Memory Policy in Theoretical and Practical Dimensions 2020


The objectives of the work plan for an inter-university cooperation within the CENTRAL project ‚Post-Conflict Constellations: Institutionalisation of Memory in Central and Southeastern Europe‘ is a final workshop at the Eötvös Loránd University – ELTE in Budapest, which will contribute to the exchange of knowledge, support junior researchers in setting up new research groups, and promote multilateral cooperation between top academic centers in Central Europe

with a prospect of a project proposal at the European level (e.g. a joint Visegrad+ Grand project and/or a ERASMUS+ Strategic Partnership/KA2).

The planned workshop within the CENTRAL project entitled ‚Memory policy in theoretical and practical dimensions. Mass violence in the collective memory of the peoples of Eastern Europe and the Balkans (1945-2020)‘ will take place at ELTE, April 23-25, 2020. At the event organised by Doc. Ildikó Barna (ELTE) in cooperation with Prof. Christian Voß (HU), Dr. Katherina Tyran (Uni Wien) and Doc. Kateřina Králova (UK) will give the opportunity to present research to both senior and junior academics, including PhD students. At the same time, the junior participants will be encouraged to cooperate with their counterparts at the partner universities and prepare participation in joint panels for prestigious international conferences and joint publication outputs.
