Macau Ricci Institute will be hosting the “History and Memory” symposium in Macau on December 1-3, 2005.
Macau has been a place for true and uninterrupted encounter between the West and China for the past 450 years, and, as such, is a “place of memory” where remnants of history can still be found everywhere. We are therefore confident that this symposium will serve as a bridge between cultures, historical paths and schools of thought, bringing in elements of comparison between China and the rest of the world not only to illustrate differences but also to uncover elements of commonality and narrative of shared experiences.
The main axes of this symposium will be:
The liaisons between History and Memory: Epistemological issues;
Questions of method: On the sources of History and towards an interdisciplinary approach;
Selecting and constructing memories;
Teaching history and preserving memory;
The “duty of Memory”: For whom and to what end?
