K. Robbe, PhD
The main field of my current research is comparative studies of remembering the transitional periods (1980-90s) in Eastern Europe and Southern Africa, with the focus on contemporary Russophone and Anglophone cultural productions.
As part of this project, I’m editing the volume Remembering Transitions: Local Revisions and Global Crossings in Culture and Media (under contract with De Gruyter) which examines mediated re-engagements with ‘transitions’ in recent years with cases from Central and Eastern Europe, Southern Europe, Southern Africa, Latin America, and East Asia.
Several academic events which I have recently co-organized relate to this line of research:
Panel ‘The Politics, Ethics and Aesthetics of Post-Transitional Time: Memory beyond Post-History’, First conference of the Postsocialist and Comparative Memory Studies working group of the Memory Studies Association, September 2020.
Workshop ‘(Un)timely Crises: Chronotopes and Critique’, co-organized with Maria Boletsi, Kasia Mika and Natashe Lemos Dekker, Dutch National Research School for Literary Studies, University of Amsterdam, October 2019, and co-editing a resulting cluster of essays (under peer-review).
Panel “Post-Socialist Transitions through Children’s Eyes”, conference of the Memory Studies Association, Madrid, 2019.
I am part of the organizing team of the first conference of the Postsocialist and Comparative Memory Studies (PoSoCoMeS) working group of the Memory Studies Association to take place in September 2020 (https://www.posocomes.org).
