Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies, Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool, UK, 17-19 July 2010
Liverpool Hope University invites contributions to an international colloquium dedicated to examining questions of conflict and memory, focusing on the legacies within Europe of the two global conflicts of the twentieth century and their mythologisation through processes of memorialisation. The principal aim is to explore how music, literature and other arts have mediated the experience of war and shaped historical consciousness. The keynote speaker will be Professor Jay Winter, Charles J. Stille Professor of History at Yale. The colloquium will be dedicated partly to developing a proposal for a publication.
Abstracts of c200 words should be sent by email to Dr Terry Phillips (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 28 February 2010. Places are limited, and will be allocated to enhance disciplinary, geographical, and chronological coverage.
