Trans-Atlantic Summer Institute (TASI) 2016
Reframing Mass Violence in Europe and the Americas: The Holocaust & Global Memory Constellations

June 12-19, 2016, Universität Bayreuth, Bayreuth, Germany
 

Graduate Student Fellowship Program
Application deadline: Friday, March 11, 2016
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.
