Captured memories of Kolkhoz times: how contested memories affect the land use strategies in post-Soviet Armenia

Tamar Khutsishvili is a PhD student at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena

In her PhD, Tamar Khutsishvili examines land-use strategies in the village Pshatavan (Armavir Province, Armenia). The main focus is on the lives of two generations, the first with experience of Soviet life and its offspring born or raised after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. In her talk, the well-known phenomenon of nostalgia will be unfolded by scrutinising the narratives of the second generation through the lens of post-memory. The presentation seeks to understand the roots of collective memory among the second generation and their consequences for everyday life.

ZOiS Research Colloquium

In cooperation with the Freie Universität Berlin, the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and the Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS) is inviting scholars to participate in a new multidisciplinary research colloquium starting in the 2021 summer semester. The colloquium is intended to serve as a forum to discuss work in progress by PhD candidates, postdocs, and established researchers whose work in the social sciences focuses on Eastern Europe. The aim is to establish a permanent meeting point in the Berlin-Brandenburg area for people engaged in research on Eastern Europe. The research colloquium will take place online every second Wednesday at 6pm during the semester. We will send the access data shortly before the beginning of each session.

If you wish to participate, please register with Anja Krüger (events(at)zois-berlin(dot)de).
