With the political upheavals of 1848, independence in 1918, the Nazi occupation of 1938, the socialist coup in 1948, and the Warsaw Pact invasion of 1968, Czech, Slovak, and Czechoslovak history are often reduced to the narratives of these ‘8s’. With a keynote lecture by David Cooper from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and speakers contributing perspectives from film, theater, Jewish studies, urban studies, and gender studies, this program creates a space for interdisciplinary approaches to the idea of commemoration, memory, and the making and managing of Czech and Slovak history and identity.
