This year, the European Union has been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome. The inaptness of the logo marking the occasion, 'Together since 1957' highlights what can be seen as one of the key obstacles to the emergence of a European identity: the lack of a common history. Whereas collective memories of war and destruction provided post-war western Europe with an important impetus to push forward the European project, collective memories in the EU of 27 countries are arguably characterised more by diversity and fragmentation.
The forthcoming international and interdisciplinary conference “The Dynamics of Memory in the New Europe” will examine the dynamics and landscapes of memory in contemporary Europe.
