    Looking back thirty years after the fall of the iron curtain, Francis Fukuyama’s thesis of “the end of history“ (1992) – that after the fall of socialism, free-market liberal democracy has on out and will become the world’s final form of human government – has evidently not come true. Instead, history has continued to evolve in multiple directions, destabilizing and leaving behind many old certainties, fragmenting instead into multiple histories. Many of these developments, while highly selfconscious of time and temporality in their self-declared afterologies, have meanwhile developed historicities of their own. Hence, rather than evoking the end of History, this lecture series invites us to take stock of what has come after, and become of, the multiple
    afterologies at histories’ multiple ends: what post-1989 worlds have been made and are in the making, and what are anthropology’s contributions in charting these shifting terrains?
