Central Europe Yearbook
The Czechoslovak Studies Association (CSA) is pleased to announce the opening of the competition for the Stanley Z. Pech Prize for 2022.
We seek proposals for chapters for an edited volume tentatively titled “Race and Racism in Divided Germany,” which will bring together new scholarship on the history of racialization and racism in both East and West Germany during the Cold War and since unification. We are particularly interested in work about the period between the 1970s and the 1990s.
