This talk argues for the development of a more
rigorous transnational methodology that rethinks the
tendency toward ‘methodological nationalism’ often found in
research on postsocialism. It does so by calling for an expansion of
the study of former socialist countries to also include the dynamic Cold War relationships between the so-called second and third world, between socialist Europe and postcolonial nation-states in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
