This forthcoming conference, to be held at Sheffield Hallam University's Collegiate Crescent Campus from Thursday 10 to Saturday 12 September 2009, will reassess a defining historical, political and ideological turning-point in the 'short twentieth century': the revolutions of 1989 in Central and Eastern Europe. The 20th anniversary of these seminal events is a particularly timely moment to revisit the rapid dismantling of the communist edifice, which had been in place since the late 1940s and which was widely regarded at the time as an impregnable 'totalitarian' fortress.
