This day conference is organised by the MIMMOC laboratory at the University of Poitiers which explores questions of Memory, Identity and Marginality in the Contemporary Western World within the parameters of its cultural and political themes.

In order to further explore the implications of the paradigm of the Wall (Day conference 8-9 Oct. 2009: Walls - contemporary paradigms. Evolution and perspectives 1989-2009), we propose this time to focus on the consequences of the process of German reunification throughout Europe.
Twenty years after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the events that led up to German unity – the term that Hans-Dietrich Genscher, former Foreign Minister of Germany, used in front of international journalists to correct them when they asked him about “reunification” in 1990 – one still remembers the reservations expressed by Margaret Thatcher and François Mitterrand. How did the European community react when the territory of the former German Democratic Republic was simply incorporated into the Federal Republic of Germany? What was the cultural and intellectual impact of German reunification throughout Europe? What was the impact of German reunification on divided nations like Ireland for example? How did the German process of unification echo in the former Eastern Europe? Was the German unity a “success story”? Can we speak of a new “special path” (Sonderweg) in German history?
To explore the different reactions the process of German reunification has raised in contemporary Europe since 1990, we encourage a pluridisciplinary approach. Contributions from the following fields for the different linguistic and cultural areas concerned are invited: sociology, geography, history, history of art, history of ideas, philosophy, literature, area studies.
The day conference organised by the MIMMOC research team is open to members and Masters students in Area Studies at the Poitiers Faculté des Lettres et des Langues and to the public interested in the theme. It will take place on:

Friday 22nd October - 9 a.m – 5 p.m
