the conference is 250 CZK.
