Inaugural Lecture: After the Iron Curtain

The full film of Professor Mark Stephen’s inaugural lecture is now available. On Wednesday 30th of April 2014, Mark spoke about the complex picture of post-communist housing in a variety of former ‘Eastern Bloc’ countries.

Mark previously wrote about his work on post-communist housing on this blog in his post: “Lifelong Learning from the East
