Paradoxes of Race Politics of the Socialist State

The forthcoming book project on the paradoxes of racial politics of the socialist state relies on previous research related to the prehistory of postcolonialism in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The themes of race, racialization and racial politics are still underrepresented in the discourses of CEE. However, it is a permanent element in defining the "external" and the "internal enemy," constantly re-activated. A critical analysis of today's socio-political reality clearly shows that the patterns present in the public sphere, have their origins in an earlier history - in the longue durée perspective.
