Transgressing the Borders between the Public and the Private in State Socialist Bulgaria

Fri, November 10, 8:00 to 9:45am, Marriott Downtown Chicago, Floor: 3rd, Dupage

Session Submission Type: Panel

Affiliate Organization: Bulgarian Studies Association

Brief Description

The establishment of the new political regime in Bulgaria after World War II led to radical changes in many areas of the public life. The Political acquired a new meaning in the conditions of a one-party authoritarian regime; the employment sphere and the everyday culture became indoctrinated. The proposed panel aims to discuss the issues of whether and how boundaries between the Private and Public changed during the communist regime in Bulgaria and what was the dynamics of their change. The panel aims to clarify the content of the categories "Private" and "Public" and their value to anthropological analysis.
