CfP: Culture of Remembrance and Remembrance of Culture

We are happy to invite you to take part in the student section of the international academic symposium ‘Culture of Remembrance and Remembrance of Culture’, which is to take place at Bologna University campus in Forli between November 13th and November 15th 2019.


The conference stands in connection with the European Remembrance project ‘A Game-Changing Year 1968’. The mission of the project is to commemorate the Prague Spring events as a symbol of the pursuit of the totalitarian regime’s democratization which had been suppressed by force as well as consecutive acquiescence. We attempt to dismiss national boundaries while perceiving the recent European past, thus allowing historical memory research to further proliferate.


We invite you to submit a contribution on the topics concerning the crucial milestones of European remembrance in a form of a short presentation or a poster, with the latter being the preferred modality for students and young researchers.


In particular, we encourage you to submit contributions linked to the presentation of yet undisclosed or unpublicized historical sources (archival documents, eye-witnesses’ narratives, photos) on the European remembrance issues, as well as their short analyses/interpretations. The event’s working language is English.


Applicants are requested to send an e-mail to, with the following information: name, surname, affiliation, current position, title of the paper. The abstract with the word limit of 300 words is required to be attached as a separate pdf file. Deadline for abstract submission: September 20th, 2019. For the successful applicants, approved by the organizational committee, travelling and/or accommodation expenses will be fully covered by the organizer.
