Summary/Abstract: In the last two decades the research in Gender History has intensified in countries of the former Soviet block. The potency of gender related historical research in terms of adding new approaches to mainstream political history, and especially its position at the interface of social sciences was (and still is) evaluated very positively. Particularly in East-European countries, there were expectations of creating an institutional basis for this sub-discipline, and hopes for new cooperation and exchange with regions, where Women’s and Gender History have a longer tradition. New gender specific projects, results and impulses were being anticipated.
