Dr Peter Bugge
Aarhus University, Denmark
I am associate professor of Central European Studies with a research specialization in Czech and Czechoslovak history, culture, and society of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I have worked on issues of dissent, ‘grey zones’, youth culture, the relationship between Communist power and the rule of law and similar issues for decades, as reflected in my list of publications. I have translated several works by Václav Havel into Danish, before and after 1989. I have a long track record of international cooperation. I am a member of the Academic Council of the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes (ÚSTR) in Prague and of the executive board (“Vorstand”) of Collegium Carolinum – Research Institute for the History of the Czech Lands and Slovakia in Munich. I chair the international academic advisory board of the Graduate School for East and Southeast European Studies (Universities of Munich and Regensburg). I was MC-member and financial rapporteur in the COST Action IS0803, Remaking eastern borders in Europe: a network exploring social, moral and material relocations of Europe's eastern peripheries.
