This book draws together perspectives from Eastern and Western Europe. It provides a contemporary emphasis. It links writers well established in their fields to new voices.The concept of a public sphere has traditionally been associated with urban spaces. "Public Spheres After Socialism" contests this in light of shifts of perspective in the East and West after the end of the Cold War and the disintegration of the Soviet Union. "Public Spheres" draws together contemporary experiences from Armenia - an interesting site of cultural and political cross-currents - Germany, Austria, France and the United Kingdom. It reconsiders the concept of a public sphere as a figurative, or mythical, location in which the members of a society shape and determine its values and ask to what extent this public sphere exists or is viable today. Among the ideas presented in this groundbreaking volume are the cultures of public time, everyday memorials, urban reconstruction, film as a dialogic site, and the mapping of a post-socialist city in youth culture.Esteemed academics cover a wide range of issues, including public spaces and monuments, urban reconstruction, film, new media and communication. They explore the major shifts in theory and consider how the dualism of the Cold War has been replaced by the single ideological position of globalized consumerism.
