Submit papers for Historical Justice and Memory Network 2015 Conference!
The 2015 conference aims to explore issues relating to memory, victimhood and violence. Possible themes include the changing nature and identity of victims and the theme of contested victimization, with a particular interest in topics that explore the anniversaries of historical violence and the way such events are remembered. Papers are invited that reflect on how these events are being remembered, on the evolution and politics of these memories.
Each December, the Historical Justice and Memory Network holds a multi-day conference that brings affiliates – scholars and practitioners who work in the field of historical dialogue – together. These individuals have the opportunity to present their projects, scholarly papers, and case studies. The conference provides a space for networking, opportunities to share knowledge and experiences, and establishes AHDA’s identity as a forum for historical dialogue. As an annual event, the conference is also used to explore different topics and challenges within the field, and to reach out to a wide cross-section of practitioners and scholars working in the field.
