Shadow Memorial Diplomacy: The Ronald Reagan Centennial Year in Central and Eastern Europe

Introduction Despite the great volume of scholarship written about the 40th president of the United States, few scholars have concentrated exclusively on the memorialization of Ronald Reagan. Policy-focused studies have tended to evaluate Ronald Reagan’s legacy as president ( Schaller 2011 ; Heclo 2008 ). Other scholars have measured the rhetoric about Reagan as a symbol of U.S. conservative ideology and policy by comparing it with the president’s actual record in politics and policy ( Longley et al. 2007 ). Closer to the topic, a number of studies of Reagan

Memory, (anti) monuments and commemoration Individual and collective memories are selective by nature: actual memory is constantly shaped or formed by one

Memorial Trees in The Czech Landscape

Abstract

The aim of the article is to assess the extensive database of memorial trees operated by AOPK CR (Nature Conservation Agency of the Czech Republic) and to determine the occurrence and abundance of the most monumental trees in chosen biogeographical units, (altitudinal vegetation zone, altitude, ecological series (Buček & Lacina, 2002), province, subprovince, bioregion (Culek et. al., 1996)) and the maximum size and age they can reach in these units.

This assessment of monumental trees at a national level was made possible based on the provision of two extensive databases containing the information about the trees (AOPK CR Database of Memorial Trees) and about the biogeographical units of the Czech Republic (Biogeographical Registry of the Czech Republic). Basic unit of both databases is cadastral area and the fact allowed to link the data and to evaluate them. The occurrence rate of memorial trees and species in individual cadastral areas and in biogeographical regions is presented in the map outputs.

Memorial of Vasil Biľak: Did the Truth Really Remained Truth?

Abstract

The paper deals with the memorial of Vasil Biľak that was unveiled in Krajná Bystrá in Eastern Slovakia in February 2015. However, Vasil Biľak was considered as a very negative figure for his participation at the Warsaw Pact occupation in 1968. The paper points out some gaps in the remembrance policy in Slovakia after the fall of communism and also some inconsistency that accompanied the process of the coming to terms with the totalitarian history of Slovakia.

Diversity and Community Structure of Oribatid Mites (Acari, Oribatei) at Memorial Complexes of a Megapolis

Abstract

In different types of substrate (soil, litter, lichens and mosses) collected at three memorial complexes (cemeteries) of Kyiv (Ukraine), 70 species from 57 genera, 34 families of oribatid mites were found. A few eurytopic species capable of tolerance to different types of pollution make up an essential part in each species complex. The species diversity and complexity of oribatid community structure at researched areas increased with distance from the city center. There was no direct relation between the degree of dominance of most common species and the cemetery’s relative remoteness from the center of the city.
