Taking #30PostSovietYears as its thematic focus for the year, the Centre for East European and International Studies (ZOiS), in cooperation with the Körber Foundation, the German Association for East European Studies (DGO), the German Historical Institute Moscow, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Russia and Memorial International, is hosting a series of events and online formats that revisit the watershed year of 1991 and examine the legacies of the Soviet era. We will be looking at the dynamics, impacts and traces of that turbulent time and also examining cultures of remembrance.
Five of events are also part of the ZOiS Forum, a series that brings together academic, artistic and political perspectives on issues driving Eastern Europe today.
