Graduate School 1991
The Institute for East European Studies intensively accompanied the processes of perestroika and the transformation period. In 1991, it established the DFG-funded Research Training Group "The Transformation of Social Systems in Eastern and Southeastern Europe since the 1980s and its Historical Preconditions". Until 1997, groundbreaking research on changes in social life worlds, historical consciousness, media and political systems was carried out here in an interdisciplinary perspective. Here you can access the bibliography of works produced within the framework of the Research Training Group on transformation in the 1990s (in German).
We have conducted interviews with former fellows of the Research Training Group about their time at OEI. You can find them here.
