Neoliberalism Panels for ASEEES, New Orleans, November 2011‏


Over the last two decades, neoliberalism has arguably been the dominant historical force in the former Second World. And yet within Slavic Studies, it has received only a fraction of the scholarly attention it deserves. Building upon the work of this year's summer school on neoliberalization and the crises of capital held at the Central European University (http://www.sun.ceu.hu/02-courses/course-sites/neoliber/index-neoliber.php), at ASEEES 2012 Rosen would like to organize several panels that seek to account for some of the region's recent history through the prism of neoliberalism. A similar announcement is going to history, sociology/ anthropology, and possibly political science list-servers, hopefully making this endeavor a truly interdisciplinary one. For scholars of culture in particular, it would be interesting to examine not only neoliberalism's consequences for post-socialist cultural production (film, literature, and other arts) and social relations but also its relationship with such familiar topics as late-socialist dissidence, human rights, and others. djagalov@fas.harvard.edu
