Workshop The memory of Communism in Europe: actors, norms, institutions

Paris, 15th-16th May 2014

Twenty years after the fall of the Soviet bloc, contestedmemories of Communism are being constantly reactivatedby political and social actors in the former Eastern bloc.Conflicting narratives on the Communist past aresimultaneously getting torn out of their national frameworks through the increasing involvement of international and transnational actors in the “management of the Communist past”.

This workshop aims at discussing the recent proliferation of debates on Communism in local, national and international venues by focussing on the writing of the history of Communism (textbooks, museums, historical debates…); the legal assessment of Communism (domestic laws, trials…); the internationalization of narratives and norms (symbolic condemnation of the ‘crimes of Communism’ by the Council of Europe and the European Union, case law of the European Court of Human Rights).

Papers discussing in theoretical and conceptual terms the framing of social representations of Communism in different national contexts are welcomed. Additionally, papers with a comparative approach or a transnational perspective will be very well received.

Proposals for papers should contain a title and a brief summary (100 words). Deadline for submission is 1stDecember 2013. Papers accepted will be taken into consideration for the publication agenda of the Working Group on Politics of Memory.

Seminar:séminaire-chantier Frontière, patrimoine et enjeux de territoire dans le nord de la France

Séminaire-chantier Frontière, patrimoine et enjeux de territoire dans le nord de la France
Godewaersvelde et Dunkerque, 18-19 octobre 2013

La rencontre se déroulera en deux temps forts :

– le vendredi 18 octobre à partir de 10h, au Musée de la vie frontalière de Godewaersvelde, acteurs belges et français du patrimoine se réuniront autour dâune table ronde où le questionnement portera plus spécifiquement sur la manière nouvelle dont les actions de patrimonialisation marquent aujourdâhui une frontière franco-belge dont les traités européens du XXe siècle ont changé la signification historique ;
– le samedi 19 octobre à partir de 10h, dans lâancien bâtiment du remorquage du port de Dunkerque, la réflexion sâélargira à une réalité frontalière plus complexe, en ce lieu si particulier qui est marqué à la fois par la frontière franco-belge, la frontière franco-anglaise et celle entre Flandre maritime et Flandre intérieure.

Chacun de ces moments sera marqué par la volonté dâouvrir la réflexion aux enjeux de territoire qui sous-tendent les processus de mise en patrimoine ainsi quâà la prise en compte de la dimension interculturelle que ceux-ci revêtent.

Le séminaire organisé par les Archives municipales de Dunkerque, en collaboration avec le Groupement dâIntérêt Scientifique iPapic (Institutions patrimoniales et pratiques interculturelles), le laboratoire IRHiS (Université Lille3) et le Département du Nord.

Workshop: ‘What makes heritage decision-making difficult’, MadLab (Manchester, UK), 15th October

Linked to ‘How should decisions about heritage be made project?’http://codesignheritage.wordpress.com<http://codesignheritage.wordpress.com/>

What makes heritage decision-making difficult?

Workshop, Manchester, MadLab
15th October 2013, 11-4pm

• How are decisions about heritage made where you live or work?
• What are the tensions or difficulties that come up in heritage decision-making?
• What are your experiences of ‘participation’ in museum and heritage contexts?
• What might make heritage decision-making more democratic?

We’re a group of people who care about heritage, coming from different perspectives and with different roles – from grassroots organisers to planners, funders and researchers. We were funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council to work together between February and May this year to co-design a research project that would get to the crux of something we were all finding difficult – how decisions about heritage get made.

After four months months of head scratching, we think we’ve come up with a useful framework for enquiry into this topic<http://codesignheritage.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/our-story-so-far-and-what-were-going-to-do-next/> and have secured further funding for a 12 month action research project.

As we kick this second phase of the research off, we’re really keen to test our thinking with others working in this area and to start by trying to make sense of the ‘blocks’ or ‘sticking points’ in decision making about heritage. We’re running a workshop in Manchester on 15th October and would love people to join us to develop our thinking.

When we were working together to design the research project, we noticed that difficulties and tensions in decision making often come up around:

• questions of expertise and quality;
• definitions of what counts as ‘heritage’;
• the responsibility of stewardship;
• the desire to work ‘on behalf of’ everyone, the public or the future.

In the workshop we will all work together through a few different activities in order to push further our framing and conceptualising of these issues. We will:

1) Map and visualize decision-making in all of our projects, organisations and places.
2) Work on real life examples where these ‘blocks’ or ‘sticking points’ emerge (and we’ll ask all participants to suggest examples).
3) Delineate further the some nubs or cruxes of these ‘blocks’ or ‘sticking points’ which the action research will seek to investigate and address.
4) Identify some success criteria for the research – how will we know when we’ve made progress?

