CfP: Artistes en exil politique en France (1945-1989)

De Yalta à la chute du mur, le partage du monde en ce l’on appelle alors des « zones d’influence », exacerbe, en plusieurs endroits et sur tous les continents, les tensions politiques et militaires. Dans les pays sous emprise soviétique ou américaine, des artistes, femmes et hommes, confrontés à la censure ou menacés dans leur propre pays, se voient contraints à un exil plus ou moins volontaires. Parmi ces artistes, certains sont accueillis en France au titre d’exilés politiques.

CfP: Russia's 1990s: Global Perspectives

In general, narratives about the end of the USSR focus on domestic dimensions of the disintegration of the Soviet Union or discuss reasons and consequences of the Soviet decline in the context of Cold War history.

Both perspectives are highly relevant for an interpretation of the events of 1991 and their consequences. Nevertheless, they too often obscure the view on other essential international and global perspectives.
