Call for Papers: Second Annual Conference of the Memory Studies Association

Copenhagen, 14-16 December 2017

Deadline for submissions: 01 July 2017

This conference wants to address “memory unbound” as well as specific personal, familial or national memories and their mutual interrelations. It seeks answers to questions such as: How can memory studies continue to conceptualize the deterritorialized, fluid and transnational aspects of collective memory without abolishing the validity of the founding ideas of memory studies? Acknowledging the fact that memories relate not only to the presence of the past but also to imaginations of the future, how can we define the productive power of memory? Should memory studies merely be perceived as descriptive or should it also have an impact on actual political debates?

Confirmed keynote speakers and participants of this conference include: Marianne Hirsch (Columbia University), filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer (“The Act of Killing” and “The Look of Silence”), Jan Gross (Princeton University), as well as Ann Rigney (University of Utrecht), Fionnuala Dillane (University College of Dublin), Stef Craps (University of Ghent), Daniel Levy (Stony Brook University, New York), Siobhan Kattago (University of Tartu), Astrid Erll (Goethe-University Frankfurt), Jeffrey Olick (University of Virginia), Emilie Pine (University College of Dublin), Barbara Törnquist-Plewa (University of Lund), William Hirst (The New School, New York), Wulf Kansteiner (University of Aarhus), Silke Arnold-de Simine (Birkbeck, London).

09 March 2017, 7 pm

On 9 March, Dr. Thomas Burkhalter will give a lecture at the Institute for Social Research (IfS), titled “norient.com – Multimodale Musikforschung”. His lecture reflects contemporary global music, sounds and noises from the perspective of musicethnology and memory studies. The musical works presented by Burkhalter experiment with new possibilities in music production offered by the age of the internet and show new spaces beyond the confines of commercialism, propaganda, and bigotry. They foresee a changing geography of multi-layered modernities, far beyond old Eurocentric cultural concepts.

Thomas Burkhalter is an ethnomusicologist, music journalist, and cultural producer from Switzerland. He works as a researcher at the University of Basel and the University of Arts Bern. As director of the Norient Musikfilm Festival, documentary filmmaker and audio-visual performer, he places emphasis on transdisciplinary approaches between theory and practice.

Workshop: Beschreiben oder Erzählen?

18 April 2017, 12-16 Uhr, IG 1.414

Die Frage “Beschreiben oder Erzählen?” ist eine Herausforderung. Sie regt an darüber nachzudenken, wie die (Kultur-)Wissenschaften, aber auch Literatur und Kunst, eine Repräsentationsautorität ausüben, wenn sie Kulturen, soziale Gruppen und Personen darstellen. Was bedeutet es, wenn durch Beschreibungen Fragmentierungen und Brüche in den Blick kommen, während durch Erzählungen eher Sinnzusammenhänge gestiftet werden?
Der Workshop mit begrenzter Teilnehmer*innen*zahl richtet sich an fortgeschrittene Studierende und Promovierende. Er besteht in seinem 1. Teil aus einer Einführungsvorlesung, im 2. Teil aus einer Lektürediskussion. Für den 3. Teil können Fragen vorher eingereicht werden, über die z.B. konkrete Anwendungsbezüge zu den eigenen Arbeiten hergestellt werden können.

Visit From the Warwick Memory Group: Two talks on contemporary transcultural memory media

22 November 2016, Goethe University Frankfurt

Maria Roca Lizarazu is a final-year PhD candidate in German Studies at the University of Warwick. Her doctoral project focuses on representations of trauma in German- and Austrian-Jewish Holocaust literature by the so-called “generation after”. In her talk “Thomas Mann in Furs: Remediations of Sado-Masochism in Maxim Biller’s Im Kopf von Bruno Schulz”, she argued that Im Kopf von Bruno Schulz invokes the sadomasochistic constellation to reflect on and illustrate Biller’s negative take on the German-Jewish symbiosis.

Rebekah Vince‘s doctoral research, funded by the Wolfson Foundation, focuses on the historical narratives of the Holocaust and colonialism in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as portrayed in contemporary North African fiction written in French. In “Unsettling Memories: the (European) Holocaust and the (Arab) Jew in Israel”, she employed Levy and Sznaider’s three historical stages in memory politics and A. Assmann’s models for dealing with a traumatic past in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as portrayed in texts by Valérie Zenatti, including her translation of Holocaust survivor Aharon Appelfeld’s autobiography.

Michael Rothberg is the leading Holocaust theorist in the United States and Saul Friedländer’s successor in the prestigious chair in Holocaust studies at UCLA. The pioneer of a post-colonial approach to the Shoah, he has, for example, explored the meaning of the Holocaust for the civil rights movement. His latest research addresses the role of the Holocaust in the lives of Europe’s migrants. What does the memory of the Shoah mean for Turkish-Germans? And what forms of solidarity could exist between Muslim and Jewish communities? In conversation with Wien Museum director Matti Bunzl.

Conference: Locating and Dis-Locating Memory

The final ISTME conference “Locating and Dis-Locating Memory: In Search of Transcultural Memory in Europe” will take place at University College Dublin from 1-3 September 2016. Focus on the ways in which memory is located and dislocated through processes of production, transmission and reception, it will revolve around the following questions: Given the dynamism of memory at local, regional and transnational levels, how, when and where is memory located and defined? What are the ethical challenges in these acts of location and definition? What are the ways in which memory is continuously dislocated, via mediation, remediation, consensus-making and conflict? In an age of mass migration, how are memories produced by communities that are themselves dislocated? Is memory the object that is being located or dislocated, or is it a signifier of the location and dislocation of particular memory communities? Is the tension between location and dislocation central to the practice of memory? What new methodological approaches to memory studies can usefully be brought to bear on these questions?

Keynote speakers are Astrid Erll (Goethe-Universität, Frankfurt), Michael Rothberg (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Francoise Vergès (Collège D’études Mondiales, Paris).

On Thursday, 12 May, Prof. Mala Pandurang (Dr. BMN College, Mumbai) will visit Goethe University and give a lecture titled “Life Narratives and the Sculpting of Gendered Trans-Regional East African Asian Memories”. The talk will focus on experiences of women migrants from the Indian subcontinent to East Africa from early 20th century onward. There are very few official records available, and hence, a reconstruction of their life histories is largely predicated on biographical accounts and fictional narratives that are derived from familial memories.

The lecture is presented by the Frankfurt Research Programme AFRASO.

Welche Bedeutung haben Globalisierung und Migration für das kulturelle Gedächtnis? Welche Erinnerungen bringen Migrantinnen und Migranten mit nach Deutschland? Wie werden Erinnerungen geteilt? Wer partizipiert an der deutschen Erinnerungskultur? Der Vortrag „Vom kulturellen Gedächtnis zur transkulturellen Erinnerung: Neue Perspektiven auf die Bibliothek der Alten in der Migrationsgesellschaft“ von Astrid Erll beleuchtet diese Fragen zum Gedächtnis einer ‚diversen Gesellschaft’ vor dem Hintergrund neuerer Entwicklungen in der kulturwissenschaftlichen Gedächtnisforschung.
