POSTMEMORY 2021 : POSTMEMORY AND THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD 2nd International Interdisciplinary Conference

Event Date: Feb 25, 2021 - Feb 26, 2021
Submission Deadline: Feb 12, 2021
Notification of Acceptance: Feb 15, 2021




Coined by Marianne Hirsch in the 1990s, the term postmemory by now entered various disciplines who search to understand how memory form our identity and how we position, articulate or just make sense of our place in the society and our relations with it. The term postmemory problematizes the concept of memory by bringing attention to the memories that are not exactly personal but that keep on shaping one’s life and one’s  way of seeing the world.

During this year’s conference we would like to concentrate on the phenomena of postmemory and how it keeps on shaping the contemporary world.
