Publications, recordings and other outputs

An overview of what I have written and published (as sociologist) or recorded and released (as musician). Simply, all public "outputs" of my work. When technically feasible and legally possible, I will add full texts and, in respective parts of the musical section of this web, musical samples in mp3.

KONOPÁSEK, Z. (1999): V čem spočívá "pravda" opoziční smlouvy? [What is the truth of The Opposition Treaty?] 2 p. [Unpublished newspaper manuscript]

::::

This unpublished newspaper article comments on a political pact or treaty that was signed by Social Democracts and the major right-wing opposition political party in 1998 in the Czech Republic. The treaty was to "stabilize" the political scene in the country (Social Democrats lead a minority government); but many critics suspected that, instead, it was a hidden coaliltion, enabling the two seemingly opposing parties to take full and unchallegable control over the country. The Opposition Treaty became the document that spoiled the political culture in the country and that was "behind" practically all negative phenomena. I try to interpret the Treaty from the point of view of actor-network theory, criticizing the causal explanations that took the Treaty as the origin of a political tragedy.

This paper proposes a sociology of state socialism. It does so by discussing the place of state socialism within the debates on modernity and postmodernity and reassessing the possibilities of so-called biographical research in the field of post-communist studies. The paper also outlines a theoretical and analytical framework for making the communists[a] power problematic from a sociological point of view. Such a perspective suggests that the power of the communists is not taken - explicitly or implicitly - as something that naturally explains the logic of life under the communist regime; on the contrary, it is presented as something that needs to be explained. As such, this approach is inspired by contemporary sociology of science, particularly by the work of Bruno Latour. In doing so, the paper hopes to achieve one important side-effect, namely to (re)establish the phenomena of state socialism as a topic worthy of general sociological attention.
