We write to you as a gentle reminder that we have opened the call for submissions to our one-day, postgraduate interdisciplinary workshop supported by TJI and INCORE, at the Ulster University on 1st October 2019 9.30 am – 5.30 pm at Ulster University, Belfast.
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.
In order to encourage participants with limited resources, a small number of travel bursaries are available. More details on this coming soon.
