Attendance is free, but prior registration is required.
Following a series of events within the Genealogies of Memory framework, the 2018 conference "Memory and Religion: Central and Eastern Europe in a Global Perspective" will consider the ways in which the public debate, written narratives and visual representations of the 20th-century past refer to religion. It will also seek out points of comparison and contact between Central and Eastern Europe with other regions of Europe and the rest of the world. Scholars of various disciplines dealing with memory and religion are invited to submit their paper proposals.
The keynote speakers include Aleksander Agadjanian (Russian State University for the Humanities), Irena Borowik (the Jagiellonian University) and Geneviève Zubrzycki (University of Michigan).
