Call for Papers: Mnemonics Summer School 2019: Memory and Activism
Utrecht, 18 – 20 September 2019
Deadline for Applications: 1 March 2019
The annual Mnemonics Summer School serves as an interactive forum in which junior and senior memory scholars meet in an informal and convivial setting to discuss each other’s work and to reflect on new developments in the field of memory studies. The eighth Mnemonics: Network for Memory Studies summer school will be hosted by the Utrecht Forum for Memory Studies, Wednesday 18-Friday 20 September, at Utrecht University, The Netherlands. The 2019 topic will be Memory and Activism. In recent years scholars have increasingly recognised that some practices of cultural memory look as much to the future as to the past; and that the commemoration of past events can be intimately linked to attempts to change the present and create a different future. The 2019 PhD summer school will explore further, both theoretically and through the study of particular cases, the interplay between memory and activism.
