Memories of Slavery and Colonization: Historiography, Arts, and Museums
University of Maine (Le Mans, France)
9-10 November 2017
This conference aims to promote a comparative approach to memories of slavery and colonization: we intend to question memory processes through representations of the past in contemporary arts (literature, photography, plastic arts, films) and in-depth studies of their historiographical discourse. Participants will examine the use of images of racial violence, their insertion in artistic and photographic projects, and their narrativisation in literature (novel, life writing, autobiography, biography). They will address the ethical issues underlying the appropriation of these images in a variety of artistic endeavours and analyze their impact on subsequent generations through comparing documents from different periods.
6th CGS Interdisciplinary Conference
“Transitive Justice. Creating Norms and System Change”
7-8 July 2017, Toruń (Poland)
Changes develop equally innovative and destructive potential. Transformation processes can be interpreted as progress, modernization and advancement, but as well as decline, degeneration and disaster. The deconstruction of acknowledged normality are always moments of great social intensity, which need collective commentary and classification in terms of remembrance culture. The elites perceive the function of mediator between social event and its interpretation in the sense of “positivity of discourse” (Foucalt).
On behalf of the organizing committee, we are delighted to welcome you to SMBE 2017 – the Annual Meeting of the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution.
