    FRIAS Research Project

    “Marketing the Market. The Representations of Economic Change in Czechoslovakia 1989 - 1992 in a Comparative Perspective."

    The project explores the representation forms of economic reforms in Czechoslovakia following the fall of centrally planned economy in 1989 - 1990. The main emphasis is put on the analysis of the ways the concept of fast economic transition towards a liberal market setting was mediated into the public sphere and of means helping it to generate wide public consent and support. Thus the main questions structuring the project are: How was the academic concept of fast transition explained and represented in the newly constituted public sphere of the post-communist societies? What arguments were used to legitimize the selected concept and to delegitimize alternative transition paths at the same time? By what means and arguments were the binaries defined, which legitimized the desirability of the given transition concept, i.e. how were binaries such as effective/ineffective, scientific/unscientific, feasible/unfeasible and ultimately good/bad or us/them constituted and filled in relation to the particular concept of the liberal, fast made economic transition on one side and to alternative transition concepts on the other?

    By elaborating on the Czechoslovak as well as selected comparative cases (above all Poland), the project should strive for a comparative, culture-based understanding of the way how the liberal economic paradigm disseminated throughout the region after 1989 and thus contribute to answering the main question, i.e. how was the (post)modern capitalism able to ground itself in the newly emerging post-communist subjectivities.
