Re-writing the history of Eastern and Southern Europe after the fall of communism
I am looking for papers of varying lengths (1000-1500, 5000 or 8000) on re-evaluations of the histories of Eastern European countries following the collapse of communism.
The papers will be published in the major new electronic journal History Compass, recently launched by Blackwells Publishers in association with the Institute of Historical Research (London). The longer articles are fully peer revieed. Examples of the types of articles published by History-Compass can be found on the demonstration website (below). The target audience is fellow academics who specicialise in other fields.
The articles might cover new developments in the historiography of individual states, the legitimation of democratic national states, re-interpretations of particular topics, the importance of newly opened sources, and exchanges with Western countries.
Please address preliminary suggestions to me, including an indication of the length of article you would wish to write. Subsequently those wishing to write longer articles will be asked to submit a a one-page abstract.
