Future in the Past? Regimes of Nostalgia in Post-Communist Romania

The aim of my research is to examine how these competing regimes of nostalgia have influenced the reconstructions of the Romanian recent past and moreover, how they have informed and inspired the blueprints for the post-communist future.
