INAUGURAL SYMPOSIUM OF THE MSA NORDIC
29-30 October 2020, University of Copenhagen
CALL FOR PAPERS
The MSA Nordic is the regional network of the Memory Studies Association (MSA) in Northern Europe. The MSA is a global professional association for Memory Studies scholars, as well as those who are active in museums, memorial institutions, archives, the arts and other fields engaged in remembrance.
The MSA Nordic aims to bring together scholars of memory studies across Northern Europe in order to share research ideas and results and create regional collaborations and networks. At this inaugural meeting, we invite memory scholars and researchers working on memory questions within related disciplines (oral history, heritage studies, history, ethnography etc.) to join us to present ongoing work or discuss research ideas.
We plan to organize panels around the following themes
– Administrations of memory
– Post-colonial memory in the North and North Atlantic region
– Migration and transnational memory in Europe
– Possibilities and limitations of “prosthetic memory”
– Teaching history and memory
