Two decades after the end of the Cold War, the time has come to reflect upon its lingering legacy. This international and interdisciplinary conference will discuss the main features of the East­-West conflict, probe its conflicting memories and analyze its cultural representations. By presenting the views of participants the public opening session intends to focus on the peaceful way in which the Cold War was concluded in order to contribute to the ongoing reintegration of Europe.
