The 'Urban' and 'Rural' in Present-Day Bulgaria

Two-day workshop investigating current developments in Bulgaria, from an interdisciplinary (but primarily anthropological) perspective, mainly through the prism of urban-rural relations. It will look at the ways in which the 'urban' and 'rural' have been reconfigured after 1989, both in social and economic, as well as political, ideological and cultural terms. It will analyse the ways in which these changes affect realities in cities and the countryside now Bulgaria has become part of the EU.

The convenors gratefully acknowledge the support of CEELBAS, the British Academy, the Bulgarian Embassy, and the Centre for South-East European Studies.
