changing notions of masculinity, femininity, and sexuality under socialism;

women's roles as workers, mothers, and consumers;

gender and resistance;

feminist discourse in the era of state socialism;

the interplay between official discourses and subjective experiences in shaping gender roles and identities under socialism;

revisiting feminist debates regarding the "evidence of experience" with regard to gender and socialist Eastern Europe;

everyday life as a site of resistance, negotiation, or complicity;

the politics of gender and memory in the study of socialist and post-socialist societies.
