Event description

Description

From April 3 to April 7, 2018, the Department of History at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln will host a major international event to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Prague Spring and aftereffects of the Soviet-ordered Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968.

Led by Alexander Dubček, Prague Spring was a well-intentioned but ill-fated attempt to liberalize the authoritarian political system, and it would take another 20 years before the dissident playwright Václav Havel would lead one of the greatest political revolutions of our lifetime - the Velvet Revolution. Intended for the general public, speakers at Prague Spring 50 will reflect on Prague Spring and 1968, twenty years of “normalization” behind the Iron Curtain, and on the significance and meaning of the Velvet Revolution.
