The 3rd International Conference on Re-Thinking Humanities and Social Sciences is to be held at the University of Zadar, Croatia, from September 6-9, 2012. In 2012, we would like to concentrate on the politics of memory.
How does remembrance shape our links to the past? What is the link between past and present? How are narratives of past constituted, maintained or dissipated? How memory is performed? How various discourses of the past inscribe social relations and subjectivities? ...
Possible topics include:
. Film, photography and memory
. Performing arts and memory
. Literature and memory
. Sound and memory
. Rituals and memory
. Memory, public sphere and citizenship
. Cultural memory and trauma
. memory and forgetting
