This presentation outlines the main theoretical underpinnings of my PhD, which explores the post-1989 historical culture (Grever & Adriaansen, 2017) of Romania, as reflected in state education, film and public sites of remembrance. Drawing on Stuart Hall’s (1996) interpretation of Gramsci, I see schools as places where consensus is assured through the pedagogies of the state (Sriprakash et al., 2022). I am especially interested in the role of culture – particularly historical culture – in the maintenance of hegemony. I am seeking feedback on these thoughts and look forward to engaging with everyone on the relationship between hegemony and culture.
