Genealogies of Memory 2020: Call for Papers update!
Due to the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus epidemic, we have decided to introduce a new conference format. In November 2020, we will organise eight online sessions instead of a traditional conference. The extended submission deadline is 21 June 2020.
The 10th edition of our project aims at revisiting the interconnection between national, transnational and global frameworks of Holocaust Memory Studies, with special emphasis on local historical experiences and narratives emerging in Central and Eastern Europe. The conveners of this year’s conference are Dr Małgorzata Pakier (European Network Remembrance and Solidarity, Warsaw) and Dr Małgorzata Wosińska (Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw).
The conference will be organised as a series of online sessions broadcast on YouTube and Facebook, with the following schedule:
4 November 2020, 15:00–18:30 hrs. CET (Wednesday) – Session One
5 November 2020, 15:00–18:30 hrs. CET (Thursday) – Session Two

A post-conference publication is planned in the form of a collected volume by a prestigious international academic publisher. The conference also aims at strengthening academic exchange, in particular by creating opportunities for young scholars to network with more established researchers and academics.
