Second Generation Network Second Generation Trust
The Institute of Contemporary History and Wiener Library
Since the first UK conference almost a decade ago, there has been much research concerning the issues and themes that have impacted on the second generation – namely, the descendants of Holocaust survivors and refugees.
The conference, to be held on 29 June 2003 in Central London, will offer a broad overview of topics through keynotes and multi-disciplinary workshop presentations. It is aimed at those who have been involved in the area for some time, as well as those who have only recently become aware of their connection to the issues.
This call for workshop presentations offers an opportunity for potential presenters to outline areas of interest and expertise, and encourages a wide intellectual and culturally diverse approach. Presentations will be selected by a panel, and must follow the indicated guidelines.
Suggested themes include:
Artistic representation and expression
connection and relevance to contemporary refugee issues
dialogue between the generations and others
religion and religious identity
Workshop duration will be 90 minutes. Workshop presentations must be submitted in abstract form by email only, by 9 March 2003, and include:
A proposal abstract, including title and outline of presentation - 400 words maximum
A brief biographical sketch - 100 words maximum
Full contact details, including email, address, telephone number
Two workshop options are available:
Paper presentation suitable for a 25 minute session; the workshop will be shared by three people, with the selection panel placing presentations together
Experiential workshop led by one/two facilitators; duration of workshop 90 minutes
Please email proposal via the email address below.
All those submitting presentation outlines will receive a reply by late-March 2003. Workshop presenters will pay for all travel and accommodation costs
