[UPDATE] The Politics of Memory, September 6 – 9, 2012
full name / name of organization:
Re-Thinking Humanities and Social Science/University of Zadar, Croatia
The 3rd International Conference on Re-Thinking Humanities and Social Science is to be held at the University of Zadar, Croatia, from September 6 – 9, 2012. The conference has taken place every year since 2010.
The conference is an invaluable opportunity for meeting, exchanging and debating current topics in humanities and social sciences.
In 2012 we would like to concentrate on the politics of memory.
The Politics of Memory
How does remembrance shape our links to the past? What is the link between past and present? How are narratives of past constituted, maintained or dissipated? How is memory performed? How various discourses of the past inscribe social relations and subjectivities? How are our innermost emotions, desires and fantasies articulated with a discursive space of memory in the present? What is the link between communication technologies and the ways past is represented? How are we to understand various technologies of memory?
Possible topics include:
• Film, photography and memory
Proposals are invited from scholars from different fields and disciplines of humanities and social sciences for individual papers (30 minutes including discussion time).
Abstracts should be in Word or RTF formats and include the following: a) author(s), b) affiliation, c) e-mail address, d) title of abstract, e) body of abstract.
