issue 1, 2020: Contested Names: (Re-)Naming and Place-Name Politics in Post-Socialist Countries

This volume addresses the theory and  the practice of place-name policies carried out in socialist and post-socialist states during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The volume aims to analyse geographical (re-)naming as a political and ideological practice, engaged in the construction of historical narratives and symbolic space, which also has shapedcollective memories and identities in post-communist and post-soviet countries. The issue will focus on state and local toponymic strategies and habits, renaming patterns, as well as hegemonic and alternative ideologies of place-naming. We invite articles from scholars working in the fields of history, geography, sociology, linguistics, political, gender, culturaland urban studies.     

The volume aims to analyze the following themes:

  • The politicization of toponymy and commemoration as a result of changes in political and ideological regimes in post-communist and post-socialist countries.
  • The deologicalization and de-ideologicalization of place names: strategies, practices, projects and patterns
  • Memory politics and commemorative naming practices
  • Place-name politics and the construction of collective identities (national, regional, local, and gender)
  • Renaming as the rebranding of national narratives
  • Actors and the objects of (re-)naming
  • Place names and the symbolism of urban and rural spaces; practices of place (re-)naming and the politics of place
  • Gender issues in the domain of toponymy and renaming
  • Linguistic landscapes, place-name design, multilingualism and language policies
  • The economics of (re-)naming and the commercialization of place names
  • The reshaping of toponymic landscapes in uncontrolled areas and military zones
  • Critical toponymies, toponymic silencing and the contestation of (re-)naming policies. The hidden discourses of renaming. The problem of parallel names

Both single-case and comparative studies of the defined topics are welcome.
