Call For Papers: Arts during communism
This panel wants to discuss different examples of how art was regarded by different communist regimes in communist countries. What kind of art do communist regimes promote? Are there any important differences between Yugoslavia and Poland for example? Do political science typologies serve to understand the types of art created or do other typologies appear? The panel welcomes proposals from all artistic endeavors: visual arts, literature, theater, music, cinema and dance. Papers can deal with a national case as well as advance comparative overviews of the topic.
