The GDR Today IV is the fourth in a series of postgraduate conferences, with previous conferences taking place in Birmingham, Bristol and Bangor. They are designed to give a new generation of researchers working on the history, culture and memory of the GDR a supportive forum for presenting both work in progress and formal papers and the previous conferences have recently culminated in an edited volume by 3 of the founder postgraduate participants (The GDR Today, ed. Stephan Ehrig, Marcel Thomas and David Zell). I have been involved in all previous conferences as panel chair / discussant. and on this occasion I contributed to the final round table discussion of senior academics in the field.
