Coming of Age When the Cold War Ended
The end of the Cold War was an event with a tremendous impact on a generation of young people that came of age around 1989. The new unfolding reality posed new problems and challenges for said generation. My project aims to study the factors that influenced the birth of this generation – and its members’ consciousness – during the late 1980s and early 1990s from a transnational and comparative perspective through a series of area case studies in Europe and beyond.
