The Body Politics of Childbirth: Czechoslovakia and the United States from 1948 to the Present
March 26, 2013 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Dr. Muriel Blaive is director of the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for European History and Public Spheres in Vienna, Austria. Previously she had been Assistant Professor in the History of Communism at Charles University, Prague. She received her PhD in History and Civilizations from École des hautes études en sciences sociales in Paris.
Dr. Blaive has written extensively on memories of the Holocaust, the Beneš decrees, and the Communist experience in Czechoslovakia more generally, and is a founding member of Dějiny-Teorie-Kritika, one the Czech Republic’s leading journals of history. Her talk will draw from her work within the international research network, “Physical Violence in Late State Socialism.”
The event is part of the Czech Speaker Series and is sponsored by the Center for European Studies, the Center for Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Studies, and the History Department.
