Abstract

In my contribution, I revisit the tumultuous events of Fall 1989 and their subsequent impact on universities in the former GDR. In particular, I am concerned with the problematic concept of Abwicklung, as the "integration" of the East German university system into the Western system was termed, and with its implementation: the stifling of academic grass-roots reform initiatives in the East, the dismissal of women who had been stuck in the middle ranks of academe, and the sluggish pace of curricular reform.