We have a very small budget for travel but can cover local travel expenses or make a small contribution towards those travelling from further afield.
To express your interest, just email us by 30th September with your answers (no more than 500 words in total) to two questions:

1) Can you give an example of a heritage decision you’ve been involved in?

2) Why are you interested in thinking about decision making?

Workshop:Culte ou patrimoine. Journée d’étude

« Culte » ou « Patrimoine » ?

Journée d’étude

Jeudi 10 octobre 2013 – de 10h à 17h30

Centre Norbert Elias

École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales

Centre de la Vieille Charité – 3ème étage – Salle de réunion

Les politiques patrimoniales, dans leur relation aux cultes, problématisent la disponibilité culturelle des références religieuses en régime de laïcité. Cette journée d’étude entend questionner l’entrelacement observable entre les notions de « culte » et de « patrimoine » en se basant sur le croisement et la mise en perspective des points de vue sociologiques, anthropologiques, historiques et communicationnels.

Sous cette approche pluridisciplinaire, l’analyse de cas empiriques révèle les affinités, tant pratiques que théoriques, repérables entre les notions de « culte » et de « patrimoine » en pointant les différenciations d’usages que suppose, pour les sciences sociales, la mobilisation de ces prédicats à des fins de description et d’analyse : dans quelle mesure les expériences cultuelles et patrimoniales se consolident-elles réciproquement ? Comment les praticiens (conservateurs, restaurateurs, amateurs, collectionneurs ou même théologiens) qui sont aux prises avec ces notions se coordonnent-ils aux fins d’un agir public à même de les faire exister ? Et, de là, ne peut-on envisager quelques possibilités méthodologiques de décrire les dispositifs cultuels à partir de leurs composantes mémorielles et sensibles ?

Ces questions conduisent à saisir les notions de « culte » et de « patrimoine », non comme des catégories d’emblée descriptives, mais comme des formats d’épreuves constitutives de dynamiques différenciées de mise en ordre et de connaissance du monde. Loin du partage qui tend classiquement à situer les opérations cultuelles et patrimoniales comme relevant de logiques fondamentalement disjointes, « culte » et « patrimoine » reposeraient alors sur la convocation, dans un temps et un espace donnés, d’entités (divines, morales, politiques…) indissociables des qualités différenciées d’affects, de perceptions et de jugements qui se trouvent à leurs fondements.

CFP: Second ACHS Conference, 2014

The Association of Critical Heritage Studies runs a biannual conference, the first of which was held at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden in 2012.

2014 conference:

The 2014 conference will be held in Australia. Initial contact for this conference is Laurajane Smith. The call for papers .

Call for sessions

Association of Critical Heritage Studies
Second biannual Conference, Canberra, 2-4th December 2014

The second Conference of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies (ACHS) will be held at the Australian National University, Canberra in December 2014. This conference builds on the energy and momentum of the first Conference held at the University of Gothenburg in June 2012, which attracted almost 500 delegates from 47 countries and all continents. We wish to continue the first conference’s call to re/theorise heritage studies, and to explore further many of the themes that emerged from that conference.

The CFP for the first conference called for the establishment of:
“an extensive network of heritage scholars across the globe in order to debate and discuss cutting-edge research in the field of heritage studies. We see Heritage Studies as emerging from diverse disciplinary fields, in particular public history, memory studies, museology, cultural heritage, tourism studies, architecture and planning, conservation, as well as cultural geography, sociology, cultural studies and policy, anthropology, archaeology and ethnomusicology, artistic research and artistic practices”.

The ACHS was formed at this conference, and the extremely wide range of fields represented at Gothenburg showed the appeal that a critical approach to heritage held for many researchers. Chapters of the ACHS have been formed in Scandinavia, the USA, India and Australia.

The 2012 CFP also stressed that submissions should: “encourage cross cutting thinking and should not be afraid to try to theorise what heritage studies is and where it should go. They should be underpinned by an active move away from site- and artefact-based definitions of heritage in a traditional sense and should pursue instead a range of methodologies and questions aiming at interdisciplinarity stemming from social science, scholarly traditions, natural science, and also areas such as artistic practices and the performing arts.” The Gothenburg conference also highlighted a new set of sensibilities and theoretical sophistication in heritage studies. Please note that, as per the 2012 conference, we are looking for papers that go beyond case study or site based reports – we are not looking for ‘the usual suspects’ – but expect theoretically informed and innovative proposals.

We are aiming to make sure that the next conference builds on the networking and theorising that were so much a feature of the first conference.

