Please have a look at these interesting opportunities!

  • Second annual conference of the Memory Studies Association

The Memory Studies Association’s second annual conference will take place in Copenhagen, from 13 to 16 December 2027. It provides a forum for PhD students to explore the connection of their research to Memory Studies. MSA Forward offers a platform for exchanging ideas with a cohort of early researchers, learning about recent developments in Memory Studies and interacting with key academics in the field. Through flash presentations, PhD students will have the opportunity to discuss the specific ways their research connects with Memory Studies and to receive feedback from established scholars. MSA Forward will host a career café and a PhD dinner before the conference begins, and a methodology workshop during the conference itself.

The organisers invite proposals for 5 minute flash presentations which explore the role of Memory Studies in individual PhD projects.

Proposals of no more than 200 words as well as a short biography should be sent before 1 August. For organisational reasons, please make sure that you only upload one file (proposal & bio in one document). The organisers are currently looking into funding for travel stipends. More information will be provided upon acceptance.

  • European Network Remembrance and Solidarity international conference

The European Network Remembrance and Solidarity in collaboration with several partners will organise an international academic conference themed “Central and Eastern Europe after the First World War”. This will take place in Berlin from 31 January to 2 February, 2018.

The conference will prelude an open-air exhibition, organised by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity, presenting the aftermath of the First World War.

The exhibition will be opened in November 2018 and will travel to a number of European countries in the following years. In the early years after the First World War (1918-1923), political, military, cultural, social and economic developments consolidated to a high degree in Eastern Europe. Therefore the main aim of the conference is to present the aftermath of the First World War, and the making of Eastern and Central Europe understood as a New Europe.

Find the call for papers here: http://enrs.eu/docs/exhibition_ww1/CfP_Central-Eastern%20Europe_after_the_I_World_War_4.07.2017.pdf. Proposals can be sent to Dr. Bartosz Dziewanowski-Stefańczyk (bartosz.dziewanowski@enrs.eu) or Dr. Burkhard Olschowsky (Burkhard.Olschowsky@bkge.uni-oldenburg.de).
