Walls and (post)cosmopolitanisms in Central and Eastern Europe
January 15, 2013 1 Comment
Three new edited collections are reviewed on the Open Site:
First is Naomi Millner’s review of Walls, Borders, Boundaries: Spatial and Cultural Practices in Europe, edited by Marc Silberman, Karen Till and Janet Ward. The book was published by Berghan in 2012.
Second is Carlos Reijnen’s review of Monika Grubbauer and Joanna Kusiak’s edited volume Chasing Warsaw: Socio-Material Dynamics of Urban Change since 1990, which has just come out with University of Chicago Press.
These books focus especially (but not exclusively) on cultural and social transformations in post-socialist cities of various central and eastern European countries and on the contested narratives at the heart of such processes.
