Abstract: The paper explores the oft-forgoten bottom-up political processes and issues at play in rural contexts in Central and Eastern Europe. It provides analytical summary of the debates about post-socialist 'transition' and provides several lines of theoretically engaged enquiry into rural change in these areas, including the focus on memory and temporalities of change, politics of identity, materiality and the making of rural places. In its conclusion the paper attempts to provide connections beyond the local approaches to understanding regional change and answer the question "why study post-socialist ruralities".
