Abstract

"The story of modernist architects in East Central Europe.&#xD;&#xD;The first half of the twentieth century witnessed the rise of modernist architects. Brokers of Modernity reveals how East Central Europe turned into one of the pre-eminent testing grounds of the new belief system of modernism. By combining the internationalism of the CIAM organization and the modernising aspirations of the new states built after 1918, the reach of modernist architects extended far beyond their established fields. Yet, these architects paid a price when Europe’s age of extremes intensified. Mainly drawing on Polish, but also wider Central and Eastern European cases, this book delivers a pioneering study of the dynamics of modernist architects as a group, including how they became qualified, how they organized, communicated and attempted to live the modernist lifestyle themselves. In doing so, Brokers of Modernity raises questions concerning collective work in general and also invites us to examine the social role of architects today."&#xD;

Abstract

Bisher liegen kaum Studien vor, welche die Geschichte einer einzelnen Stadt des ostslawischen Siedlungsgebietes über einen längeren Zeitraum untersuchen. Das Beispiel von Polock zeigt, wie sich ein bedeutender Fürstensitz der Rus’ im Kontakt mit Ostmitteleuropa vom 13. Jahrhundert an tief greifend verändert. Im Rahmen Polen-Litauens folgten auf die von Orthodoxen getragene Kommunegenese im Spätmittelalter konfliktreiche Konfessionsbildungsprozesse und die Entstehung orthodoxer sowie unierter Zünfte und Laienbruderschaften im 17. Jahrhundert. Die rechtliche Uneinheitlichkeit der Stadt ließ sie zur Zufluchtsstätte einer wachsenden jüdischen Gemeinde werden. Nach der Eingliederung ins Zarenreich 1772 wurden die Juden in die städtische Selbstverwaltung eingebunden, jedoch 1892 wieder aus ihr ausgeschlossen. Diese Exklusion konnte im Handlungsfeld des Vereinswesens der nun mehrheitlich jüdischen Stadt nur teilweise kompensiert werden.

It forms a unit together with the catalog “Central European Schools III (Bohemia - Moravia - Silesia - Hungary, ca 1350–1400)” published in 2004, and completes the investigations concerned with the art of book illumination in the Central and Eastern regions during the second half of the 14th Century.

Abstract

This volume is the result of a conference, which was held from June 14–15, 2012 at the Event Centre Schüttkasten in Klement-Oberleis, Lower Austria. The thematic focus of the contributions was the nature of contacts and relations between the settlement areas of the La Tène culture, which are associated with the Celtic tribes of the Boii and Taurisci on the basis of numismatic and written sources. The paradigm shifts in Iron Age archaeology and the veritable explosion of new archaeological materials and find contexts (coins, fibulae, Knotenringe, architecture and settlement features) have found their expression in this volume.

Abstract

This book interrogates the nature of anti-Americanism today and over the last century. It asks several questions: How do we define the phenomenon from different perspectives: political, social, and cultural? What are the historical sources and turning points of anti-Americanism in Europe and elsewhere? What are its links with anti-Semitic sentiment? Has anti-Americanism been beneficial or self-destructive to its “believers”? Finally, how has the United States responded and why? The authors, ...

Abstract

This is the first part of the third volume of the four-volume series, a daring project of CEU Press, presenting the most important texts that triggered and shaped the processes of nation-building in the many countries of Central and Southeast Europe. The aim is to confront ‘mainstream’ and seemingly successful national discourses with each other, thus creating a space for analyzing those narratives of identity which became institutionalized as “national canons.” This is the first part of the...

Abstract

Im östlichen Europa leben in den letzten Jahrzehnten historische Mythen wieder auf: "Volkskultur" oder religiöse Traditionen tragen genauso zu einer nationalen Identitätspolitik bei wie jüngere Erinnerungsorte, beispielsweise aus dem Kontext Sport oder der Populärkultur. Mit Blick auf Polen, Tschechien, Russland, Bulgarien, Ungarn, Kroatien, die Slowakei sowie die Ukraine ethnografieren die Beiträge des Bandes diese Wiederentdeckung des Nationalen aus kulturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive. Sie beleuchten die Ursachen und Spezifika dieser aktuellen Entwicklungen in den postsozialistischen Ländern und gehen den Folgen für den europäischen Einigungsprozess nach.

Abstract

How do museums and cinema shape the image of the Communist past in today’s Central and Eastern Europe? This volume is the first systematic analysis of how visual techniques are used to understand and put into context the former regimes. After history “ended” in the Eastern Bloc in 1989, museums and other memorials mushroomed all over the region. These efforts tried both to explain the meaning of this lost history, as well as to shape public opinion on their society’s shared post-war heritage...