In order to do this we have suggested some over-arching themes, but feel free to submit proposals that are outside these:

• Exploring the critical in critical heritage studies.
• CHS and emerging and received Asian heritage sensibilities.
• CHS and working class and industrial heritage.
• CHS, emotion and affect.
• CHS and memory studies.
• What can CHS offer to the study of intangible heritage.
• Critical approaches to the heritage of diaspora, migration and ethnicity.
• CHS, aesthetics, poetics of place/conservation as creative practice.
• New media and computer mediated heritage.

We are now calling for session proposals. Sessions may include paper presentations (of 4, 8 or 12 papers), roundtables, workshops, exhibitions, performances, audio visual presentations, amongst others. 

• The deadline for the call for sessions is: 1st November 2013.

• Online submission of session proposals can be done using the following link:
http://criticalheritagestudies.org/submissions/australia-2014

• The deadline for the call for papers will be: 1st of June 2014. Please note that this call is not yet open and a general call for papers will be announced later in 2013.
(Please do not submit abstracts for individual papers at this stage, unless they are included in a proposal for a theme or a session – this is a call for sessions, not papers).

Fees – TBA, updates will follow soon.

Venue: Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia (for information about Canberra see http://www.visitcanberra.com.au/). Please note that we advise booking airfares to Canberra from the Northern Hemisphere as soon as possible.

CFP:Tourism in the Americas – Americas Research Group – Newcastle University, UK

1st announcement and call for abstracts

Americas Research Group<http://www.ncl.ac.uk/hss/frdg/americas/>
Newcastle University<http://www.ncl.ac.uk/>

Workshop: “Tourism in the Americas”

Venue: Research Beehive, 2.20, Old Library Building, Newcastle University, UK
Date: Thursday, 21st November 2013

This one-day workshop aims to fill a gap in the current scholarly debate about tourism in the Americas (North, Central and South). We hope that this event may establish lasting networks between post-graduate research students and early career scholars in this relatively neglected but important area of research.

Call for Papers
Tourism is arguably the world’s largest industry and as such is a high priority in state plans for economic development. Within the framework for development espoused by neo-liberal political projects, tourism is seen as an ideal vehicle for growth as it “adds value” to “cost free” or “common-pool” resources such as sunshine, natural environments and “exotic” local people. Countries in the Americas have an abundance of these attractions and have been pursuing policies that aim at attracting an increased proportion of the world’s tourism market. However, the pursuit of tourism as a development strategy is not without dissent. Established critiques focus on its lack of environmental and cultural sustainability, as well as the uneven distribution of its economic benefits. At a time of global economic crisis and in response to changing relations between the northern and southern hemispheres many are questioning the validity of neoliberal development. The time is apt to look at tourism through the lens of critiques of market-led development, and to analyse the impacts of tourism in different realms of social life.

This workshop aims to engender interdisciplinary and inter-regional discussion of tourism in the Americas in a friendly, informal environment. We welcome papers that address, but are not limited to, the following themes:

– Development, neo-liberalism and emerging alternatives

– Sustainable development and environmental protection

– Social justice and exclusion

– Place-making and cultural transformation

– Cultural revival and preservation

– Heritage

– Mass tourism and alternative tourism

– Mega-events, tourism and development

Grant: Postdoc Memory Holocaust

Postdoctoral position available for work on AHRC-funded impact project

Mock-up of Exhibition Panels: Coming-to-Terms with the Past in Germany and South Africa

As part of an AHRC-funded follow-on project (to the major research grant ‘Germans as Victims? Discourses of German Wartime Suffering’, which ran 2005-08), the German department at Leeds is now looking to employ a postdoctoral research fellow to assist on a collaboration with the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation (Cape Town), Beth Shalom Holocaust Centre (UK), and the Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah, which is based in Leeds. Professor Stuart Taberner will be leading the project, with input from Leeds colleagues Professor Paul CookeDr Helen Finch and Dr Matt Boswell, and from Professor Bill Niven (Nottingham Trent).

In brief, we will be designing an exhibition on the German experience of coming-to-terms with the past for display at the South African Holocaust and Genocide centres in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, and at Beth Shalom, and working with Beth Shalom on teaching materials deriving from the exhibition and with the Blah Blah Blah theatre company on a three-month drama workshop, also based on the exhibition, for young people in Leeds. In both the UK and SA, the exhibition will be ‘inflected’ to draw comparisons with contemporary issues relating to the British colonial past, immigration and refugees (in the UK) and the legacy of apartheid in South Africa. There will be public events in South Africa and the UK to mark the launch of the exhibition around Holocaust Memorial Day in late January 2015.

The postdoctoral research fellow will participate in the knowledge exchange in the UK and SA, be heavily involved in the drafting of the exhibition, work intensively on the teaching materials, and contribute to the public events and the drama workshop. He/she will also help with the routine administration of the project, and with coordination of partners.
