Abstract [en]

In this computer age of ours, why not try and imagine a code that describes and models "Eastern Europe". Think of the code neatly typed in billions of lines and printed on crisp paper pages, bound in thick, heavy volumes solemnly lining the long shelves of the oval library in the British Museum. A matt glass roof permits grey English daylight to touch their leather backs softly. A cosy world of knowledge and order, safely contained, smoothly transmitted from one generation to another: can the writ ing of Eastern Europe ever be so comfortable?

Probably not. Something is not quite right in this dream about an established, ordered and shared meaning of "Eastern Europe".
