“Competing Memories” – International Conference

Conference on Competing Memories (see more here)

29 October – 1 November 2013
University of Amsterdam & VU University Amsterdam

This interdisciplinary conference critically analyses how to present competing memories and narratives on a same site? In addition to the EU’s dynamics and clashes of memory of WWII’s terrorscapes, the conference will broaden its focus to relate both the origins and afterlives of Europe’s Age of Extremes (Hobsbawm) to the (post) colonial turn (in/against Holocaust studies), Dutch slavery/Indonesia debate, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and the Near East Spring revolutions and the politics of identity and occupation, and the theoretical implications of totalitarianism, occupation, terror, mass violence, trauma, and more in general the Century of the Camp (Bauman).
