Call for Papers

Transatlantic Dialogues. Eastern Europe, The U.S., and
Post-Cold War Cultural Spaces

This Workshop is organized within the framework of the
Fifth International Conference of the Romanian
Association for American Studies, “The Sense of
America. Histories into Text.”

Time and place: 24th of May, 2008, The University of
Bucharest, Bucharest.

The workshop focuses on the topical issue of
transatlantic relations in the post-Cold War period,
and specifically addresses the question of
transatlantic exchanges, representations and
misrepresentations that characterize this age of
transition and upheaval. Post-communism, itself a
highly volatile term, has come to signify a cluster of
historical, social, cultural, economic discourses
about change in Eastern Europe. While Cold War
mythology was largely responsible for drawing up a
vision of a highly polarized world, the post-Cold War
configuration is still undergoing a process of
negotiation to account for new structures of
organization that cut across fields as diverse as
culture, literature, education, politics, social life,
economics. The organisers welcome approaches dealing
with the multiple binds of post-Cold War
configurations from a variety of disciplinary and
inter-disciplinary perspectives including literature,
history, political science, sociology, economy, visual
arts, media and film studies, popular culture. Papers
may address themes such as those below:
-	converging discourses: post-communism,
post-colonialism, post-modernism
-	the post-communist transition and the renegotiation
of Eastern European identity
-	the postmodern ethos and post-Cold War
cultural/social dynamics
-	Eastern European predicaments and models for the
-	the “end of history” in transatlantic perspective
-	transatlantic relations in the age of globalization
-	U.S. cultures in Eastern European contexts
-	exporting Eastern Europe to the USA: techniques of
representation and dissemination
-	post-Cold War U.S. literary and media discourses
about Eastern Europe.

The organizers are inviting proposals for 20 minute
papers on these and other themes related to the topic
of the workshop.

Please submit 300-word abstracts by January 31st 2008
to the following address:
transatlanticdialogues la gmail.com

A selection of papers will be published in the
workshop proceedings.
