The Intellectual Heritage of Feminist Political Thought during Early State Socialism. The Cases of the GDR, Hungary and Yugoslavia

Project description

Feminism behind the Iron Curtain

The term feminism means different things to different people today. It has evolved since its origins as a social movement for the emancipation of women in the late 18th century. The EU-funded EEURSOCFEM project will study the transnational intellectual history of feminist thought in three east central European countries during the early years of de-Stalinisation (1945-1956). The focus will be on the German Democratic Republic (GDR), Hungary and Yugoslavia. Researchers will aim to reinterpret the story of feminism in the region in relation to state socialism through the lens of feminism. It will reconstruct the multiplicity of official and unofficial feminist discourses circulating in east central Europe during the period of Stalinism.
