The joint CRC session organized in cooperation with the CEU History Department and the OSA Archivum aims to bring scholars and experts with significant teaching and research experience to discuss how the 1956 revolution and its crack-down influenced and altered dissident thinking within the Soviet bloc during its afterlife, and how these experiences might be compared to the lessons of similar events, with a special focus on the Polish events in 1966, and Prague Spring and Fall,1968.

The session offers an optional workshop entitled "1956 Revolution and opposition movements under totalitarian regimes" and a round table discussion on the evening of the exhibition opening (November 4) devoted to the art works of Endre Rozsda on the pre-history of the revolution. Both event's goal is to help lecturers/professors to develop or update their own courses related to the topics above by bringing into curricula new primary sources and approaches.

Participants will also have a chance to get acquainted with the new virtual collection at OSA Archivum on 1956.

Important note: CRC session applicants are encouraged to present a paper during the workshop and take part in the round table discussion. Those participants who wish to present a paper or give presentation should submit 400-500 words abstract for the paper. The paper can address either a theoretical aspect or focus on a particular case study.
