Conferinţa Internaţională Breaking the Wall, octombrie 2017

During October 11-12, 2017, The Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of the Romanian Exile, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS), Faculté des Lettres, Langues et Sciences Humaines – Université D’Angers and Centre de Recherches Historiques de l’Ouest (CERHIO) organized, in Bucharest, the International Conference Breaking the wall: A national and transnational perspective on East-European Science (1945-1990).

The event reunited the best specialists in the history of science from various areas: history, biology, medicine, genetics, sociology, philosophy, in order to get a larger perspective over the way politics and scientific research influenced each other during the communist regime in Europe during the second half of the XX century. The conference represented a debate forum for specialists studying the specificity of the soviet science and the way it was perceived internationally (both in satellite countries and in the western ones), but also the actual situations in which scientific projects were used for totalitarian purposes, with the harshest of consequences for the population.

The full program of the conference is available here.
