Description

CFP Issue 18 Digital Trauma in Eastern and Central Europe

Submissions are invited to a special issue on Digital Trauma in Eastern and Central Europe. The special issue, edited by Anna Menyhért and Mykola Makhortykh, looks into the ways in which cultural and literary trauma is processed in the framework of digital memory and media studies. By analyzing how the 21st century digital environment influences both personal and collective trauma processing in local, national and trans-national communities within Europe, the issue strives to contribute to a better understanding of the link of current cultural developments to the collective traumas of the past in post-socialist countries.

The special issue derives its rationale from the ‘Trauma Studies in the Digital Age’ workshop, which was organized in Amsterdam at UvA and NIAS, in the framework of Anna Menyhért’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie project. We encourage further submissions, and suggest that those interested have a look at the project’s website, including the workshop, to have a better idea of possible themes: http://www.traprodig.humanities.uva.nl

Please express your interest by 5 August 2017 and/or submit your contribution by 15 October 2017 by contacting Mykola Makhortykh at m.makhortykh@uva.nl.

Religion’s role and influence in the public sphere rises and falls in all socioeconomic contexts – pre-industrial, industrial, and post-industrial – something the inhabitants of Central Europe have once more become aware of, whether from a global or a local perspective. The mission and impact of religion are not necessarily connected and contingent on the growth of human knowledge, rationality, or technology. In fact, the retreat of religion from the public space and the privatization of religious values and practises did not imitate the processes of industrialization, urbanization, or political processes and changes. A critical view of the secularization paradigm is thus an integral part of current academic discussions. These are the perspectives through which the theme of the next Střed/Centre issue would like to examine the role of religion and the development and trajectory of the historiography of religion.
The field of inquiry should not be limited only to traditional institutional entities, but should also focus on smaller and peripheral religious communities and sects (spiritism, atheist movements). With the theme of this issue we would like to go beyond the traditional and dominant topics of the establishment of national churches, political catholicism, diplomatic relations, and biographies of religious community leaders towards a consideration of religious thought and practise within regions, industrial areas, among social groups, generations, and in terms of gender. Also welcome are contributions that connect social and cultural history with religious history and other historical and social sciences. We will appreciate contributions on how society was shaped according to the religious and confessional principle, the relationship between religion and violence, the transfer of modern religious movements and currents, reactions to social and economic problems and changes, or different types of religiosity (among workers, women, young people, veterans, in pastors’ appeals to industrial society, the life of smaller and marginal religious communities and sects). We are also interested in how religious motifs and practices are imprinted upon the relationships that form identities, everyday life, inform decision-making processes, or the methodological reflection of the (Central) European historiography of religion.
