Abstract

This Special Issue is borne out of a collaboration between the editors that spans the past three years. This collaboration is part of a growing academic and activist network that has emerged in the last few years grappling with questions around the possibility of creating dialogues between the postsocialist and the postcolonial. These dialogues, famously encouraged by a seminal article ‘Thinking Between the Posts’ by Chari and Verdery (2009) have been predominantly taken up by Eastern European scholarship inspired by postcolonial and decolonial thinking about Eastern Europe and Eurasia and led to numerous initiatives, workshops and scholarly outputs (Dialoguing between the Posts network; Todorova 1997; Kušić, Lottholz and Manolova 2019; Gržinić, Kancler and Rexhepi 2020; Mark et al 2019; Boatcă 2007; Ţichindeleanu 2011; Tlostanova 2012). For too long we have ignored our common history where we did, at one point, connect with dreams and plans of alternative globalisations (Mark et al 2019). Where Eastern Europe looked not decisively and only towards the West but also joined in solidarity with decolonial forces across the Global South. In the last three decades, Eastern Europe has been on a high-speed train towards Western modernity, moving further away from a critique of global capitalism.
