Cultures of Memory



Join us for our captivating webinar series dedicated to exploring diverse cultures of memory. Memory culture is rich and complex, encompassing not only how people preserve and transmit their history but also how they interpret and commemorate past events and their significance for contemporary societies.

Through a series of interactive discussions, lectures, and presentations, we will delve into various aspects of memory culture. We will explore diverse practices, from local traditions and commemorations to the creation of memorial sites, and the use of literature, art, and film as tools for conveying history and shaping identity. We will analyze how memory culture influences our communities, our values, and our understanding of the world.

We will also examine issues related to memory conflict, such as differences in historical interpretation among various social groups and the role they play in reconciliation and dialogue-building processes. Additionally, we will explore how memory culture can be used as a tool for fostering social bonds and promoting understanding and tolerance.

Join our webinar series to discover the fascinating world of memory cultures, delve into the intricacies of contemporary heritage, and participate in inspiring discussions with experts from various fields of academia and culture.
