Danimarca, 10-12 marzo "Matchpoints Seminar 2012 Conflict in Memory: Interpersonal and Intergenerational Remembering of War, Conflict and Transition"


War, conflicts and transitions have always played a significant role in defining communal identity, often with reference to events that happened centuries ago.

The role of passing on collective memories of these types of events has become even more complex in a globalizing world, where new configurations of cosmopolitan memories challenge more locally and nationally based memories.

The many aspects of societies’ remembering and forgetting call for interdisciplinary cooperation.

This conference brings together the fields of history, psychology, literature, and cultural studies and presents new research on how memories of war, conflict and transition are passed on from generation to generation and how these processes transform and shape identities.
