A ‘real world’ study

This blog was created in order to gather, analyse  and track data while investigating the shifting and diverse cultural perceptions of communism and the communist regime as a socio-economic system.

The developers of the “Perceptions of communism” project are:

  • Marina Gogeanu
  • Eduard Vasile
  • Mwen Fikirini
  • Lesoda Otu-Iso
  • Foong Lin Liew
  • Rose Muzvondiwa

The study will consist in a field trip to Prague (Czech republic) because of its historical depiction and because of the communist regime, during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.  It will focus on finding out how the concept of communism is reconstructed today in people’s memory, predominantly of those raised under the communist system, but it will also analyse the spectacle created by the communist regime (the political figures, the revolution) and the power those dictators had (the communist architecture, the crimes committed during communism).

The project will also try to find out how the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe portrayed communism in their history; how the communism is represented through films, through television shows, literature, or in the press coverage.

We hope that you will find this topic interesting and that you will be  following us, telling us your opinions regarding all the concerns that the research will cover.
