Doktorandenseminar "Reframing Mass Violence in Europe and the Americas. The Holocaust and Global Memory Constellations"


Transatlantic Summer Institute – Graduate Student Fellowship Program
Universität Bayreuth (June 12-19, 2016)
Application deadline: Friday April 1st, 2016

Faculty: Bernt Schnettler (U. Bayreuth), Alejandro Baer (U. Minnesota)

This Summer Institute’s objective is to explore the particular developments and transnational entanglements of memory discourses in societies revisiting their legacies of large-scale political violence. This entails processes of  re-interpretation, renaming and reframing of a) the atrocities themselves and b) the (often questioned) transitional justice mechanisms that were adopted in their aftermaths. We place special emphasis on the analyses of practices, rituals and social events that help creating, supporting and disseminating social memories related to mass violence.
We look forward to assembling a group of emerging scholars who bring  interdisciplinary commitments and concerns to their work, and who are  interested in sharing their work with their peers internationally.
