MEMORIES AND VIOLENCE: PROBLEMS AND DEBATES IN A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
Call for Papers Date:
Understanding the ways in which societies have experienced multiple forms of violence has been at the forefront of a number of academic debates in the last few decades. Of great importance to these debates is the question of how a violent past is socially articulated in the present. How do societies and specific communities render meaningful a violent past? How is the process of memorializing connected to the broader cultural and political landscape? What are the connections between memory, identity and community? Between silence and speech? This special number of Encounters will explore these questions across different regional contexts and historical experiences. Contributions that rethink the connections between memories and violence are particularly welcome. Please submit your paper (6,000 to 10,000 words) electronically in MS Word format to firstname.lastname@example.org by August 1st, 2011. For further information see: http://encounters.zu.ac.ae.
