The 30th Anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 2019 is a fitting moment to take stock of the cultural changes in Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe over the past three decades and to reflect on the region’s conflicted and contested “Europeanness.” This is also a propitious moment to reexamine the existing analytical frameworks for writing the cultural history of this period, and to consider new possibilities.
