Developing from the work of the Belfast-Sarajevo Initiative (2007-2010), the School of Creative Arts at Queen's, in association with the British Academy, is hosting this conference to examine how theatre, performance, film, and the visual arts address post-conflict situations. We will consider proposals that focus on any post-conflict city, or region, and intend the Cities of Memory project to encourage interdisciplinary discussion on the contemporary arts and their relation to issues of testimony, witnessing, forgetting, representation, healing, reconciliation, agency, and metaphor.

In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).
