Since the 1950s the generational concept has become very common in the social sciences. The Change 1989 even enhanced the generational issue: Which generation was involved in the change and how? Are the narratives of people belonging to one generation but divided by political systems still related to each other?
This round table brings 30 years after the European Changes Dr. Éva Kovács (Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest) and Dr. Sue Hollinrake (University of Sussex, GB) as round table guests to Neubrandenburg University. In discussion with Prof. Vera Sparschuh, students and interested citizens of the town should be reviewed if and how the generational concept can still add to the understanding of social change in Europe: What exactly is and how change “works” from one generation to the other in respect to values, life style, routines etc.? Who was the generation change? What about the generation born around 1989? Do they took over the democratic legacy? What can we expect from generation Z?
