Dear colleagues,

We have extended the call for submissions to our one-day, postgraduate interdisciplinary workshop until the end of July. This is a perfect opportunity to send us your abstracts!!

We have five small travel bursaries (£100) are available that will be allocated to five selected papers. 

The selected papers will be announced on the 18th of August 2019.

This workshop explores the role of memory as a form of resistance in conflicts. It aims to widen the conversation about how individuals, groups, communities, civil or state organisations, and societies understand and actively engage with resistance through remembering and/or forgetting.  In societies embedded in conflict, the accounts represented, reconstructed, and narrated through the recollection of memory, may become a form of resistance. These initiatives might be promoted by individuals or groups; from spontaneous stimuli to a well-developed strategy aiming to portray this element of resistance. 

The application is open to PhD researchers and Early Career Researchers from all disciplines. We particularly encourage interdisciplinary, creative, international and intersectional research.  In this workshop, we are inviting all range of creative inputs, from academic papers, and poster presentations to photo exhibitions, videos, documentaries and/or other forms of arts.

Please do get in touch ( if you have any ideas or questions you would like to discuss. 

If you know of any institution that would be interested, please do feel free to share the call.  

We are looking forward to receiving all the submissions!

Warm regards,

Organising Committee
