13.07.2020 bis 14.07.2020
Online via Zoom
Beschreibung der Veranstaltung
The Hannah Arendt Institute for Totalitarianism Research (HAIT) at the TU Dresden organizes its first exploratory online workshop on care and volunteering in the post-socialist transformation. As due to COVID-19 this workshop cannot take place in Dresden, we propose a digital format that allows for the exchange of ideas among scholars in the field.
This interdisciplinary workshop examines how social care regimes and welfare systems in East Germany and Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe experienced and reacted to the postsocialist transformation. Special attention will be paid to the particular role individual agency – and especially volunteering as one particularly important form of individual agency – played in shaping the care institutions and initiatives throughout the period of abrupt political change in various postsocialist countries. As this is an online workshop, the number of participants is limited. The link to the workshop will be circulated to all registered attendees.
The contributions by international scholars from Germany, Denmark, Austria, Serbia, the UK, and Romania explore dimensions of care, gender and age, as well as the voluntariness associated with them, in the long transformation period, spanning from the 1980s to the 2000s. While the keynote lecture will be held synchronously, the two panels are based on pre-circulated papers that will serve as the basis for discussion among panelists and workshop attendees.
