“Participatory Memory Practices: Connectivities, Empowerment, and Recognition of Cultural Heritages in Mediatized Memory Ecologies”
The conference addresses a multidisciplinary and international group of scholars and experts from memory institutions, civil society, policy makers, social entrepreneurs, the coding community and creative industries.
The goal is to collect contributions by the participants and implement a socially, inclusive public memory. To reach this purpose it is required to develop a comprehensive understanding on concepts, practices, and media infrastructures that facilitate the partaking of people from various backgrounds in the heritage building work of memory institutions (libraries, archives, and museums).
The Innovative Training Network “Participatory Memory Practices. Concepts, strategies, and media infrastructures for envisioning socially inclusive potential futures of European Societies through culture” (POEM) will provide this comprehensive knowledge by studying in practice theoretical approaches on how connectivities are built by institutions, people and groups, and media infrastructures for a socially inclusive, participatory heritage work.
Proposals should be sent until September 15th 2018 to poem.gwiss@uni-hamburg.de.
They should not exceed a length of 600 words and include bios of max. 200 words.
