The project “East European Literary Magazines 1945 – 2004: Testing the Boundaries and paving the way to democratization” (LITMAG) goal is to address the lack in documentation, analysis and public awareness of the role of European literary magazines, specifically the East European literary magazines, as voices of opposition to authoritarian and totalitarian regimes in the period post World War II, and – later – as vehicles for democratic transition and consolidation in the period of accession to the European Union and EU membership. The project consortium, which brings together 8 project partners from 6 EU Member States (Slovenia, Poland, Austria, Hungary, Lithuania and Italy) will accomplish the project goal by collecting original material (print) and oral testimonies (photo, video) and moulding the material into an interactive travel exhibition, through a global three-part lecture series on the project topic and a project book publication targeting the academic and professional community.
