Revised edition of an earlier version of this text, published in The borders were changed after the Potsdam conference, leading to mass deportations and resettlement of millions of people. Vast areas of multi-ethnic Vast areas of multi-ethnic borderlands that had been typical of the pre-World War II Eastern and Central Europe turned in most cases into monoethnic states. Cultural and national diversity, which had been the hallmark of what Hanna Arendt called "the belt of mixed populations", albeit not without strife or conflict, virtually disappeared in most communist states, with the exception of Romania and the Yugoslavian federation.
Landscape, always a palimpsest of human and natural layering in time, held traces of that erased presence of people exterminated during the war or evicted afterwards. The communist states began also the push toward modernization and collectivization, profoundly changing rural and urban landscapes. At the same time landscape became a crucial ideological arena for the communist state on which the successful story of human command of nature for the common good of the people was to be played out.
As witness and active agent of key historical events such as uprisings, wars, burials and revivals, landscape was the repository of national history and memory, contributing an essential scenery for commemoration practices. Irreversible damage to natural resources done by heavy industry was covered up with the politics of conservationism and ecological responsibility. After the breakthrough of , landscape was fundamentally transformed again by sweeping changes that affected the economy and created hybrid combinations of industrial and post-industrial urban space.
Moreover, government was decentralized and the new freedom was used to construct new collective identities a turn to regional forms of belonging, transborder solidarities and common histories and, at the same time, a weakening of centralised national affiliations. Likewise, privatization of space commodified landscape, challenging the sense of commonality in the experience of public space, while, on the other hand, civic thinking about ecology and environmental openness gained ground.
We would like to invite scholars in the field of humanities and social sciences who will share their perspectives on the reordering of physical and social space in Central Europe after World War II and after the collapse of communism. The following points, among others, could provide prompts for our discussions: A selection of papers will be published. The conference is part of a series of symposia, which bring together established scholars with early career researchers, particularly from East Central Europe.

Our conference seeks to confront the discourse of affective mobilization propagating anti-EU and anti-immigration policies in many European countries, with its opponent, the discourse of civic ethos and cosmopolitanism. How did it happen How did it happen that xenophobia and anti-European sentiment have become a vocal presence in public discourse? We hope that the conference will shed some light on how a refurbished nationalism has become central to the new visions of what has become a functioning oxymoron in Central Europe: We would like to invite contributions from the fields of history, political science, social and cultural anthropology, literary studies, sociology and linguistics.

However, not only did large numbers of Central Europeans migrate to the former colonial world, but Central However, not only did large numbers of Central Europeans migrate to the former colonial world, but Central Europeans also provided personnel to occupy, administer and police colonial empires, and reflected on colonial experiences at the levels of high and popular culture.
Even if largely excluded from colonial politics at an international level, Central Europeans played an important role in generating new discourses based on data gathered in the colonial contact zone. Publications on exotic worlds circulated widely in Central Europe and inspired new conceptions of world history, world literature, and cosmopolitanism, in conjunction with new concepts of human nature esp.
A closer look at the role of Central European actors in imperial domains can contradict the supposed consistency of colonial discourses. Focussing on these differences might put the supposed sameness of colonisers into perspective. In addition, their in-between position brought Central Europeans into contact with both the West European imperial powers and Russia, which made the Central European experiences and perspectives in many ways richer than those of the colonial powers themselves, where close contacts with specific territories tended to marginalise perceptions of other parts of the world.
Therefore, an important point to discuss would be the role Central Europe played in developing notions of globalism. On the other hand, large parts of Central Europe experienced a similar fate at the hand of the great powers recently from the Soviet Union as countries in Africa, Asia and the Americas.
Plümper-Hüttenbrink, Siegfried [WorldCat Identities]
Just as post colonial studies examines the colonial past of these areas, scholars have recently started to explore the same processes in Central Europe. Finally, increasingly global trade networks, brought about by the expansion of European colonialism, impacted on material culture, whether via the importation of new commodities to Central Europe, or the export of manufactured goods.

Giraudoux's dominant theme is the relationship between man and woman—or in some cases, between man and some unattainable ideal.

With the outbreak of World War I, he served with distinction and in became the first writer ever to be awarded the wartime Legion of Honour.
