This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore methodological and practical aspects of history as expression of memory and memorization of history in the text, how history locates between historical and literary genres, and how distinguish portrayal methods of history in different cultures.
History is the significant factor, which impacts in the content and forms of representation of the text, both scientific and artistic. Comparative investigation of different periods and locations, such as The Great Migration of early medieval period and migration of XX century, followed after collapse of modern empires; or disillusionment of newly emerged states in yesterday’s ideologies, icons and attempts to reconsider past, brought to parallels in conceptualization of past, changing the interpretation of past, or in other words, history of different period and by different people. In this context, one of the substantial issues of the day is to what extent chronicle or historical textbook are documentary, and to what extent imagination in literature and visual arts is data garbling and could be considered ethical.
