Spaces and Places in Transition: Urban and Rural Transformations in Central and Eastern Europe_

 7.-10. 11.  Vila Lanna, Praha 6.

In the decades following the collapse of the Soviet Union, countries in Central and Eastern Europe have confronted a period of transformation processes that rapidly altered earlier structures of space and society, leaving their mark throughout urban wilderness, brownfields, border landscapes, and former military zones on the one hand, and suburbanisation, gentrification of cities, and industrialisation of agriculture on the other. By exploring the unique contexts and reactions to the preservation, removal, and transformation of spaces impacted by such processes, we can learn much about the ways in which contested histories and futures are mediated through built and natural environments, and the emotions that they inspire.
