Transitions of Memory International Conference

Share

Fondazione Fossoli promotes the International Conference titled “Transitions of Memory. Narratives of Violence in the 20th and 21th Centuries” planned for October 2021.
The conference invites scholars from all disciplines interested in the topics of memory to confront the subject of the memory of violence, its stratifications, narratives and transitions during the 20th century and up to the present from a multidisciplinary and comparative point of view. Insights are requested that relate to the different methods and multiple tools for recounting a traumatic event, from historical reconstruction to representation in artistic and architectural form, from the collection and presentation of testimonies to the use of media and new technologies. The papers can focus on Italian or foreign experiences – even making comparisons – and consider one or more aspects related to history, memory, the organisation of space, function and their narratives and representations, using a mono- or multidisciplinary approach.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1 June 2021
