"Remembering Katyn" - seminar 2/5
"Genealogies of Memory" seminar and discussion on the recently published book "Remembering Katyn" (Etkind, Finnin et al., Polity Press 2012). The book explores the legacy of Katyn through the memory cultures of seven countries: Belarus, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic States. It shows how Katyn both incites nationalist sentiments in Eastern Europe and fosters an emerging cosmopolitan memory of Soviet terror.
Invited guests of the seminar, participants of "Memory at War" research team:
dr. Uilleam Blacker
dr. Matilda Mroz
dr. Rory Finnin
Chairs: dr. Joanna Wawrzyniak and dr. Małgorzata Pakier
