“Genealogies of Memory” is a programme led by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity (ENRS) which aims at facilitating the academic exchange between Central and East European scholars of individual and collective memory, and intends to promote the region’s study of memory among the broader international academic community.

They are holding a conference within the “Genealogies of Memory” programme in Warsaw, 6-8 December 2017, aimed at promoting an interdisciplinary discussion of the relationships between image, history and memory. The conference will be the 7th edition of their “Genealogies of Memory in Central and Eastern Europe” programme.

The “Genealogies of Memory” project are welcoming paper proposals from the fields of art history, history, sociology, cultural studies, political science and others for the conference. The papers should address images in their various roles: as witnesses to history, as means of materializing memories, as active creators of history or as producers of the contents of memory.

To apply to present a paper at the conference, please send (a) your abstract (300 words) along with your presentation title and if possible the panel topic, as well as (b) a short bio to: genealogies@enrs.eu.
